   Both in the pre-war years and during the war, the Grunau Baby IIB was the most widely used glider all around the world. It is estimated that about six thousand of these simple aircraft might have been built. While before the war, the Grunau Baby gliders were built mainly by amateur pilots using available drawings, with the war on the horizon the type entered almost mass production in Germany to serve as a basic training type with the NSFK – Nationalsozialistisches Fliegerkorps, a paramilitary organization within the Nazi party. And the same system of flying training was used by Germany allies such as Slovakia or Croatia.
   Our model of this important type comes on one styrene sprue joined by a clear one with the windshield. The decal sheet caters for two NSFK gliders, one of which flew in a camouflage scheme in Eastern Prussia in 1944 whilst the other one was flown from an airfield near the city of Dresden and featured a painted emblem of a sponsoring organisation. These two schemes are joined by two more, one from Slovakia with civil registration and one as owned by the Croatia air force.

-    accurate and nicely detailed model
-    interesting colour schemes
-    a type very important for the history of aviation
