Nice!!!! I have wondered why Flyfly never made one? One jet I wished flyfly would make is a nice Mig-15 to go with the sabre.

This looks just like a flyfly model. I wonder. Maybe it is made by them. I heard flyfly is suppose to make a Hawker Hunter as their next model though. Its not one I'd want really bad compared to that Mig-15 or a 21. A nice A-4 would work really well also.

I agree, A nice Mig-15 would be cool, I think they would sell a bunch!

Nice Size

WS100,

Interesting size and model. Few questions, though:

With 47" wing span and about 5 1/2 pounds and of foam, are there any structural beefing up of the wing-to-fuse attachment?

No flaps and rudder? Can they be accommodated?

Anybody built this model?

Del

Hello, I have this new info strait from the source!

Quote " There was the following enhancement of the L-39.

(1) 8mm Alum rod prebuild inside the wing and tail plane.
(2) Wheel enlarged to 68mm better for grass runway.
(3) Wheel material changed to mold-forming EVA. Much better for the
outlook."

Flaps and rudder can be easily added. Cut and hinge.
No flyers yet here in the US, This aircraft will be available very very soon!

Well this explains it then. Nice model and I hope to see more from him now knowing that. These are pretty much the only foam models I buy anymore. There are a few exceptions to that rule though.

I think he drop ships them. Shipping isnt cheap, but he always beats out EJF.com even with Roberts free shipping. I bought another F-4 from airshow and I'm very satisfied with their pricing and super service!
