PZW models SZD-16-Gil (bullfinch) glider 1/72nd scale

Recommended Posts

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.

Very nice Moa.  I have built a fair number of gliders so if anyone wants to see them I'll post pics when I can next.

Hi Paul

post them as RFIs, one for each subject, in its own thread, so people can refer to them.
