Designed in Germany in 1930. It was a single seat glider. The prototype flew in 1931.
The kit includes a complete airframe and assembly instructions (shown at right), but no decals.
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, "The Grunau Baby was an immediate success and Schneider began production. Not only the Grunau school but clubs all over Germany and elsewhere placed orders. Six Grunau Babies entered the Rhön competitions in 1932 and by the end of the year twenty two had been sold. Sets of plans were made available for amateur and other production."
