SG 38 Schulgleiter / SK-38 Komar 1:72 Special Hobby The SG 38 Schulgleiter is a German high wing, cable braced single seat glider designed by Schneider, Rehberg and Hoffman in 1938. It was developed as a basic flight training aircraft. The primary means of launch being by bungee cord form a hill. As it was designed to be a solo flight aircraft the glider was designed to be easy to fly, and also to maintain. The SG 38 would play a significant role in training pilots for the Luftwaffe in WWII. Post war the aircraft was built under licence by AISA in Spain producing 50 aircraft, and by Elliotts of Newbury in the UK. Here they were used by the RAF under the Eton TX.1 designation. The Kit The first thing you notice on opening the box is that you get two kits in the box. The kit is very nicely moulded with a realistic fabric over frame effect. Some may consider it a bit overdone but you can always sand the relief down a bit if you want. The kit is fairly simple. The Main fuselage including the pilots seat, control column, landing skid and tail assembly is moulded as one part. To this is added the horizontal tail planes and the main wing. Rudder pedals and the tail plane bracing struts are added. Depending on which version is to be built there are two styles of pod to be added around the pilot (one version does not have these at all). A full rigging diagram is supplied for the bracing wires. Decals Decals are provided for; 5 gliders for the Czechoslovak.Polish/DDR boxing, and 7 gliders for the German/Slovak boxing. Decals mainly consist of serial numbers and tail markings only. Conclusion This is an interesting if not demanding kit of a subject not often kitted. Each boxing should make a pair of good looking models. Recommended. Czechoslovak/Polish/DDR German / Slovak Review sample courtesy of
