Designed originally back in 1943, the Super Sinbad was produced by Berkeley Models as a 62" span tow line glider.
We have taken those gorgeous, classic lines of the Super Sinbad and scaled it up to a 93" 2 channel glider for slope, bungee launch or with our new MotorPod as electric glider.
The body is built in two halves using an arrangement of formers, allowing you to keep that open structure but still build an accurate fuselage. The two piece wing uses the original aerofoil and is joined through a strong centre spar box with a 3mm laser cut steel wing joiner. We have also reinforced the keel area to allow installation of a bungee launch tow hook. A removable top hatch in front of the windscreen gives you easy access into the radio compartment.
Our kitset also includes our own re-drawn full-size plan.

Short Kit Or Complete Airframe Kit?
A Short Kit includes a full size printed plan and all of the laser cut parts that are required as part of the complete airframe build.
Items such as wing ribs, dihedral joiners, fuselage formers & fuselage parts, doublers, bulkheads and so on.
Every part which is a complex cut is precisely laser cut as per the plan and included in the short kit. Some kits may also include vacuum formed ABS parts like canopies or cowlings.
With a Short Kit, the only items you need to add to the laser cut parts to build a complete airframe are components which are simply cut to length. Parts such as wing spars, wing sheeting or fuselage sheeting for example.
A Complete Airframe Kit includes the Laser Cut Short Kit, plus the entire list of additional materials required to complete the airframe build.
Select this option when adding to your cart to purchase all of the materials required to complete the airframe build.
Every kit includes a full size printed plan, and where available the designers original construction notes. The kits do not include miscellaneous hardware such as pushrods, control horns, hinges, wheels etc.
