• Pair of Model Wooden Gliders

    Two finely carved, laminated wooden models of gliders from one of the German airfields such as Oerlinghausen or Scharfoldendorf. The larger model is mounted on a Perspex stand that sits on a wooden base and the smaller one is mounted on an all wood stand and base. The smaller model also has a perspex windshield. These models were given as prizes in post WWII gilding competitions staged at the airfields by British Royal Air Force (RAF) Gliding Associations (made up from service personnel stationed throughout Western Germany). The models are of two German 1930's designed sailplane gliders, such as a DFS Kranich and Schleicher Condor.
