Next up: a 1/4 scale version of the oldest surviving Minimoa HB-282. The principal differences are:

1: Lowered dihedral
2: Smaller rudder
3: Schempp-Hirth style upper & lower airbrakes
4: Blown canopy

The plan will be suitably modified for anyone wishing to build this variant...

The modified rudder is quite straightforward...

In a bit of a quandary regarding the canopy. My nr. 3rd scale version had the scale brass tubing framework, but it had to be retained with non-scale brass hinges. As I'm reluctant to give up the practical benefits of magnet-retention, I've opted for a wooden frame instead. The good new is...the Skylark canopy has come trumps again!
