Mopar,
I don't know anyone that makes the Blanik L-13, but the L-23 (T Tail) is a great flyer either on the slope or aero-towing.. I believe the wingspan is 2.8m or about 106".

ICARE has them.

OK, I'm confused.

Do you want an L-13 (conventional tail) or L-23 (T tail) as you've shown?

Hi Mopar,

Airworld makes a moulded L-13, 3.3metre span. They have a US office.
I've not been able to find any reviews on it unfortunately, if any one knows anything about this model please chime in.


Cheers
Steve

I purchased the Airworld Fox "all moulded" as they say. I was very dissappointed in the quality of the kit! very poor layup of the fuse ,hollow pockets of resign hidden by gelcoat, requiring lot of attention and finishing, a real builders fuse. The wings are moulded with wood as skins, "not glass" though very light, fuse very light but very incomplete, much reinforcing needed, and allowing for much customizing. Certainly not of the quality of what you get from "Soaring USA"or "I-Care.
