1/72 KP FVA 10b Rheinland (Šídlo)

Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on Aug 18 2020



Here is my FVA-10b Rheinland from KP in 1/72. The glider was developed by the Flugwissenschaftliche Vereinigung Aachen (FVA; Flight Research Association Aachen) in Germany as a high performance glider. Maiden flight was in 1937, wingspan was 16 m.  29 of those gliders were produced and also flown outside Germany.

KP offers the kit (from 2019) of the FVA-10b in 2 versions (with German and Czech registrations). I chose the Czech paint scheme (#KPM0154), because I like the yellow painting and the blue nose. 

It´s a nice kit with very accurate details on the surface. I added some levers inside the cockpit, the venturi tube and the linkages on the tailplane. The model was painted with brush and enamels from Revell. It was built within a few days. 

I´m happy to have this elegant looking glider in my collection. 

Greetings from Germany
