We've been putting it together in the Newent Model Club room, and as we only meet there two evenings a week in the winter and one in the summer progress has been far from rapid. However we have now reached a milestone, the first assembly of the major elements of the airframe.
We chose the Pik-5 because as many of you will know we like model gliders that are a bit unusual and that we have not seen modelled or at least modelled widely before and that can be a bit problematical from a construction standpoint. We like a challenge!
So here are a few photo's. The wings are near complete, birch veneer over balsa, and yes there is a fair amount of structural wire to keep that fuz straight!
