Mig 31 firefox

Has anyone tried doing a parkjet of the firefox from the movie? I just got some good techs on it and was thinking of doing a mock up. If its ben done then why redo all the work.

It will be for depron/fff and yes I will be sharing. Im working out the parts first got some drawn and some working out. Shoulda spent more time in the cad lab.
This is the start of its center. Thinking 6mm depron with 3mm laminated on each side then sanded to shape. it will be slow going this month but thats kinda given (its xmas again ) I welcome all ideas and help. Thanx

Its geting there I'm starting with a flat out card flinger to see how well it flies. Cant find info to see if the canards are also controling points too. given that its a fitional plane that dont matter mutch. What do you guys think? Canards as ele, do mixing of elevon/canard, canard/thr mix, or fixed canard. I think canard/thr mixing along with using it to trimwhould be good but need to see how the flinger works first. Got some card stock will try to make a small flinger in the nexed cppl days (3 kids and work make time tight but this is my escape)

Dont worry it will all be posted and know that I see that intrest is good I got no choice. Most likely this wont go varry far till after the first of the year. Judging by the card flinger a may need to tweak virt stab size to keep the nose up front, and posibly add 10% or so to lift serfaces. The full fuse may give more lift or this will be one thrust hungry plane. I cant get any depron till after xmas, so making a small flinger from 3mm will have to wait. I'm still working on templates for parts and tink that keeping an air foil through the squarish jet housings is needed on pusher setup.
I have included a look at the frame base as it will be tested in 3mm depron.
