For a version without motors the wing loading would be about 8-9 oz/sq ft so I think that the GWS-38 would make a good sloper. It should have no trouble handling winds up to 15 MPH. Above that you can always add ballast at the CG the same as with other slopers.

My 41 inch span P-38 is a very good flying model and it wants to glide forever on the landing approach. The gliding landing approach is also fast. The wing loading on this model is 9 oz/sq ft.
