Hi Folks! This is going to be my first build here so be gentle! After purchasing the excellent book 'Italian Vintage Sailplanes' by Vincenzo Pedrielli with illustrations by Francesco Camastra I decided to drop contemplating other projects to build this one. I sure think it's pretty! It has what I like in a 'vintage' sailplane: plywood and fabric, gull wings, skid and struts. Plus, I can build two different rudders and cockpit enclosures to represent the sailplane in its two configurations. It has a nice aspect ratio so should actually be a 'performer' unlike my poor little Prufling which was a 'glider'. I don't know how to post photos with text after so here are a few photos of the book and sailplane. I started drawing the plans this past weekend. It'll have 118." span. That's plenty big for me.
