I am looking for an un-built scale sailplane / glider kit. Would love to find something like a Kirby Kite, K6e, Kirby Cadet or similar vintage sailplane kit. 1/4 or 1/5 scale would be good for me.
If you have got a scale kit looking for a new home them please let me know.
Really open to suggestions and offers.

As you seem to interested in woodies, have you thought of getting a plan/short kit from Cliff Evans at Laser Cut Sailplanes. You should find many to choose from.
The Charlesworth 1/4 scale Ka6e flies very well & I’ve built 2 of the Olympia 2b.

I have a "Blue Airlines" SB-7 kit for sale, not started. It's quarter-scale I think, or very close. I will include a separately-bought monowheel retract unit and gear servo. This was a "to-do" project from around 20 years ago that never got done!
Hear are pics of the aircraft:

(It's not the V-tail one, but the T-tail one with the fin that looks like it's leaning forward.)
Please phone me on 023 80771527 if you are interested. You are welcome to visit (I live in Southampton) to have a look, but please phone first.
