Blanik L-13

I am looking for a 3d-model or a cad drawing for a Blanik L-13. I have found some good PDF files but was looking for some Cad stuff.

Thanks Erich

I have some incomplete work in Rhino
but can export to whatever.

Using plans and 3-views
I've just taken the formers and skinned them to achieve a 3d model


Pm me

jpg of plans found on net below 2.6mb ( it might not upload )

and a couple of other screen shots from my work.

A spar problem has grounded the entire world wide L-13 fleet. I bet a model would be more expensive than a full scale right now. For all intents, the FS L-13 is an airplane looking pile of scrap or artwork.

I know how you think Len 40% or bigger. I was thinking 1/3 scale for me. Maybe I can put a big ass rocket on top so I can blow by creeve.

That's a shame, as the L13 is a nice flying glider!

Sounds like an opportunity for someone to build a bunch of WINGS
and sell them to Blanik Owners.

Is 100% large enough for ya ? :-)

My sister owns the full size L-13 and spent thousands to have it refinished. The time, effort, and money down the tubes. It was damaged in a hail storm many years ago. Now Let doesn't want to do anything about it. That's ashame, we had it in our family for 41 years.

I would not mind to own a 4-4.5 m one. Where can I get one? Len probably knows!!

I have the Airworld 3.5 m version and it is a bit small!!
