Actully you should launch an appeal. 1.4m is actually 4'8".
I reckon she's 5'. Vertically challenged certainly.

Hobbyking has it. It's a Durafly. I had one and they are pretty nice for a foamy.

Hi Sky Captain:

Thanks, I saw that the one the guy was holding was foamy but the one the gal is holding is, WOW ! Got to look that one up.

Yep it's a Durafly Spit from HobbyKing. I did a repaint and a few mods on mine and turned it into a PSS ridge soaring glider - flies great

PSS Spitfire (2 min 54 sec)

And great Coastal air there (and nice flying) too

Fantastic LZ you guys have at that side (jealous here).

Nice to see the other 'scalies' up with you - was one of them a 'Stang?

The other model in the vid is a LEG 60" FW-190. We have a lot of fun re-enacting WW2 dog fights

Say, Kiwi...

Totally off-topic here, but have you seen this?

I reckon some of your Spitty footage would have given some of these blokes a run for their money

LOL, no I hadn't seen that. Will have to see what I have in the can. The vid was of the Spit's maiden flight so I was somewhat gingerly testing it's flight envelope. Handles pretty well - just gotta watch the tip stall at slow speeds.
