Just a little note nothing significant but the drawing description specifies K8B. This is in my opinion incorrect. With the canopy shown it is a K8
This smaller canopy was supplied with the initial production run, later a full blown canopy was supplied to replace the small one and the model was called K8B. I do know because I did fly both full scale options myself last century.
For your info, after I have completed the current design job for Cliff Evans the plan is to design a K8 model for myself at 4.8m wing span (ETA april 2020) . This is then the same scale as my Ka6E design
The K8 design will have both canopy options for a potential builder to choose from

Very interesting for me to hear that you are planning an K8. Could be a new project for me too.
Will you publish your drawings Jilles?
