This L-5 model was designed by Roman Vasilyev of Kampfflieger Models for Lbirds.com's original card model contest. The initial version of the kit was available from him for free for anyone who posts a link on their website or blog and emails him with the information.
The kit is in PDF form which you print out on cardstock. The materials required include a sharp Xacto style knife, a ruler, glue, and some wire such as a medium or large paper clip.
The kit goes together in traditional cardmodel fashion. It does not currently have an interior or moving control surfaces.
The model is marked for a European L-5 that appears in the documentary L-Bird The Little Plane That Did.
The same basic kit has been updated, made more accurate, and is now available through Lbirds.com under our store. We have updated the graphics and panel lines to match information provided by Sentinel Owner's and Pilot's Association's James Gray. We also have available the ambulance version of the L-5.
