A few years back A model of the Fauvel AV-36 flying wing was featured in the Silent Flight magazine. According to Wikipedia about 100 were built in the early 1950's . I am a little surprised that so many were built , I am sure the full size one featured in the magazine was rebuilt and may even still be flying. On a visit to a nearby gliding club, to research a future project , I took these photo's in one of the hangers, could this be a Fauvel, or rather the remains of one???
if you’re interested in videos of Fauvel AV-36-models, just have a look here.
I’m in the progress of finishing a 1/3-scale-Fauvel-AV36 (out of a Muder-kit with 4 m ws, root rib is 53 cm!!!) - and that progress lasts for five years now…
But there really are chances to get the projekt finished this spring. Will post pictures as soon as the Fauvel is on the field and airborne.
