DFS Stummel-Habicht replica



What-if somebody built a replica of the airplane that was used to train pilots for the German Me 163 rocket planes. Actually a few somebody's have in Germany - but they have gone for the "regular" version with the 13.60 m (44 ft 7 in) wing. The Stumpy Habicht that was built with 6 and 8 meter wings. This one was built with the 8 meter wing - in a garage in Tampere, Finland - and can be found occupying the towplane pilots at the Teisko airfield (EFTS) during times when the serious pilots are not satisfied with thermal activity.

I wanted to do something for this GB but wasn't happy with anything I started. My modifications were not improvements. So, here's one that is just a little unusual but not at all redesigned.
