Is anyone making the MiG bra to sell? I'd happily pay someone to make an extra for me ...

Ditto. I need the bra, I'm already feeling the damage caused by 'gravity'.

I wonder if we can enlist the help of Keith over at www.parkflyerplastics.com ?

It just wouldn't be economical for me to ship them stateside as a standard little box costs 9.10 to send.

Of course!

I'd send them anywhere but the shipping for a small box stateside is 10 bucks and that to me seems too much of an ask for such a small light item....

What would that come up to total if you were to ship one to U.S.?

I will make some too, if anyone needs them in the EU or UK.
The plaster mold is ready and made after a brand new fuselage, just waiting for the shrink tube.
In the meantime I'm making some wing tip protectors with some other shrink tube I already have.

This is my version of the mig, a „swiss design”. No, Switzerland doe`s not own or fly mig`s, but I like the red/white color in general. and from my view the decals on the umx mig are cheap quality (I own two mig umx and both have such cheap decals).
The red bull team flies mig`s comin in red http://www.richard-seaman.com/Aircra...g17Banking.jpg, but the red-bull fying team is also not swiss.

So I made a “fake-design” of an (non-existent) swiss flying team, called them the “Swiss Bulls”, and cause Switzerland has a lot of “bulls & cows”, this should match ;-).

Decals are made by waterslide decals printed on white waterslide decal sheets, designed with ms publisher.

If you look at the nose, my mig crashed like an bull nose straight forward to ground, was flown in the sun and lost her from sight. But repaired an re-colored (revell water-based acrylic color) the nose like mentioned in this thread earlier.

sincerely

stefan

Very nice job on the molding!

I would love to get a nose bra too. If someone is making a commercial one please make it so it covers a part of the inside of the intake as well, this would make it stronger.

Seeing how good a job Eflite did with the thin plastic 'skin' around the cockpit, I'm wishing they made a thin plastic skin for the whole plane, that would have been even cooler.

Like others, I have often thought of a vac formed model with a keel or skeleton for structural support so you get that slick gloss finish on the outside.

Glenn from RC-Connectors.com sells pretty much every extension, harness, adapter, pigtail and connector that's used on the various UM bricks - including the JST-PH 3-pin: http://www.rc-connectors.com/index.p...al6jsksi046tj0

Sparkfun also sells pigtails (but you have to rearrange the wires to get the color-code right): https://www.sparkfun.com/products/8733

So does Polou: http://www.pololu.com/catalog/product/117

For those who are across the pond, Micron RC also sells them: http://www.micronradiocontrol.co.uk/conn_ar6400.html

DigiKey has the raw connectors & pins: http://www.digikey.com/product-detai...1126-ND/527357
