Well it must be scale then, would be nice to see one in the Turkish livery.

I have just completed a series of drawings of the Weltensegler (World Gliders) early gliders from 1919 - 1925 for a 'Customer', free as usual, but I don't think you will be creating models of these.

Hi Vince,

Interesting looking biplane glider! Did the full size actually fly?

There are no reports of it flying, but it was well built

Hi Vince,

I am tempted to ask for a copy of the drawings, just to have a go at building it. I reckon it would need a number of build iterations to get it to fly at all. 2.5m to 3m span might work.

Finally, a chance to maiden the Habicht. A weighty bird with 3.5lbs of lead up front (AUW15lbs) nevertheless a couple of short test flights showed a decent roll & loop capability and a very safe stall with the HQ35 sections...
