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.

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...

Interested to see where you are going with this Chris - will it be a lightweight version like the Minimoa? I have the 1/4 scale plans and it's on my 'to-do-in-the-future' list. Assume you will be changing the wing section as well?? Will there be a build log?

Given the sprightliness of the 5th scale Wolf, I'm sticking with my favourite section. What seems to work well at the moment is a heavy fuselage and lightweight wings! I'm hoping for a big improvement on the 30 odd years old plan! ;)
