I built a coro slope Mig 7 several weeks ago. A friend and I have been flying it off a mountain here in Phx AZ. He wanted something from coro too and had a crunchie Mustang to copy. I'll post some images of it in the coming weeks. Andy wanted to build it with little effort. So he rolled the crunchie over some coro and made an outline to cut. Coro tail feathers, and ordered a heavy taper epp wing covered with 2 layers of 5mil new stuff. He came over here and we cut the coro out made some coro formers. He hot glued it together in 2 nights. The wing rubber bands on. It fly pretty good for a hybrid not really scale thing. Sure looks cool in the air. They both needed 5 oz's of nose weight so we fly in strong wind. Sean's mig 7 thread is THE place to get going on coroplast. Andy and I have talked of more things to build/try.

locating corro can be a problem, if you get an answer on where to buy in your area, I will add it to the first page of this thread as a reference

Regal plastics is one source if you want a bunch of it.
http://www.regal-plastics.com/coroplast.html

If you just want a little to get started find a local sign shop. of course, 'bulk is better' so see if you can go in on some with a few other guys. This is where the build party gets started.

FB, you did a real nice job on your Mig 7. You set a pretty high bar for scale finish. Can't wait to see how your corostang turns out.
