These posters look great on your wall at home, at work, or at the local
gliderport. They also make great gifts.
Posters are difficult to ship. I take every precaution I can think of
to insure that they arrive in perfect condition. I ship them using
heavy-duty cardboard shipping tubes and store them here in large diameter
cardboard tubes. However, it is impossible to completely protect the
edges of the poster from damage in shipment. You can expect the edges
of the posters to have some very minor creases and even vary small tears.
That is normal and unavoidable. It is due to the fact that the posters
slide inside the tube while in transit. It really is not a problem if
you plan to have the posters mounted and/or framed. A little trimming
will make them as good as new.
Soaring Photo Calendars - Also a great
Another great source of large,
colorful soaring photos are current and out-of-date wall calendars.
Some offer very large, high quality photos - and you get 12 or 13 of them at
a low price when you buy an out-of-date calendar! Below are a few
examples. You can see details here: Calendars

||Poster - "Milestones of
US Sailplane Design"
By Martin Simons
poster includes top view drawings of 32 sailplanes from the United
States - each selected for their unique contribution to the evolution of
sailplane design in the U.S. It is a virtual journey through time.
The journey begins near the top of the poster with the 1933 Bowlus
Albatross and ends at the bottom with the 1994 Genesis.
It is a poster that will be appreciated
by enthusiasts of both full-size and scale model sailplanes. It is
intriguing to look at how sailplane designs have changed over the years.
Yet every single one of the designs is lovely in its own way.
The poster was created by Martin Simons
using artwork from his 3 wonderfully interesting "Sailplanes" books - as
found in the links below. Each of the sailplanes on the poster is
described in detail in one of the books.
Width: 23.5 inches (59.7 cm)
Height: 33.1 inches (84.1 cm)
Note: The photos on this site give the
impression that the poster is a bit brown in color and not evenly
colored. The brown tint is a result of the lighting when the
poster was photographed. It is just slightly off-white in color.
