Colditz Glider


Has anyone built a model of the Colditz Glider? Does anyone know where I might find a plan?

Hello,

Im not sure if this will help, but I remember seeing a 3 view of the colditz cock in an old book about soaring in the UK. Also I believe either QFI or S&E modeler did a story about the glider which also had a three view. Kind of looked like a granau 2b. If you find anything please keep us updated.

Best Regards,

I know that this thread is rather old, but I have to ask.
Has anyone here built a model of the Colditz Cock?

Yes, someone did build a flying model, but it's a 1:1 scale.

Sweet looking glider and apparently a great flyer too!

It was a great idea, building a replica, while some of the original constructors still were around.
I have found a few 3views, but will probably have to draw the plans myself, and I will have to do something about the covering too, like running it through a printer somewhere, before covering the model.
