No Cliff , you are not losing it. Top left corner it says Vic Steel. I knew Vic had done a model of the A-15 but I have never been able to find the drawings. Now you have saved me the trouble. For general information, Peter Ocker published a short type history which used to be available on line.
The A-15 is one of my favourite sailplanes and not many people model Soviet sailplanes.

I don't like to cast doubt on Vic Steel's drawings ,but I wonder if the span as drawn is correct. It scales at 17M whereas I think it should be 18M. I have looked at all the reference material I can find and 10 give 18M and 4 give 17M span While it is true that 3 of the 4 giving 17M span are 3-view drawings, including a couple of Russian drawings, Antonov's own website gives 18M as does Krasilschikov in 'Gliders of the USSR'. Also looking at the Antonov wing drawing and adding up the rib spacing gives 18M.
Can anyone else comment?

Thank you very much for update the plans
How will the laminar profile behave on the model?
