Item no.: AN112501
SHK - glider, kit including GRP-fuselage, wingspan 4000mm
Aeronaut # 112501
The SHK was based on the single-seat aerobatic Standard Austria, designed by Ruediger Kunz in 1958. In 1965 the Standard Austria was redesigned in the German Schempp-Hirth factory in Kirchheim (S-H-K) with the help of Klaus Holighaus. The new version had a wingspan of 17 m and a retractable landing wheel. From 1967 the SHK-67 was equipped with a brake parachute in the rear fuselage.
This model is a rendition of the SHK, factory number 27, identification number D-5445, which was stationed in Uebersberg near Reutlingen for some time and is built to 1:4.25 scale from plans provided by Schempp-Hirth.
The model has a wingspan of 4000mm and comes with a GRP fuselage, a vacuum formed canopy and parts for the cockpit interior. The tail section can be detached for access to the V-tail´s control mechanism.
The wing section is a modified S 4233 and the wings have a built-in washout, which improves overall handling as well as thermal soaring qualities.
The SHK is a good natured and well balanced sailplane which is ideal for thermal soaring and medium slope soaring conditions. A retractable landing wheel and tow line release are available as accessories.
The model comes with laser-cut wooden parts for wings and V-tail. The popular aero-naut building jig makes building easy and accurate. Sheeting material for wings and V-tail is high-quality obechi veneer, precisely laser-cut for easy building. A special fabric glued to the back of the veneer as reinforcement makes handling easy.
The kit contains:
- High-quality GRP fuselage with detachable tail section
- Vacuum-formed canopy with frame
- Wing mounting material
- Aluminium spoilers
- Wing locks
- Miscellaneous plywood and balsa parts
- Small-parts bag and decals
- Further the kit includes all necessary laser-cut parts, pine and balsa stock for conventional built-up wings
- Detailed building instructions will help you build this beautiful sailplane step by step
