Keil Kraft Elmira

Has anyone any photos of the Keil Kraft Elmira or of the full size Elmira which I believe was a USA version of the Mimmoa(not sure of spelling). I have the plans to build an Elmira but I do not know what profile/shape the fus should be to enable me to make the fus formers. Any help at all would be appreciated.

Jeese that's a blast fom the past I had one of these when I was a schoolboy sadly I never finished it. The love of slope flying remains today..... I would love to see one take to the air.

Hm, found this thread via Google as I still have a 1971 vintage Elmira, about 2/3 built. I'm planning on helping my grandson finish it off, after he's done his 'apprenticeship' in model building of course.

As a historical point to the first posting on this thread, there never was a real Elmira, it was just a KeilKraft generic soarer design. It took design points from sailplanes of the period but wasn't a model of any particular real world aircraft.
