    I scratch built this for Tim's (wunwinglow) glider competition. That thread seems to have petered out since the move so I thought I would share here . . .

    Nice !!!! The rib effect on the wings is very convincing, and the presentation is most original - gets my vote (if I have one that is ;) )

    Beautiful! Hopefully this will resurrect the competition! This has to be one of the winners! Not to mention an award for presentation!

    I, er, ah, Vote Quimby! (and another chance to use this icon: :killer: )

    scratch built! holy cow! very nice. You should use this to ressurect the thread though :) there has just been so much going on with the move some of the threads need a kick in the pants :) Also that stand is a superb touch :)

    Thanks to all for the compliments. I had fun building it . . . Next scratch build will be a Chris Craft style runabout (floaty thing)
