The 86″ span Giant Zlin was from the Pat French Models kit from the 1970s.
I obtained this as a part built model from a ex-member of the Loughborough MFC. I decided it would look good in Red Bull livery and to that end purchased a professional quality vinyl cutter – I must say I’m very pleased with the results. It came fitted with a Veco 61 engine with in-cowl silencer.

Having spent 3 years completing a glider from plans and a wood pack with laser cut ribs etc.
As you can see, it was in the garden currently awaiting its first flight for obvious reasons.
It is a 100″ electric soarer in the form of a built-up construction and it was a plan feature in the September 2009 Radio Control Model World magazine in the UK. The model was designed and developed by Brian Austin.
The plan number is MW3398 and the Laser cut wood pack is WP3398, available from Traplet publications Ltd.
Hope you like it and see it flying at Packington in days to come!
