  1. Please visit a gallery with finished model
  2. Finished. Finally. It should take me two or three times less time, but... The most important is that I'm quite enjoyed at the end. Enjoy watching. WiP thread is here.
  3. Almost all decals applied Tail on place again Wheel with flaps scratched Two or free decals more, some gloss and wash and finish
  4. Some colors appeared Tail disappeared ...
  5. Looking really good! Thanks for notices - I have it in my stash (but let say - more red one )
  6. Thanks Colleagues for yours comments and memories I'm trying to build gliders but under two conditions: 1st is scale - 1/72 only, 2nd is Polish registration (I mean at least one was registered in Poland). Based on those conditions I can: a) collect up to 10-12 gliders' collection OR b) in the future I will have to scratch some . Going back to Astir. I tried canopy to fuselage... Instrument panel is too big... Unfortunately border around canopy was also too wide (compared to hole in fuselage) so I filled and sanded a bit again... Oh, and canceled backlash
  7. Holes for air brakes drilled During gluing wings I realized that something is wrong... Too much sanding ? Fortunately it was easy to correct Tail was glued without so problems After few layers of Surfacer and some sanding whole thing starts look like glider.
  8. My new project - looking easy to build Grob Astir CS from Kovozávody Prostějov. I've chosen polish markings - SP-3703. Firstly I filled places for bottom air brakes - Grob Astir have only upper! Additionally I cut and shifted ailerons. In second step I glued fuselage halves, cut hole for wheel and add butt floor. Next I modified a seat and instrument panel shape (SP-3703 have different panel than others).
  9. Pete - some time ago I've built Grunau Baby II (not the best model but...) also with similar history. You can see that wing and fuselage have different numbers (both are from different gliders). If I good remember this glider flew in Jezow. White squares covers swastikas; Polish Air Force signs are used because Russians knew it (and didn't shut to planes with it). Rest of colleagues - thank you for nice words
  10. DFS Olympia was a glider projected for Olympics 1940. Unfortunately due to IIWW this type was used rather for training new pilots than for sport competition. After IIWW some of gliders were abandoned by Germans on territory of Poland. 21 of them were restored and used. SP-390 was restored in Gdansk and flew in Malbork. As a basis I used an AZ model kit in 1/72 scale. I've added few parts in cockpit (invisible at the end), aerial brakes and printed own set of decals. Enjoy watching
