The Horten IV.a flying wing sailplane was built in 1939 in Germany. The Horten IVa is one of the most elegant and intriguing sailplane designs.
The kit includes the complete airframe, glazed cockpit canopy, 1/72 scale plans, 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 wing had a high aspect ratio, the pilot was in a semi prone or half kneeling position faired with a smoothly contoured canopy. The controls were operated by a yoke and there was a padded chin rest, essential if the pilot was to look directly ahead for long periods."
