Makes me laugh when people say that there are parts of the model that are not to scale and then go and put a motor in it! how is that scale (on most gliders)

I have followed the development of all Jilles designs and a lot of behind the scenes research is always carried out, quite often contradicting established 3-view drawings. Any 'errors' can always be corrected by customer feedback. I quite agree with the comment above about the motor and look forward to the completion of the model to check it out for scale compliance, such as colour scheme and registration from a host of photos I have

I like the design of the Ikarus Meteor over all/"in it's entirety" and want have a flying/flyable model of it. I'm not interessted in a scale-modell and I never sayed so.

However, I appreciate it much that Jilles is reading and writing here. I aggree with you Jilles that for good flying models are some "corrections" are necessary compared to the original. In case of the Meteor are some changes which are not necessary but drawn. Three (even at pictures obviously) examples: original - the flaps at the wing are hinched at the top, plan - centre hinched, original - the "wingends" are oval and quiet large/high with "timber rail", plan - round, shorter, without rail, original - elevator is one part , plan - two pieces
Again and please don't get me wrong: thats fine with me and I've done for me some changes.

@vinceC: in case of the motor - like you see it at the three pictures it ready to fly. In case of the colour scheme - I don't want to go scale. The model get the registraion YU-4103, the flag at the ruder and the red "Meteor 57" lettering with the red stripes. Thats it. I know there're many diffrent designs over the years to the one flying original.

and if Cliff is laughing or not isn't important about the model, so keep laughing
