This appears to be another very simple glider kit by CMR, but a couple of features add a little complexity. These are the tiny separate cockpit hatch and choice of two sizes of wing. The fit of these is OK, but require careful trimming and alignment for a really good fit, along with a bit of filler. Even so, the kit is easily built and provides an extremely interesting high speed fully aerobatic glider model - Surely an interesting addition alongside a model of the Messerschmitt Me 163 rocket fighter, as it was used to train pilots in high speed glider flight and landings.
