Kupper Ku-7

Post by VinceC » 05 May 2015, 08:56

Marcus Frey, the renowned Swiss large scale builder, has used my drawing of the Ku-7 to create a most unusual model. This was an engineering challenge as the outer wing panel of this glider rotates. For some strange reason he has yet again failed to paint it silver. He did the same with the Austria and the Messerschmitt m23c which also came from my drawing.

Sensible perhaps? Silver aeroplanes and grey skies are not a good combination, believe me!

Vince, what would it take to acquire those 3-views? I'm not much of computer wizard. I'd like to build this for next season! Thanks!

Vincent - my addy is ruralaircraftfactory@yahoo.com . I would like to purchase a nice 18 x 21 or so formatted 3-view so that I can hand enlarge to 1/4 scale. I have a nice drawing board and etc. Do you have fuselage sections of this sailplane? I can figure them out if you don't but a few sections will save some time! Thank you very much, Michael

I sent the details off as a zip. If they don't arrive, check your junk box.

If anyone else would like a go at it, attached is a 1:4 scale drawing of the initial plan from the 3-view

Just as a footnote to this section, the Ku-7 was designed for Robert Kronfeld who flew the glider over Vesuvius in 1933. Photo attached
