I know this may not go over with a lot of newer people to soaring, i.e. more recently than the 1960s, but there are still quite a few 2-33s being used for training. It would be nice to have a model in Condor that approximated it's handling qualities, cockpit layout, sight picture, etc.


I second this suggestion most vigorously!

Condor 2 is a big improvment over the already good Condor1 and the fleet is growing nicelly good matches for almost all categories except Club Class and Open Class.

I think you should prioritize some Club Class to fly against the Standard Cirrus ASW-19 is my favorite but LS-1 or Libelle might be a more balanced aproach.


We agree. EB29R will be along this winter, and I'm just about to get club class started. ASW19 and 20 will be first

Let me get the 1-26 out first, then we will consider the 2-33.

There were ~50% more standard Libelles built (601) than ASW-19 (425) so maybe that should be on the list after the 20. Just sayin...

Come one they need to sale their Add on Gliders and ASW-19/-20 are just the sexiest fusealage look ever built till the Js3
I don't think that 2-33 models will sale much

I'm desparate to get the Libelle done too, but there are only so many hours in a day. It will come, probably in 2019.

How about an aircraft builders toolkit like the scenery builders toolkit. The numbers of hours in a day would increase exponentially.

In any case, I appreciate the effort you and your team put into this!

It's not required. All thats needed is a 3d modelling program and skill to make the model.

You can do this with free programs. Wings3d is easy, Blender good too.
