    Many years ago, building gliders (from scratch and of my design, no kits...) was my favourite hobby

    The name of the model derives from a very salty Sardinian phrase that went out of my lips when the timing device did not function properly..... but as inthis Forum I think that the connoisseurs of the Sardinian language are not many, I think I'm well inside the "Politically correct".....

    These photos were taken on the bed of a dried salt lake, unfortunately not as big as the American ones, like Davis-Monthan or Edwards....

    Great stuff Elmas!

    Hmm, 'dugo'... a dugó in Hungarian is a plug. 'Dugni' means 'plugging', which is also a slang name for another activity... :)
