The Schweizer 1-26 is one of the most iconic Sailplane designs in the US. The 1-26 has the perfect form factor for a scale model Sailplane. Even at 40% scale it’s still very manageable, and will fit in most mid size vans or suvs. The 1-26’s flight envelope is amazing, from aerobatics to working light thermals, it can do it all. If your interested in a large Sailplane that’s affordable and transportable, this could be the perfect choice. Kit includes all laser cut wood parts, all wood stock plus1/32” plywood skins for the fully sheeted wings. Also included is a full size plan and instruction manual, crystal clear canopy, incorporated tow release, and basic hardware for completion.

    We love when people show interest in our kits; it means people are building things again, and that makes us happy! Although we would like to have inventory of all our kits, it's often difficult to achieve due to fluctuating demands aligned with our manufacturing capabilities. We are only a small business, so we apologize in advance if your kit is not in stock when you place your order. However, we assure you we will get it done in a timely manner. 

    Kind Regards, 

    Peter Goldsmith
