2 x Revell's 1/32 scale
LS-8 Gliders

LS-8 Glider

 


Revell's 1/32 scale LS-8 will be available from Squadron.com

 

Description

 

I am back again with another prototype model from Revell, this time the 1/32 scale ASK-21 Glider.

When I build a white aircraft model, I often used the Basic-Color from Revell, because it does not yellow over time as many white colours tend to. It retains its pure white finish even ten years into the future! But you must sand and polish, sand and polish...

I built two of these brand new models.

 

 

The aircraft-number D-2239 TW is a LS-8-18, which has a span of 18 meters.

The other one is the 15 meter version (Standard-Class), but I have given it fictional markings (D-6215 Old Playboy Bunny).

 

 

The Ka-6CR in the background on one photo was "my" plane in our club in Lemwerder/Germany during the 1960s. I could not resist borrowing the old number and the Playboy logo...

I fitted a small brass tube between the wings across the fuselage to improve strength. This also meant that I did not have to glue the wings to the fuselage.

 

 

The models fitted together perfectly and the cockpit includes many nice details.

Let's all hope that we see a tow plane in 1/32 scale too! (I'll vote for a Piper Warrior myself - ed.)
