The glider model SHK is a further development of the Standard-Austria, which was designed in 1958 by engineer Rüdiger Kunz. In 1965, Standard Austria was revised by Klaus Holighaus at Schempp-Hirth, Kirchheim (S-H-K) with the collaboration of Klaus Holighaus. The wingspan was increased from 15 to 17 m and the SHK was fitted with a retractable landing gear. The SHK-67, built in 1967, had a drop-off brake parachute in the rear fuselage.

The model for the 1:4.25 scale model was based on the SHK, serial number 27, registration number D-5445, which was temporarily stationed at the glider area Übersberg near Reutlingen, Germany. 4000 mm span was created with the help of plans by Schempp-Hirth.

The GRP fuselage has moulded-in fuselage-wing transitions and a guide for the cabin frame. The rear part is removable - access to the storage and control of the pendulum control unit. The plastic cockpit parts are included in the kit.

The wing mounting consists of a 12 mm Ø round steel rod guided in a brass tube, a wing securing device is included. A modified Selig S 4233 profile was selected as the root profile and modified in two steps over the entire span. In addition, the wing got a geometric limitation. This design guarantees excellent flight behaviour, especially in circles, i. e. in thermal flight.

The flight characteristics of the model are well-balanced, ideal for thermal flying and not too hard wind conditions on the slope. A retractable undercarriage or towing coupling can be fitted at one's own discretion.

Technical data
The wings and tail units are completely made of wood in ribbed construction. All parts are laser-cut and built step by step with the help of the proven aero-naut-helling. The planking of the ribbed surface is also carried out with high-quality Abachi veneer, which has been precisely lasered and only needs to be glued on cleanly. To improve elasticity, the planking was bonded with a specially developed textile fibre.
