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.

Fibreglass is looking very cost effective all of a sudden!
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 . . . :)

Cheers

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!

Finally got mine balanced ready for test flight! All up weight 14.Lbs gives a wing loading of approx 20oz per square foot.
Hi Cliff,
Looks fantastic! I notice you have fitted air brakes rather than top surface spoilers as shown on the plan. Did you draw up this modification? Did you make the spoilers from scratch (I have seen the documentation elsewhere on the site!)?
