Nice looking plug you have there. I for one appreciate all of the scale looking details you are working in.

The panel lines molded in are a plus. How deep are the panel lines in the fuse? Just a hint of indentation looks superb, too much and it'll start to look like a foamy. I'll bet that yours are just right?

GregG,

Yes, the panel lines will be just a hint of a line. I would like to fly this plane fast and panel lines are really just parasitic drag. Working on a composite wing for it now using materials other than balsa(yes I am a tree hugger !),
so please give us some time to test the new material. It will have a thin section wing true to the original. Once the wings are perfected will use it on our upcoming 90-120 mm edf models. The F-20 for a start.....

The airliner fuselage is epoxy fibreglass and the wing is wood. We are doing this as OEM and will release more info on where to get them as they become available.
The Mig-31 is 1460 mm long and will fit 90mm and 100 mm fans. 120 mm fans might be possible too.
Working towards a full composite airframe and wings.
Foam has is advantages also like price. Just what will be the target price on theses?

Well,

Other planes and helis have been jumping into line in front of the F-20 ! It has been pushed back for over a year now ! But, the CNC plug should be done this month.

The MIG -31 step up to come out soon . the master plug mold should be complete in July .and the models are only Hollow-mold vacum bag version . we have no interest to products the balsa sheet wing , and I am a F3b/F3f competitor pilot , so hollow mold are not a problem for me ! Since 2010 TF model are import Germany epoxy in production line .sl let see the Big successfuly A-330 2.0 m fly very easy (like a ep glider ) and keep 40 % power enough to fly and 11 min flying time with a 5000 mah 6s . The A-330 only net weight (empty have painting ) is 2.6 kg only .flying weight are 5.8 kg only .So the coming model or big models ,so the future model are no worry about the weight .
