Wing Span of Full Size Glider: 17.458 m (57.3 feet)

Designed and built in Germany in 1935. It was a single seat high performance glider.
The kit includes 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, "Schleicher recognized the growing demand for cross country sailplanes and admired the Fafnir.  He commissioned Hans Jacobs to design a simplified version which would be suitable for factory production and not prohibitively expensive.  The prototype, called Rhönadler, was ready for the 1932 Rhön. (There had been an earlier Rhönadler, a record breaking two seater.)"
