Darmstadt D-28 “Windspiel”

by Steve Fraquet

This is a 4 meter model of this 1927 German designed glider. The all up weight is 13.5lbs / 6.1kilos and uses a ClarkY wing section from root to tip.The inboard flaps are very effective. The pilot’s head is made from a piece of white foam in the shape of an egg and then covered with plasticine into which the features were drawn. It was then hardened off in the oven.
