Post a picture of your SCALE sailplane


After seeing a picture of Vincent Crocketts vintage model posted on another thread here, I got an idea, why don't we keep a thread going by posting a nice picture of each glider you have, with a preferance towards vintage, there are lots of works of art out there that some of us never get to see because of distance, be great to keep a running thread of all the nice flying machines. I suggest a brief description of size, scale, scratch built or kit/arf. I'll start it off by posting a pic of my 1/3 ASK-13 from Rosenthal, I'm still adding bits to the cockpit, it is modeled after seeing pictures of the fullsize in the Netherlands.

Not sure if this would qualify as vintage.....
But here's my Pilatus B-4 by Karel Vagenknecht (sp). It is 1/3.5 scale and it flies very well. Wings/ stab/ rudder are foam core; sheeted with Obeechi. Fuselage is fibeglass. Ailerons utilize the RDS system. Has spoilers and a retractable landing gear.

Decals are made from sign vinyl floated on the Oracover.

Hi there,
Here's another ASK13, 1/5.3 scale (3m).
It's entirely hand-made, but hadn't make its first flight (too scared!).
There's a 1/4 Ka3 in progress (the building can be seen here).

My 1/3 ASK-13. Currently undergoing a slow rebuild/upgrade after becoming a victim of "dumb thumbs syndrome".

Orionis, did you purchase plans for your -13 or is it a self design? If purchased can you tell the source?

Hi Seanpcola,
I bought the plan from a forum-mate, but I think he doesn't have anymore left.
Are you interested in a copy of my own plans if he agrees?

Modern ships are cool here too, but if you have a vintage ship post it first, and i really want to see some of the ships from England, I know there are many stunning sailplanes we need to see. Even if you do not own a model but have a nice picture, go ahead and post it, we need eye candy!
