4.2 meter slingsby T53


Hi this is my latest build a T53 at 1/4 scale. It will be a wood fuz and foam venreer wings and built up tail. There are more pics on scalesoaring UK web. It may be a bit ugly but I like the silver ATC scheme and I have not seen a large scale model yet.Name: IMG_20160520_225228.jpg

Wings are now sheeted. I could not help but leen the parts together to see how it looks. It looks like it is going to be a big aircraft for a 4.3 meter span.Name: IMG_20160716_190113.jpg

Well done! You have made a fanstastic but unusual model and it looks superb in that color scheme.

What's next?

Hello, I'm starting to build a T53 and found this thread.
Can you please share the airfoil you've used on this model?

Many thanks
