micro WWII handlaunch gliders

Just wanted to share my latest models. They are micro handlaunch gliders of WWII fighters. They came from a kit by Airwings which was produced back in 1993.
The B-17 has a 17.5" wingspan and the others are from 5" to about 6 1/2" wingspans.
They fly pretty well in my living room. I am going to put paper clip hooks on the fronts of a couple of them for rubberband launching. Should be fun.

Fun stuff. FAC has a contest category for jet models of this sort. Don't use a paperclip. music wire is much better suited to the task, and it should be firmly mounted.

Cool. They look like DJ Aerotech Roadkill planes.
