The Buzz 400 excels at relaxing flying. Although not
highly aerobatic, it is capable of basic aerial maneuvers.
An easy-to-build-and-fly modern
of the Buzzard
The Buzzard Bombshell, a FF gas model, was designed by Joe Konefes in 1940 and published
in Air Trails that same year. It was later
kitted by Maircraft Inc.
Today the Buzzard Bombshell
remains a classic among the airplanes
of yesteryear and during its time
was well rooted in championships
The Stevens AeroModel Buzz 400
is a modern twist on the Bombshell
and echoes the lines of its predecessor;
however, the airframe has been
modernized to favor RC. The results
are stunning in terms of charm, and
it offers an exceptional building
experience for the novice model
builder and pilot.
The Buzz 400 kit has been
manufactured using state-of-the-art
CAD/CAM systems featuring a unique
interlocking construction process.
When compared with traditional
construction methods, it will save
shorten the building time.
A novice builder will be amazed at
the precision of the parts fit and how
intuitively the manual addresses the
building process. Even an experienced
builder will enjoy this build and love
What to Expect
The Buzz 400 comes in a polybag.
Open it carefully and save it to use
over your building board as a nonstick barrier. You can expect to find
16 sheets of laser-cut wood, building
instructions, a precut windshield,
prebent landing gear, and a vinyl profile
pilot figure. Also included are a Du-Bro
tail skid, 21/2-inch DuBro Super Light
Wheels, two complete hardware packs
with everything to complete the build,
and finally, the smell of charred wood.
What? No plans? You don’t need
them with the Stevens AeroModel
tab, interlocking, and self-jigging

the method and includes good, clear
