and in a special way by simplicity of

I started making my own variation of simple glider, due to the some old cardboard and other home waste.

Step 1: SCF-1, Wings

From the rich choice of waste (ha,ha!) I took the biggest piece of cardboard, found the middle of it and bend it over that line. Then holding it  such banded I cut out desired shape of wing.
After that, I glued some cardboard layers that were glued off by time; practically I repaired the cardboard. Clothe pegs pressed layers sufficiently, during the drying.

Step 2: SCF-1, Fuselage

I took another big piece of cardboard and, this time using scissors tip, I scratched a line longitudinally. Then banded a piece over it, getting a triangle profiled fuselage. Again I cut out desired shape - I left nose as it is but towards the tail I cut a fine slope. Than using cardboard again I made two triangles and glued them inside. Fine triangular profiled fuselage!

Step 3: SCF-1, Vertical stabilizer

From one smaller piece of cardboard I cut the vertical stabilizer, it's attacking edge curved and rear edge strait. Then, I simply put some glue on the tail part of fuselage, inserted vertical stabilizer in, and fixed all with a cloth pegs.

Step 4: SCF-1, Wing montage

I simply put some glue on the fuselage where I wanted wing to be, positioned wing, press it, hold it so one minute and left it to dry. After I added more glue and finalized it.

I agree with OrigamiAirEnforcer regarding intro photo.

Again, please put a video. A model can be beautiful but fly very bad, and vice versa.

Again absolutely wright! As soon as I find time I'll go out and make and record first flying tests.
You may want to use the image of the finished project on the intro page. (It displays in the "Related" and category pages the airplane that potential viewers would be making).

Anyway, it looks very interesting. I will try to make one sometime. :)

You are absolutely wright OrigamiAirEnforcer , I will do that. I am not used well to ways here.
