I'm interested, but I usually don't get overly excited (except for
airliners or big heavy jets, don't ask me why that's just me) until I
see it fly. I'm watching your progress Mike and so far it looks

If I want something though I usually just print out a 3-view to my
chosen scale based on powerplant, and start cutting foam.

Mike, if the Bug fly's anywheres close to how the Mig-29 handles your going to have a fantastic jet to add to your growing line of products. Well Done!!

Glad to hear the maiden went well, Mike. I suppose I am more of a scratch-builder than prospective customer, but I'm interested in your efforts - and successes - just the same. Keep up the good work!

is that just tape holding the nose on? lol. Hey, whatever works, at least its light

Looks great. Once I get more 'project money' and some more equipment, I think I may make the move for more jets, they just attract so much attention and have a 'cool factor' that can't be met by anything else!
