Glider for grandkids

In a fit of boredom after supper last night I decided to build a glider for my grandkids to play with when they visit. It is roughly based on the Thermic 30 solid balsa gliders I use to buy as a kid. They were great fliers and this one seems to do fairly well too.

WS 32" (12" center panel with 10" outter panels...that's higer math for me )

Chord is 4"

Boom is 1/4" sq. spruce

Trim on fuselage is 1/32 " ply.

For the airfoil I used a method I have see in this forum. I laminated a second layer of foam on the forward part of the wing and then sanded it to shape.
