The Orlic is on my 'list' as a future build so I am enjoying your build. One thing... I never knew Henri Toulouse- Lautrec was a sailplane pilot! :lol:

Been working on the tail section,rudder and elevators,and shaping the fuse to make a solid base to screw down to.
The last picture could be a bit scary. 46% 3D me.

Well, at least Geoff's 'mini me' will be nearer the action and can see the windsock coming........... :mrgreen: :mrgreen:


What is the correct spelling , Orlic or Orlik?
