Order no.: 112501
Availability: active product
Price in Euro: 459,00 Euro
The SHK was based on the single-seat aerobatic Standard Austria, designed by Ruediger Kunz in 1958. In 1965 the Standard Austria
was redesigned in the German Schempp-Hirth factory in Kirchheim (S-H-K) with the help Klaus Holighaus. The new version had a
wing span of 17 m and a retractable landing wheel. From 1967 the SHK-67 were equipped with a brake parachute in the rear fuselage.
This model is a rendition of the SHK, factory number 27, which was stationed in Uebersberg near Reutlingen for some time and is built
to 1:4.25 scale from plans provided by Schempp-Hirth. The model comes with a GRP fuselage, a vacuum formed canopy and parts
for the cockpit interior. The tail section can be detached for access to the V-tail´s control mechanism. The wing section is a modified S
4233 and the wings have a built-in washout, which improves overall handling as well as thermal soaring qualities. The SHK is a good
natured and well balanced sailplane which is ideal for thermal soaring and medium slope soaring conditions. A retractable landing
wheel and tow line release are available as accessories. The model is available in two versions. Order-No. 1125/00 comes with
almost ready to cover obechi-sheeted foam wings. The V-Tail consists of balsa-sheeted foam parts to reduce weight. The wings have
been cut out for servo and spoiler installation. Order-No. 1125/01 comes with laser cut parts for wings and V-tail. The popular
aero-naut building jig makes building easy and accurate. Sheeting material for wings and V-Tail is high-quality obechi veneer,
precisely laser-cut for easy building. A special fabric glued to the back of the veneer as reinforcement makes handling easy.
The kit
contains: High-quality GRP fuselage with detachable tail section, vacuum-formed canopy with frame, wing mounting material,
aluminium spoilers, wing locks, miscellaneous plywood and balsa parts, small-parts bag and decals. Depending on the version the kit
includes obechi-sheeted foam wings and balsa sheeted V-tail or laser-cut parts, pine and balsa stock for conventional built-up wings.
Detailed building instructions will help you build this beautiful sailplane.
