Hi Lee, can you email me a copy of the plans as we seem to have mislaid them!! We don't have a copy of the instrument panel but will be asking the Glider Heritage Club for details of it.

I love the lines of this sailplane and after reading the various write ups on Bill Manuel and his other earlier sailplanes I decided to build the hawk. Hope to have this in the air in June / July.

A couple of weeks ago I posted pics of a little F86 Sabre that I was building. I have had great fun painting it and all that remains is to fit the aileron servos and balance before the first flight.
The colour scheme used is that of a Canadair F86 Sabre Mk4 flown by 3 Squadron RAFG based at Geilenkirchen, Germany in 1954.
I am now thoroughly looking forward to thrashing it back and forward at low level along my local slope in a good breeze.
Brian. :D :D :D

It will be welcome at a PSSA meeting. The scale police are not seen very often at those events!

Started a build on a RES Dart, not a patch on the Wampire above which looks fantastic.
