The Nimbus 4D  is the current open class super two seater design in production by Schempp-Hirth in Germany. It is the successor to the earlier 24.6 m Nimbus 3D. The six piece (26.5 m span) Discus plan form wing has full span camber changing flaperons. It has a glide ratio of about 60. It's particular look with the triple taper leading edge and forward swept wings is really graceful in the air. We offer here a 1:3.75 (7 m span) scale reproduction, of this very high performance glider.

Never flown such large glider, you will be surprised how docile this glider is in the air, a real performer. Experience the feeling of flying a "large" scale glider. Thermals gracefully and you can cover amazing distances. Ultimate soaring!

This glider comes completely built, and ready for radio installation. All parts are of high gloss white finish moulded parts. High strength wings with two flaps and two ailerons controls, live hinged and gapless. Comes with a 18mm hardened steel joiner. Fuselage reinforced with high strength carbon tows. Scale seat with instrument panels. 2K polyurethane painted parts for UV stability, no yellowish gel coat over the years. Top of fuselage repainted for seamless look. Available in full carbon version if requested.
