General Information

The beauty which never really had a chance to shine. Not many have been built. Less have been flown.
If you ever thought about building this magnificent jet, then now it’s the time to pull the trigger. CARF-Models is carrying this “Skygate” Albatros into execution, consummating what Stephan Voelker had started.
The Albatros is a very large jet with 2.37m wingspan, more then 3m length. The word „Museum Scale“ does not describe the detailing of the kit enough. So we started with the L-39 Albatros as an all silver, highly prefabricated builders kit first. In addition to the all-silver-version, CARF Models also offers ARF schemes painted in the molds.





If you are planning to build an L-39 Albatros in the near future, then it’s wise to go with the CARF Models L-39 Albatros. For several reasons:

  • Highest prefabrication, even if we don’t want to use the word ARF, it will come close to it
  • Designed by the 4-times Jet World Champion Stephan Voelker based on all his experience with the high-end model jet technology
  • Built at the sophisticated production plant of CARF Models, using the very best materials and extraordinary quality control
  • Straight forward build, following an exact and complete instruction manual
  • Well engineered, tested and proven scale landing gear available
  • Great flight envelop, slow flight, aerobatics capabilities
  • Well organized CARF typical spare parts supply and after sales service



CARF Models does not supply empty fiberglass shells and a wealth of plywood formers to be installed by the modeler. A CARF Model and also the L-39 Albatros can’t be called “builder’s kit”. It’s as highly prefabricated as you can imagine, so that you don‘t have to purchase additional “further building stages” and extra cost. CARF includes this free of charge for you. Look through the photos to see what you get for your investment.

Excuse our excitement, but: Get one! It’s awesome!

BREITLING L-39 Albatros

The Breitling Jet Team flys the Czech training aircraft Aero L-39C "Albatros" since 2001. I have build my model after the  ES-YLP, the NR.7 from the Breitling Jet Team. I`ve build my model with the documents from 2009.

My model is different to the other „competition“ L-39 not only in the color. The entire surface has been specifically tailored to the ES-YLP and rebuilt. In addition I can accept some parts of Stephan Voelker. Some other scale parts I have constructed as 3D solids in a CAD and printed out with a 3D printer. To have a suitable pilot in the cockpit, i’ve scanned myself with a proffesinal 3D Scanner. The head was then created with the help of a 3D printer.

The first flight of the model took place in northern Italy in April 2014. The model flew almost perfectly from the first few meters. With more flights, the focus of iGyro was adjusted and set. So the plane was ready for the first elimination contest for the Jet World Masters in 2015. At the first competition already in the static judging, the L-39 showed the full potential. Unfortunately I could not attend competition flight for technical reasons. At the second competition all worked out, I was able to prove at the Swiss Cup in 2014 the good 2nd place. So also the qualification for the World Cup was made. In winter 2014/2015 the model has been meticulously prepared for the World Cup. As a result, I won my first competition, the Italy Jet Masters 2015. I was able to start with a good feeling in the 2015 World Championships in Leutkirch. The World Cup went for me without any problems and I could demonstrate my skills to the judges. Finally, I was able to achieve the good 9th place at my first World Cup.
