Reichard Models Laminar XLF-207 4.4M
The Reichard 4.4M Laminar is a beautiful model of a very special full size machine.
The Letov XLF-207 Laminar, is a derivative of the equally gorgeous LF-107 Luňák and holds the distinction of being the first glider in the world to have a laminar flow wing. In fact research into laminar flow wings was carried out by the XLF-207 Laminar, and to all intents and purposes it was really an LF-107 simply fitted with laminar flow wings.
New wings were "sandwiched" onto the hull of the second prototype machine and the maiden flight took place in Praha Letnany in August 1951
In Laminar's first competitive event, the pilot won gold, in addition to first and three diamonds.
The model is manufactured and supplied in the original blue color which, with the unusual wing shape and sleek aerodynamic lines, makes it a real head-turner at the field.
