Resin Model Kit
Scale: 1:72
Wing Span of Full Size Glider: 13.6 m (44.6 feet)
Wing Span: 18.9 cm (7.4 inches)
Length: 9.1 cm (3.6 inches)
Designed in Germany in 1936. It was a single seat aerobatic glider.
The kit includes the complete airframe, decals and assembly and painting instructions.

The excellent book Sailplanes 1920 - 1945 by Martin Simons includes an excellent write-up, photos and scale drawings of this glider.  A quote from the book, "Hans Jacobs designed the Habicht as a fully aerobatic sailplane for the air displays planned in conjunction with the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin.  It had to be capable of all possible maneuvers, including inverted flight, slow rolls and flick rolls. It would also need good gliding performance."
