Once upon a time, a long long time ago I read through an American modelling book from the 1960's. Most of the book was controline planes with big engines, some RC, but there was also a Nordic glider that I liked. It had, from hazy memory, a gull dihedral in the centre and polyhedral at the tips. I also seem to recall a slight V to the stab and a curved fuselage. I don't think is was necessarily a great model, but I'd love to find it again just to satisfy my curiosity - does it ring a bell with anyone?

I have an old glider plan in an old magazine (Air Trails?) of the "Grasshopper".  I don't know if it's considered a Nordic glider, but it has a gull wing. And a big streamlined fuselage. Huh
I'll look it up when I get home from work.

Thank you for replying, though those are not the glider I was thinking of. I cannot explain why it is stuck in my mind, but it's an itch I need to scratch for some reason! I will keep looking.

I think Goslings Nordic Tern may tick a few boxes?

Sounds like a George Perryman design to me.
