New TG-3/TG-3A at 2.1 meters

Scale buffs may want to check out the build log for the newest scale Schweizer over here at the slope forum. As shown at only 20 ounces all up, I am hoping that the TG-3 foamie becomes the new standard for clubs or pilots that want to learn or teach aerotowing. We took detailed photos of how to layout and shape the fuse to get scale realism in a quick to build, durable, yet lightweight airframe.
