Quick build - 1/48 Ardpol Foka 5 sailplane
Posted by kensar on Sunday, July 28, 2019 7:53 AM

Continuing my sailplane collection - a 1/48 Ardpol SZD-32 Foka 5 sailplane.  Built in the early 1960's primarily of plywood.

 

Painted and decaled.

Adding cockpit details.


 

The pilot sits on it rather than in it.

Hi;

 That seems to be the case with a lot of them .I learned on a very early Sweitzer Sailplane in the sixties .I was afraid I was going to put a foot through it !
