Whatever Airliner or aircraft I build I always try ang get a plastic or die-cast model so I can hold it in my hand & use it as a guild while sanding, comes in real handy! this is a east german Veb-plasticart TU-134 "harder to find than a truckload of dead rats at a tampon factory!

Now I'm beggining the process of hand drawing the big 80" plans of the TU-134.
I probably hate this part the most.

Looks like a great project!
I read somewhere that the tail feathers of a model should be slightly larger (proportionally) than those of a full-size plane.

I Heard that two Djacob7 but that's usually because of aerodynamic issues from a large glow engine or something like that, but on my RC airliners I try and stay as scale as possible that way I don't get in trouble with other scale airliner builds Like Concordefan & lovevolution!LMAO

Well, on Tu134 they are already oversized - much larger than on e.g. Md-80. So I hope the scale size would be OK.

Yes indeed, Mr Andrea Tupelov loved his elevators.
