Designed in Britain by John Stanley Sproule in 1936. It was a single seat intermediate training 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, "The Kirby Kadet was produced by Slingsby as a trainer just one step better than the primary Dagling, capable of soaring well enough for inexperienced pilots to gain their 'C' badges. The Kadet came up to expectations. Over 430 were built altogether, the most numerous of all British gliders."
