Sailplanes available?

Dear members,
I need your help.
I want to have a list of all the sailplanes and sport gliders available as paper models , free or not.
I still have a good idea of what is available (GPM , Fiddlersgreen ,JM and Marian free models...)
But it will be interesting to have your suggestions.
Thank you.

Vintage glider INKA

Here's a real rare & vintage one: "Vintage sailplane INKA" - scroll down, until you get to it.

Sailplanes available?-scan0006.jpg

This is a very simple paper model by Mitja Sersen Erman of a Slovenian v intage glider from 1937-38, a much simplied version of the Grunau Baby.

The glider was used for slope-soaring in the Bloke mountain area of Slovenia up to the outbreak of WWII. The starting method was the common one of the era, several club members tensioning two strands of thick bungee cords, while others held the glider back until no more tension could be achieved, and then let go while those stretching the cords continued to run. The glider was hauled back to its starting point by attaching a couple of barrow wheels to the landing skid.

The scale of the downloaded model seems to be close to 1/10 as far as I can ascertain. I have been playing with this generous free download as an exercise in texturizing a model which is supposed to model a wooden framework aircraft, covered with fabric.

Here's an example of what the reworked model looks like in 1/16 scale (although the scale is off in this illustration):

And here's an example of what the texturizing job looks like:

Almost done with the job I let it slip. But this reminder hopefully should make me finish the job. It will be a free download, with Mitja's kind permission.

Leif

Dear Leif,
I knew this model but as usual you have made a wonderful job on it and it will be a real pleasure to get such a beautiful model.
Thank you very much.

Fauvel AV36

Jan, then I'm sure you're aware of the Fauvel AV36 tailless glider as well, by Philippe Rennesson ("Criquet" on this site). The original free download is here.

There is a reworked version in 1/16 & 1/33 scale available in the downloads section. This is reworked and wood texturized. Available here and here.

I mention this, just because there's been such an influx of new members. Incidentally, it would be a very valuable service if you could publish your list of gliders available as paper models, from the SG-38, over the Waco and Hadrian military gliders, to the modern glass fiber ones. Ideally with links of course although that would be a little bit of a chore. Perhaps we could make a more or less complete inventory that way, which could be added to by members.

Marek has one experimental glider model, available at Edardmodels. Also, DGA has models of the Fourneir powered sailplane and the Sandlin Goat, both available in multiple versions.

Thanks Jan, for a beginning of a list.

Just let me correct a faulty figure about the Inka II glider. The original scale of the download seems to be 1/25 and nothing else.

Apologies - L.

And thanks again, Jan, for prodding me into finishing those small details which were all that was left to do for the Inka glider recoloring. See this thread: "Inka II Slovenian 1937-38 vintage glider".

Amazing how you can stop at 99,9 percent of the job finished. Must have a real fear of finishing anything...

Leif
