A KP Blanik, a nice kit
Good to know, I did zero research before purchasing.  :thumbsup:

I know, it provided me with three firsts, first fixed wing other than airliner I rode in, first aircraft I got to control and first glider.  :mellow:

But as per usual things start to go well so I do one thing positive for myself and the universe steps in and turn's life to crap leaving me not caring about models yet again and questioning why I keep trying to even think about having a hobby  :banghead:

Yeah, life has a habit of doing that.  But sometimes you catch a break.

Magic stuff!  :thumbsup:

Did your instructor tell you 'If it doesn't CLANG when you land it, you're not putting it down firmly enough.' ?  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

It was 30 years ago, I'm not great at recalling what was said to me 30 minutes ago!

But it's possible he said something to that effect with the Blanik being the only metal glider in their small fleet...  ;D

In the late 1970's I got quite a few hours up in a Blanik at the Millicent Gliding Club.

Unlogged, unfortunately, as there was some kind of issue with sourcing pilot's log books at the time (over a period of almost 12 months). By the time they got their log book order I had left school & joined the RAN.

Cool :thumbsup:

I've been meaning to visit the Millicent gliding club on a day they are operating ever since moving to the SE, so for about 12 years now... :rolleyes:

Closest I have got so far is when I was filling and fueling Ag planes when they were using their strip, of course there was nobody from the club there on those days...  :banghead:

Blanik kit has arrived, as badly as I want to open it up and look in the box though just like the Pawnee and other recent kit's I'm leaving it in the plastic wrap so it has some resale value if it comes to that...

Last night I saw on eBay a KP XFY-1 Pogo listed as complete, as the Pogo is one of my all time favorite aircraft I brought it, I went through the listing pic's again afterwards and I cannot see the canopy anywhere  :banghead:

Hopefully it was just left out of the pic's or is hidden behind something, otherwise...  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Especially as a factory sealed kit became available a few hours after purchasing it! :angry:

I've put an offer in on the factory sealed kit also. :rolleyes:

You can never have too many Pogos, they're perfect Whiff fodder.  :thumbsup: ;) ;D

Seems to have worked ;)

Offer was accepted on the sealed kit so I will have at least one with a canopy turning up, I'll figure something out for the first one if it is indeed missing.  :thumbsup:
