Thanks for posting these pictures! They are beautiful! Especially the ones from YU-4103 are really special. Anyone who knows what happened to this plane - as it seem to be in storage of the Aeronautical Museum in Belgrade?
There is still no progress on my Meteor. I decided to first finish a Caudron C460 1/3 what I started some 10 years ago. But that job is almost finished and then back to the lovely Meteor!

I have started the build of the Ikarus Meteor again. Weather was terrible so no excuses anymore! There is some work left in planking the left wing and even a repair is needed as the cat was a bit too heavy for a 2 mm balsa skin..
Jilles has provided me with a new design for the flap and aileron ribs. I did not want to follow the original design which showed full balsa construction. Now I can extend the balsa skin of the wing and build the flaps and ailerons in"situ". I will post pictures!
