Just some markings and a pilot to upgrade the model a bit. Markings handcut from Solar Trim and pilot carved from foam. Canopy removes to access battery and charge lead. Now 10 flights on the books.

Mig-21-f13 still to add pilot and markings built from the Paul Jassens plan. 25" span weight 460 grams.

Model has now flown 4 flights from Ocean beach in approx 15km winds I use this site as it easy to recover a model if it can't make it back. First flight was for 20 minutes and next 2 flights I adjusted the balance a little further back. Looks great in the air and the view as the model flys away is more like a missle than a plane. I can now add some markings and a pilot and finish the canopy and try a site with some more lift like Te Mata peak which has some excellant lift from its 600 foot faces.

All good, built from the Andy Conway plans, this model weights in at 680 grams for 42" span. RG15 wing section. Flys very nicely in the 12 knot winds my slope gets. Definately will build another!

The Mig-15 project is nearly over, Still some minor work like adding the other set of fences and the pilots seat, this model was always made as a flyer not a looker. Mig has 4 flights so far with about 80 minutes flight time, and has flown mostly in quite light lift 10 knots or less sometimes!. Flys extremely well with the light wing loading. The stall is predicatable, and its quite scale in the flight character, does rock its wings a little when flown very slowly. I really like the colour scheme its shows up nicely in flight. Have struggled to get many photos in flight, my last flight had the camera out and one of the guys took some shots amd video but the results were disappointing. Will get memory card into my camera and keep persisting!
Where to now ?? We have a baby arriving in march! So any future projects will be spread out over the next winter. Im Struggling to think what Scale PPS model to build next MIG3? La7? Mig21? Maybe a Corsair or Na Fury? so many choices!

Товарищи! Это мой МИГ15, всё еще находящийся в стадии строиительства, но я уверен что в скором времени он уже начнёт покорять своими изумительными полётами мирное небо Новой Зеландии. Всёх приглашаю на то что бы пропустьтить стопарик за мой МИГ перед полётом. For the Russian speaking of you!


Still work in progress but its getting there, will get onto the nose and tail cones shortly. Still quite light at 575 grams will glass the belly to try and save on dents and damage.

Any one else building some some PSS Jets at the moment?

Tested my Hawk today, on a light lift slope, had some trim changes after take off but goes well, Rg15 section 12 1/2 oz weight floats nicely. Now for the big lift test!
