Avialsa A-60 Fauconnet 1:33

Hello.
At the urging of Krzychu74, I tried to design something other than houses. As a child, I was often with my dad at the Aero Club near where I live. There I admired the gliders taking off and landing.

My choice fell on the French glider Avialsa A-60 Fauconnet (licensed Scheibe L-Spatz 55). Model will in 1:33 scale.

You can read more about this glider here:
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avialsa_A60_Fauconnet

Best regards.

Sailplanes-rare topic in paper.

If I could ask for more I would look into military gliders,both trainers and combat models.

I don't think there were any Soviet or Japanese military gliders in paper yet.

I am looking forward to see this.

Gliders and especially Military Gliders are also one of my (too many?) interests. I am aware of a couple of Soviet era models.
The first is the Dragos 1-100 scale model of the Yak-14 'Mare', which I believe was published on the Rumanian Forum (PaperModel.ro). It was operated post-war and was quite a brute with a 26+ meter wingspan.
Then the magazine Levsha has published a 1/50 scale model of the Gribovski G-11 in its 2000-09 issue. It was used during World War II.

Hello.
Thank you very much for your kind words and comments. As for military gliders, I have to think about it. I am more interested in civil gliders. However, I do not reject the possibility of designing also military gliders. I will see what interest will be in the topic of gliders.

The test gluing started. Test model by Andrzej Ciepłuch.

Best regards.
