These early WW2 gliders came two-in-a-box, beautifully moulded although very simple; I think the Polish version with the enclosed cockpit had 11 parts Very Happy The main 'frame' was quite fragile and I snapped one of them early on in the build, but managed to bodge it back together. Trickiest part was masking the ribs which took a long time, but in the end I was quite pleased with the simulation of 'see through' doped linen. Rigged with elastic thread.

Wow. A really unique subject to build. Nice effects with the see through wings. This is 1/72? The rigging is amazing. Did the turn buckles on the cables come with the kit or are they aftermarket?

Cheers Tom. Turnbuckles were aftermarket, hand-made by a guy in the UK trading as 'Bob's Buckles'. Smile They were ridiculously tiny and I think I lost more than I used.

The models themselves are wonderful, Mike. But it is the shading that you applied is what really elevates them to another level. Thanks for including the pic of the masking as that makes you appreciate the build even more.
