Unknown Gliders - Anyone know what they are please?

I've obtained a couple of gliders and I'm trying to find out the manufacturer and model.   Both have extensive carbon construction.

The first one is a 1.5 mtr DLG with ailerons and an offset wing.  It has a slip on nose and closed loop rudder and elevator.

The second is a 2.5m pod and boom, rudder/elevator, thermal soarer with a 3-piece wing.  The wing has square carbon joiners and a full width spoiler in the centre section.

Anyone recognise them?

I think the DLG with the two-piece wing was a model produced by Victor Isaenko in Kharkov, Ukraine and imported by South Coast Sailplanes.  I had one of Victor's catalogues that he gave me in Odessa at a Free-Flight Euro Champs in 2006 but I just spent a fruitless hour looking for it.....

The back end of the second one reminds me of a Blaster Mk 1 so I wonder if it's a Vladimir's model’s design?

Cheers re the DLG, I'll do some research on that.

A friend has told me that the 2.5mtr is a Skip Miller Topaz, which seem to be correct.  Anyone else confirm that?
