DFS Weihe

The DSF Weihe is a vintage model with its own special charm. Commissioner Chance gave us a construction plan of the 50 series from Graupner, with a wingspan of 1,80 metres. The small model was quickly rebuilt - and we liked it! 
We initially decided to build a 1: 5.5 scale replica with a wingspan of 3,27 metres.


The Weihe of Hans Jacobs was probably one of the most successful glider models with high performance. The prototype was developed in 1938. Hans Jacobs learned to build gliders through Alexander Lippisch, who built many models in the 1920s, such as the Fafnir and Fafnir 2. The development of the DSF Weihe started in 1938 and finally ended in 1959.
