Jilles Smits 1/3 Petrel by Brian Gowland

Post by Cliff Evans »

I supplied the kit of the Jilles Smits 1/3 scale Petrel to Brian Gowland. I have just been sent photos of the build so far to post for him. Brian is building the fixed tailplane version of the aircraft whilst Jack is building the AMT version in another thread here: viewtopic.php?f=12&t=2716.

Hi Brian.
Greetings from down under. I have built a couple of Jilles gliders. The Ask 18 and the Pws 101 and both were excellent kits and both fly very nicely and im sure your Petrel will be the same. Nice to see some nice green Nth Wales country side again.
Keep up the good work.
Lawrie.
