The thin flat-bottom airfoil of Goldberg's Comet Interceptor was the influence accredited to Lew Mahieu Kiwi design. As an employee of K&B in 1954 when the Torpedo Green Head 15 was introduced, Lew designed the 48" span 375 in.sq. Kiwi to meet the then FAI Free Flight rules with the new engine. The FAI Kiwi was K&B's first and only venture into the competition kit market which was eventually sold to Guillow. Having experience with the 1/2A Kiwi; when we acquired an OS Max 15, and remembering our K&B Kiwi go OOS from Fort Meyers FL in 1964 with a TD .15, we were ready for another A size Kiwi. flying weight of our Kiwi is 15.1 oz. The BMJR Kiwi-A is true to the original design with the only changes to accommodate laser cutting technology for ease of assembly. The BMJR Kiwi-A is perfect for NFFS class A Nostalgia and the new Vintage FAI event.
