I believe that some years ago a 1:35 Allied glider was produced. I'm looking for one that would have been used by Allied troops during Op Market Garden, in 35 or 32. Does one exist?

Great North Roads have done a 1/35th resin Horsa, allegedly all of it, but I have seen the tail section in a dio on their GNR stand at several shows, and is on their website homepage.

Miniart had a 1/35th Horsa 'in development' for several years but this has been pulled from the website, (their C47 dissapeard ages ago as well)

A polish company (GPM) has a 1/33 paper Horsa & a US Waco glider, which could make a good model. In the stash, but talent not included. A Horsa sold recently on ebay for about 15.00

Fonderies Minitures have a Horsa in 1/48th, plastic similar in consistency to errr french cheese, has almost flown in the bin several times but I'm not going to be beat by the darn frogs!

There are also offerings by Sanger, Horsa & Waco in 1/48th & a Hamilcar in 1/72.

Italeri/Airfix do a bunch in 1/72nd.

There may be a balsa kit from the flying plane bunch, let me know if you find one!
Good Luck
