## Main Question or Discussion Point

hello.

the question is: if i have an exact model (and i mean EXACT) of, say, a glider (you know, those whaddamacallits, white things, long, thin wings, those ones), if i have one of those, why will it not fly as well as a proper one?

(the model is a lot smaller than the real thing)

i was told that the air does not flow around a small wing as well as it does around a large one.

is that true?

if so, why so?

thanks.
