    My father, Raul Hrubisko has made two new models in 1/72 scale for our collection. In this case as part of our Glider series.



    He made them from scratch in only 16 days.. I would like to thank to Jed and Alastair for helping us with information and photos.



    Here are the Slingsby T.18 Hengist gliders.

    Beautiful work, and nice to see some of the lesser known subjects being modelled. Will the Hotspur and Hamilcar be following the Horsas and Hengists?

    Hi

    Many thanks for your comments.



    Yes, my father has started 4 Hadrian. Not only the Hotspur and Hamilcar but also the General Aircraft GAL.55, the De Havilland DHA G1 and G2, and if we get the 3 draw views the Hindustan Aircraft G-1.

    Kind regards
    Santiago
