I used to keep a list of manufacturers etc. but Marc Ramsey maintains a much better page so I'll just point to it now.
I am also in a partnership in a Duo Discus, Serial # 215SH, "5H". The Duo Discus is the glider that was used for the film 1999 remake film "The Thomas Crown Affair". Our glider, 5H, made its first flight as a US registered aircraft on the 15th of August about a week after the movie was released.
This is the Duo Discus based at Williams N175DD, not mine though I've flown this glider. I'll add a picture of 5H as soon as possible. This picture was taken by my partner in the LS-3a, Nobuo Ueda.
