Thanks Jilles, I will chase that up, but keep in mind I'm at the other end of the country to Auckland . . :lol: Actually, I'm only 2 hours from a mutual friend, Jack. I am looking forward to seeing his new sagetta fly.

Cheers

Pat Teakle with his Moswey at White Sheet
Is that from this plan? Looks terrific. Good job.

PS:- Update on NZ 0.4mm ply supply. NZ$174.00 + GST(15%) + approx. $100 freight for 1.2 x 1.2m. Total NZ$300.10 OUCH! :o

Fibreglass is looking very cost effective all of a sudden!

Cliff,
Pat told me yesterday that his version weighed in at just over 12lb, so his building methods saved a couple of lbs & gave him a wing loading of approx 16oz/sq ft according to Pat.
This wing loading apparently helped him stay up at White Sheet when the conditions got a bit scratchy & others were landing.
Lovely looking model & I am sure that it will go well.

That's what I was thinking too. Specially when I have a 'mate' who owns a fibre glassing business ;) .

Looking good guys, Moswey III is jumping the queue the more I see of other models.
I bet if I saw a video of one (or two) flying it would be next. :D ;)
So, the target to beat is 12lbs, something to aim for . . . :)

It appears that Pat didn't use much ply at all.

HI,
Nice gull winged sailplane that I love and may be I'd like to build in the future at 1:2,5.!
maybe you know it, but here is a link that may be helpful for scale details.http://walkarounds.scalemodels.ru/v/wal ... via/Mosw_A...
to complete the one on SSUK, same glider but other pictures ! ;)
Not sure if the link was shortened when posted or if they have changed their site layout? Here is the current link:

I came across this example which appears to be in the UK:

Another variation on colour scheme! I don't think it is airworthy at the moment as it is still carrying the Swiss registration, but it does look very clean and in good order though!
