Welcome to a work in progress

This blog is dedicated to the restoration and modification of a Glasfl├╝gel Standard Libelle H201B, and a tribute to those who have dared to do the same, and to those who are helping with seeing this dream take flight.

The week to finish the painting

This is the WEEK!... We are finally able to paint!!!!. OMG after 4 years the glider is white again!

Photos to follow!

I will update this post at the end of the week, I took this week off from work to get this plane done.

As it goes, we just finished painting the wings. They are awesome! All that is left to paint is the fuselage, canopy, ailerons, and rudder!.


Mid-week update

I was told that the blue markings that were originally planned, cannot be used due to the fact that they are a violation of the Type Certification of the glider. There was even a question on whether or not I could use the blue on the registration and competition letters.
