Just started my latest scratch build project, a 1/8-th scale MiG-21 MF (Fishbed J) for a 101mm fan.

So far I managed to find some time to patiently cut out all the fuse formers and trial fit the fan ...

It will eventually be powered by a Neu 1515 motor in a 101mm fan on a 9S 4000 setup; depending on final weight (< 9 lbs) power will be in 3.0-3.5 kW range.

Inspiration for the MiG-21 project came from another avid edf-er JC (Bidule),

I found this particular plan on e-bay:

The plan is nice and seems very well made ... will know more about the quality after the MiG has flown

Edit Jan 7 2011 : Video of the second flight of the MiG-21:
