Smiley I had one that my Dad gave me years ago.  Had a "message" on the back side - something like, "I'm not as good as I once was, but as good, once, as I ever was".

You're in much better shape than I am....that would kill me right now.  I know I need to exercise more but towline would be too much for me now!!!  Best of luck with them, they look great!

A1 and A2 towliners.  I wouldn't try to launch these off a Hi-start as once you let go of it, there's NO chance for correction.  With a running tow, one can "stop running" to let the model release - and it's good exercise Roll Eyes.

Here are a couple of old timer gliders that I got today from Ronald Borg from Sweden Smiley.

The first pic is the BG-44 by Bora-Gunic which won the 1952 WC in Graz (A2 class).  Wingspan is 1668mm

Second is the UPPÅT, an old Swedish design by Rob. Lőwen-Åberg - not sure of the date.  Span 1500mm (A1 class)
