1/48 AZ model L-13 Blanik
Another recently completed model. My Admiral 1/48 L-13 Blanik glider model.
I had to make the rear thin line decals as the kit ones just broke apart. The ones on the wings are painted on.
The kit wingspan is 33.5cm.
I have done the scheme as the black striped scheme callsign 01 that I can remember the Midlands Gliding Club, Gwelo/Gweru, Rhodesia/Zimbabwe had back in 1981/82.
It was in this glider that I flew as a passenger for my last ever glider flight.
This was a very basic kit and went together easily. You have a choice of markings for 4 different gliders but be aware that the thinner decals tend to just curl up or crumble.
Paint used was Halfords Grey Primer and the Honda Blade silver. Both in spray cans and are actual car paints.
