Help!
Pioneer scale info thought!

I have a 2m span Pioneer scale kit that's waiting to be built. Everyone seems to be finishing her in yellow color scheme. Anyone aware of other color and acale theme for this scale glider?

LF-109 Pionyr

Toshiro,

Most Pionyrs are all-yellow, but there are a few that deviate from the standard scheme. Gordon Pearson did his in blue-on-white, which looks really nice. Or, you can just come up with your own scheme, which is what I am often inclined to do. Unless you are thinking of competing in a scale contest before a panel of judges with full documentation, etc., this is a great way to create a distinctive model that will stand apart from all the rest.

BTW, I have this kit, too (P&B Models 88" span LF-109), for Someday.

Don.

Oh, and I liked your article in the latest issue of QF on the Kalavinka. Good job!

Thanks for the info!

Dggliderguy Don,
Thank you for the pics. No wonder most of what I had dug up were all yellow in color. I did come across a B&W photo of one in probably green with Russian red star markings.
Will be a while before I can start building her. But, most definitely will. I dont know why, but it looks like I have a sweet spot for tandem two seat trainers . I have built and flown scale models of Grob Twin Astir, ASK21, and ASK13.
