Hi!!  Does anyone have the build instructions for the Mike Trew  ASK 18 at 1/5 scale? I would be happy to pay for copying/postage etc,.

In hope !

Is this from a plan only (I wasn't aware of any Mike Trew plans being kitted), if so you'd need to find out which magazine published it and see if you can track down a back copy.

We built the Mike Trew 1/5th scale T-21 last year from the plan and this detailed enough not to need any additional instructions.

Scalesoaring.co.uk is where a lot of the scale glider builders hang out, so you may want to ask on there too.

I will be getting my plan copied in the next few days. I can let you have price if you wish. Alternatively you could do a plan swop with Derick at Model Plans which is how I got mine!!

Actually there is probably enough on the plan to build it. Article would make interesting reading. No indication on the plan of its source. I will see if I can trace a magazine though it may not even be a Mike Trew plan. I will try scale soaring as you suggest. Many thanks
