DFS Olympia

You've got some information and 3-views in The book "Sailplanes 1920-1945" by Martin Simons,
The sailplane is DFS Meise (Olympia) 1939
That isn't the year, but I think is the same plane.

Hi Steve,
If the Olympia is in fact the sailplane that you are looking to model, I have a friend who owns a full-size example. If you have any questions I am sure he would be happy to answer them. You can reach him at
