Awesome model : SG-38 @ IGG Torbacka event

Once in a while you see something which deserves an separate entry into this blog. This time it is SG-38 which is owned by G.A. He is well known IGG colleague here. I have understood that this model was originally built by Estonian modeller and then sold to G.A., who then made some restoration, including new covering and rigging. This is truly awesome model and the pics below will tell everything. I have to admit that I got carried away with these pics, but…

IGG Torbacka, third day 3.5.2015

And then to second day of IGG Torbacka Aerotow-event. Due other arrangements I arrived late and did not manage to set up my Harakka. But still I managed to get some pics. Weather was mixed, not so windy as first day, but rain caused some headaches. Actually, there were constant threat of rain as rain was circling around us.

Also present was pea-soup cannon.

Official season start IGG Torbacka @ 1.5.2015

Oh well! Season has started. This was the first official IGG Finland gathering. Event took place at Torbacka. There were some challenges, like wind, wind chill and water. But company, food & spirit (not meaning things to drink) was great. I managed limited flying with Harakka II, one flight with plane creeping backwards most of flying time.

But still, this was rather enjoyable as most of folks met again since last summer. So it was nice to see familiar faces. Great, but I hope that we will get better weather next time.
