Great old school building. Man, we sire don't see that around anymore! same kind of way I started-push pins, xacto knives, waiting on glue to set and tons and tons of sawdust.

Keep it up, bud. looks great

The design looks fantastic.

And just as much as this is a chance to enjoy the actual design I have to commend you on the detailed building pictures. This thread could easily be used as a great example of how to construct a balsa model of similar structure for a glider as well as a power model. The use of jigs and tabs in the construction being so general.

Finishing details:










Final weight:


Nose lead weight added!


But the wing loading is 17 gr./dm2, very low for this kind of glider and construction method.
