Plan - 1230 Eon Olympia
Brand Kiona Publishing, Inc.
The full-scale Eon Olympia was a glider produced from 1947 by Elliotts of Newbury. The Olympia glider plan is 1/3-scale size. It is designed after a single-place full-scale glider, a glider that had been developed in pre-war Germany as the DFS Olympia Meise. It was designed by Hans Jacobs and selected as the glider for the 1940 Summer Olympics. The model has a wingspan of 185 inches when finished. It is a built-up balsa, plywood and spruce model, with miscellaneous hardware required.
