2 years on - and just 2x flying sessions done - time to finally get some colour on it !

Something plausibly scale whilst also aiding visibility / orientation

and - finally added the nose tow release mechanism - very simple small-hole-with-wire-across

and - the first aerotow for it yesterday at the Devon Glider day - great fun seeing it flying high over a flat-field.  The release worked great - especially on an emergency when things didn't go quite right - lesson learned - don't use a take-off dolly with a low set tail - wing lifted off the dolly but not enough & the dolly wing uprights got tangled in the tail - not good but minimal tail damage.

Phil.
