I was able to snag these the other day, a nice full-size wing at just over 3" wide.  Curious if Blackinton and Lampl were the only manufacturers who did the applied letters for their alphabet wings.

Ha, so you're the extremely lucky guy who got that one! The Gemsco are also applied.

Very nice to see the L wing by Blackinton Marty, first time I've seen one.

Always, one of the sharpest and highest quality markers.

I have the S wing, so it would be interesting to see if someone has the G wing.

There is a Blackinton 3" Glider wing on Bob's site listed as being part of the David Selditz collection.  It is not listed as being a 3" but you can tell it is in the view of its back.
