Peters Astir CS

Peter demonstrating the rudder fit

At this stage the aircraft has a coat of spray filler on and is awaitng its 2k coats of final finish white.

The red trim and logos will be added as per the full size.

Like a kid with a new toy,
Peters new Astir is taking shape and being finished for the Sungazer Scale Slope fly-in.
I visited Peter and took a few spy photos, I must say Peter is a craftsman and finishes off his aircraft with great care and attention to details . This baby is just under 6 mtr and feels nice and light , should be a .great soarer.

This glider(full size) is manufactured by Grob but is a different model to the Speed Astir tha Charl has built, it has a distinctive wing planform.

I am sure it will look great in the air-currents above the Drakenberg mountain foothills at Volksrust.
