Default Help me identify this scale sailplane

Wingspan 14'-4" (Approx 4.5 M)
Fuselage is fiberglass
Wing airfoil has trailing edges drooped similar to a selig airfoil.

Need help identifying kit manufacturer for the rest of the parts such as: Canopy, Spoilers, hinging, linkage etc, etc.

I plan to sell this sailplane.

As near as I can tell, these kits go for around $1K

How about a Salto? Not sure if they make your particular kit any longer though...

Looks more like the Arch Angel SHK from South America.

Well if so;
If it is in fact an Arch Angel kit...who manufactures it?
If it is in fact a Graupner kit...are the parts available?
This is what I need to know:
Where do I acquire the rest of the parts to complete this kit???

Does the arch angle kit come in yellow? What you showed me was a white kit...

I don't think that the Arch Angel kit is in production any more. I will have to check the other site to see if they are still up and running or not. And yes they did come in yellow. but you had to sprcial order it that way. I have one still in the box that is unbuilt as of yet. Have a few other projects to get done first. Not real sure of the Graupner kits. Will get back to you though.

Canopys are not as hard to make as you think. It will be some work, not as bad as you think. What else do you need for it?

Thanks Tinker,

Trying to figure out how to fabricate the control horns on the V-tail, How to fabricate spoilers and mechanisms, How to fabricate a retractable wheel, and where to purchase metric phoenolic round wing joiner. Would like to see a set of plans for this glider to see what they had in mind...[8D]

Still searching for kit manufacturer. Looking up some stuff in Peru.[:@]
