F16 - I snap rolled and slammed the jet into the ground, breaking the duct tube + undercarriage and eating dirt/gravel - the fan blades were destroyed. Sweet plane when it was in the air. Parts used in a few SkyAngel F18.
Mig-15. A couple of tail heavy first launches (CG very wrong) smashed the nose... but it flew a half dozen times afterwards. However, over time you could tell it was sucking air due to the deformed front end and eventually I could barely keep the plane in the air with the excessive duct leakage. Jet had as much gorilla glue and tape as foam.
Doh! That stinks, sorry to read of the gruesome details
It happens to all of us... on the bright side, it sounds like you just opened up some hangar space for some new models!
