Default Glider Model - Blaue Maus- 1922 Wasserkuppe Glider

1922 Blaue Maus Model (Blue Mouse)
Fiddler's Green specializes in downloadable scale models made from
paper or index cardstock.
On Fridays they issue a new model.
This week's is their first in a series of classic sailplanes.

www.fiddlersgreen.net/

Excerpt:

"1922 Blaue Maus Model (Blue Mouse)
Built by the students and Teacher Wolfgang Klemperer Technical
University of Aachen (Germany) the Blaue Maus training glider for the
first time, utilized fully cantlevered wings (self supporting wings
that did not rely on external struts or bracing). Another distinctive
feature was the forward and massive landing gear struts on which ash
skids were mounted. This beautiful glider smacks of that 1920s big,
bold aeronautical style and is well worth the look.. "

All of their 300+ models can be downloaded and printed out on 8.5 x 11
card stock (aka coverstock) available from any Office Max/Office Depot
etc. store.
Download the pdf file, print, cut out with scissors, glue together in
about an evening - maybe two.

Default Glider Model - Blaue Maus- 1922 Wasserkuppe Glider

Hi,

This week's is their first in a series of classic sailplanes.


I have designed card models of a few more modern gliders:

http://www.marian-aldenhoevel.de/
(In german. Click the links with the familiar names and
then the PDF-Link at the bottom. Instructions are currently
only available in german, too)

The kit for the Duo Discus includes only the parts that are different between
D-KBPP and D-2925. You need to download and print Jan Müller's D-KBPP for a
complete model.

I have the models suspended from the ceiling where they thermal slowly in
any draft. Most distracting.

Ciao, MM

Marian,
I've seen the Duo Discus, Swift, and Slingsby sailplane model on Jan
Müller's site,
but I had no idea that anyone had done the ASK-13, ASK-21, ASW-24 and
LS4.

These are all outstanding models!
More than one night's work, but beautiful when complete.
(Wie sagt mann "Pfundig!" auf English?)

Thanks for sharing the link.
