I have always been fascinated by airplanes. Of course, the fact that my father built and flew model aircraft contributed to this fascina- tion. A book that my father owned, “Great Planes” by James Gilbert, included a photograph of two Zlfn Z-526s flying in close mirror forma- tion. From the first moment I saw this picture, I was captivated, and this older type of Zlin still ranks among my most favorite aircraft. In 1993,1 found the address of the Otrokovice Zlin factory in the Czech Republic. I wrote to the company and acquired a very detailed drawing and many pictures of the 526 types. I decided to construct the 526 AS and made several visits to the factory for valuable scale documentation.
