A new West German company, Fisher, has issued a neat little model to 1/87th scale of the Ka-10 sailplane. This is accurate and extremely well made, and it can be assembled literally in two minutes.It forms part of a set which comprises a VW Karman Ghia coupé , a trailer for the ailplane (the wings of which are detachable to alow loading) and a hangar. By the use of all these items an attractive gliding scene may be assembled. A similar set comprising a Boelkow Phoebus sailplane, a Boelkow Junior tug, a winch, windsock and six figures will be issued shortly.
