"Five Easy Piece" YAK-130

I don't know why I like this plane but I do. So here we go. A "Five Easy Piece" YAK-130.
Taking the orthographic (what the kids call a 3-view) into AUTOCAD I have scaled the model to a 42" length and a 36" wing-span.
This will be a mid-motor / prop pusher-jet with ailerons, elevator and rudder on fixed landing gear rendered in O/C FFF.

Had a couple hours to work on the YAK today. Don't have the ventral pan, nacelle pans and fuse cap sorted out . Tail needs more work to but it's a start.

Coming along as time permits.
I'm using this one as my design-build model. Once I have the pieces all fitted together I will cut out another one to gizmo and fly.

As always, Bob, I love your creative folding technique to get such awesome contours out of plain flat foam.

TPMG90's I think. I also have some Detrum Servos I might use.
Depending on her weight then I might uses GH Super-Sonic motor instead of SMJv2.
