Default Primary Gliders / SchulgLeiter

Been having an interest in an R/c version of one of these for quite some time. Looking at maybe a 10 foot or so. Strickly scale job. Saw one at the Warbirds museum in Denver. Pretty Cool. I also Really like the SchulgLeiter 38 as well.
I have the La Ferte 2003 DVD with one in the video.

Found a link from a guy in turkey who built a primary but used Foam core. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=996156

Cool glider but dont want foam. Ever look at a scale glider from Underneath as it was flying over and see all the ribs through the Cloth covering. Its gorgeous.

I was wanting this design only with the Pod Cockpit version??? Thought it was the SchulgLeiter 38, Not the Primary GLider but all references I see show the Picture I attached as the SchulgLeiter 38.

Any Ideas. Looking for maybe a year or so project. Cut my own Ribs etc. Might have to go Light ply on the ribs but I have a cool set of screwdrivers, I can make anything...

This Too, Make note at 5:27 Mark in the Vid. Warning - Bad end to the video though. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sd-2R...x=0&playnext=1

And 1 Last one - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2e7t...eature=related

Heck I should Just build a full size one....

you can download plans for one that looks almost identical to the one in your picture from Vintage Sailplaner. I just finished rebuilding their site and it should be on-line by the end of the week.

Http://www.vintagesailplaner.com

Jim offers the plans for FREE!!! He has several vintage sailplane plan sets in PDF format. All you have to do is take them to Kinkos or Office Depot and have them print them out for you.

The picture is one of the model that's close to the one in your picture.

If you want a version with a pilot "pod" check out the Manuel Condor plans on Vintage Sailplaner. Again they're free. Three sheets so be sure you DL all of them.

I have the Krick-kit of the SG-38. Not the best kit I have had, the die-cut parts are not always fully cut. But the parts fit together. Some work, but I hope it end as a nice flying bird!
The version with "cockpit" is called Hols der Teufel, but might not be spelled correct by me

I just bought the SG 38 from roedelmodell. It's really tiny (1/10, wingspan 40") but a nice cnc kit.

Edit: here is a picture of the kit:
