Baynes Bat model kit

We dropped by our local model kit store to take a look around, and OK, I'll admit I'm out of touch but there is some obscure stuff out there. I had never heard of a Baynes Bat, couldn't imagine there would be a plastic kit made of it, or that it would be made by a company in the Czech Republic. 

The Baynes Bat was an British experimental tailless glider projected as a means to fly a tank into a warzone. The 1/3 scale 33 foot wingspan prototype was a success but the project was abandoned due to lack of a suitable tank.
