Celstar GA-1

Hi There,
During an outing to the slope one of the guys flew a Celstar aerobatic glider, designed and built locally in S.A. anyway it came to an abrupt end when the wings folded in a very strong wind. I asked what was
happening with the pieces ...bin no way I want them , I'll see what can be recovered and put it together for my son.
The long and the short of it is that I will build a simple ka-7 for my son and keep the Celstar for me.
A search on the internet revealed two models being built in Switzerland, home of one of the remaining Celstars ,another is in the USA.
I have rebuilt mine in the original S.A.Airways colour scheme and have yet to fly it.
