Another glider also from about a year ago. Second of the four vintage kits of Polish gliders of the fifties that I purchased at Palm Springs desert is the "Gil" (bullfinch). The first one, The Bocian, is posted here: As with the Bocian, I started by gathering references, of which I found a decent number in Polish websites to cover for details like the instrument panel and such. The same sort of naive box illustration is present, as well as decals, a very nice transparent canopy and the reasonably-sized instruction drawings and the -seemingly customary for the manufacturer- display pedestal. The kit has seen a couple of re-boxings with new graphics.
