    Perusing the GPM site, I came upon something I've never seen - a fully detailed sailplane, without covering, and every rib modeled. I think this is a must see:

    There are more picture on the site. The manufacturer is stated as DRAF MODEL, which I haven't found on the web. Anybody know anything about this model?

    The span is stated as 150 cm (I think they got the "length" and "span" measures mixed up at GPM), which would make it roughly 1/8 or, at the very least, 1/10 scale! This is an awesome model, at an equally awesome price, 42 euros+.

    But it sure looks impressive, and I would like to get a closer look at how they've designed those ribs...

    From the brown edging to the parts, I wonder if this is laser cut? Splendid model though, thanks Leif for the heads-up!
