Hamilcar Glider

Got home this evening and a nice big package was waiting for me from Sanger UK - a vacformed Hamilcar glider


It was nicely wrapped in quite a bit of bubblewarp and thankfully Royal Mail / Australia Post had treated it with due care.

Inside was a large vacformed sheet - must be almost 50cm wingspan.



With various metal parts - axle, wheels, tail wheel and skids.  There is also a clear plastic canopy taped under the vacform.


Some decals that look pretty good.


and an instruction sheet


Never made a vacformed kit before - so looking forward to the challenge.  Also think it will take a bit of modelling as various openings for the clear pieces need to be located and cleanly cut.

Will post photos as I build.

  1. good luck Richard,

    take your time with it, make sure pieces match before gluing and use superglue tacking before sealing with plastic cement, looking forward to the completed model.

    cheers
