The MDM-1 Fox is a polish,
two-seat aerobatic glider. All aerobatic
figures can be flown with it. A detailled description can be found here:
The D-6669 was built in 2011. Klaus Lenhart (LEKI) supported the aerobatic
club, without his help we wouldn´t have this excellent plane now. Unfortunately he
died in an accident in 2012, that´s why there is the black banner on the vertical stabilizer with the words "In memory Klaus Lenhart" on it.
The basic model is very simple to build, as it has no cockpit. I decided to
make my models without cockpit, because most people who buy them are hobby pilots
and not experienced modellers. My Fox-kit includes decals of the D-6660, which belongs to the same aerobatic club.
The model was painted with brush, the decals I printed on foil from ACT. In
the end I sealed the model with gloss varnish.
