LEG P51 Glider


Well I bought a Leading Edge Gliders 60" P51 kit about 3 years ago but put it on the shelf as other projects seem to have got in the way.
I bought it pre shaped and sanded with removable wing option. I also bought the EPP Build Clinic DVD set previous to this build so I was able to build and watch TV at the same time. I had previously built an EPP Schweizer 1-26 glider also sold by LEG but produced by Rocky Mountain Sailplane Factory so I had a bit of a heads up on the build style.
The build took a while but the result has been worth the effort. I decided to try my hand at some scale detail but have limited time frame with the upcoming Manilla Slope Fest . I chose SPEEDBALL ALICE as the inspiration and I am happy with the results so far. It is what I consider a good 20 footer (It will look great at 20 foot away). Just waiting on a suitable pilot to arrive to help complete the transformation.
More photos to come soon.
