Gliders! You remember the old foam gliders from the 80s that would get destroyed fairly easy! I had these and like many I flew them as soon as I got home from the store. Mine crashed into the house, hit trees, landed on the roof, and any number of hard landings. I still have both but they are damaged.
This project started out as an idea to remake those gliders out of foam. I went as far as figuring out the materials to use, but I was up against a wall on how to get them in colors. It was a few different things holding me back from making the foam ones a reality. That's when fellow collectors and friends asked if they could actually be display items and not foam.
