Garrison Aerodrome Manx kit

This was a second or third hand kit from Magnumrcmodels.com. I was led to believe it was a Yak. I think someone mixed up a couple of kits and I was left trying to figure out how and what it would end up as. The original canopy was a vacuum formed lexan from a Yak and the fuse was definitely that of a Mig 3. I used a block of EPP to fill in the empty place where a clear canopy should have been. The tail feathers were originally coroplast, much nicer in balsa!

Thanks to Phil H. for the wonderful EPP cores! I finally got it covered and took it out to the field for a maiden bungie launch. All went very well, no stall tendencies. 42" wingspan and all up weight of 17oz.
