DFS230 Gliders- 1/72

I’ve just finished this pair of Assault Gliders:


They were laser cut from wood by a friend of mine with access to such equipment. The tail plane looks a bit crude as they were added by me from Balsa wood. The decals were bought from Hannants and were added after I gave them a generic paint job.

Next thing is to come up with a suitable scenario for them- either an Eben Emael one or possibly the raid on Tito….

  1. These look very effective. Being mdf they might even fly….

      Thanks Tim- though I have my eye on a box of polystyrene gliders to determine where they deploy on the table… I must have been on of the few youngster who never tried throwing his airfix kits out the window….

    I’m shocked Pete,

    Please tell me that you at least threw your Action Man out of the window with a red spotted hankie for a parachute? The gliders are excellent.

    Regards, Chris.
