I like unusual models and this one really looks the part. Nicely executed, Lee

Nigel, the WLM is interesting. Here is a photo of the instruments if it helps and a pdf article about the glider with some scale detail

Thanks, It was a fun project and I really like the history / story behind this sailplane and Bill Manuel.

Yes, I have a full size PDF of my Autocad. Since I was building this and some details in my head not all of this was jotted down on the plans. I did take some pictures at various stages and can share these as well as provide additional points with anyone wishing to build this.

Whatever you have Lee including cad files. You could email it to me here: cliffatscalesoaring.co.uk (change the at to @) Vince and I could probably turn it into a working plan for anyone to download.

I had the article Vince but not the photo so as always - you come up trumps! Much appreciated. WLM cockpit is actually pretty complicated for a vintage glider - maybe as they were putting air force pilots in it they wanted it to look the part? I'll do something but it will probably be a little simplified - I like the challenge of trying to make things look detailed for a minimum effort.

Next up...1/4 scale Habicht. 40 years too late, I just discovered a way of pinning ply to board so that it remains flush. Having drilled out the ply, a small length of heatshrink tube is slid over the pin and compressed: seems to work a treat... ;)

We look forward to those high speed, inverted passes across the slope...
