yeah, the guys at the print shop just need to print it 1:1! good idea, stick it on the first page

please note: the firewall former has been removed, F2 modified (round cut out instead of original square shape), and i have not included things like main grain direction etc. refer back to the original document for those details. also, you will still need to add the inner aileron bits to the inside of the wing template. the purpose of the document is purely to use as building templates.

I need to get me one of these sloping Migs to bring it full circle. Ya think?

The smell is great but the cleanup.....
Hey MigMan,
I`m just kidding with you. Any kind of R.C. flying is GREAT.
I confess i`ve never flown an oc powered plane so I`m just stirring the pot a bit
I think the Mig was intended mainly for oc engines and then modified to electric and then slope thanks to Sean.

Lots of "Maverics" around!

The big question....
Is Captain Vodka unscathed?

Great turn-out!

If someone doesn't know you guys are a bunch of kidders they don't know you too well. I didn't even think you meant it that way.

And that fan out front is a must for combat. The pilot starts to sweat when they stop.

I forgot to mention. You guys keep raising the bar on each other on the finish of your Migs. That scale looks great as does the Gulf design.
