Yes,it takes a lot of time and plastic for creating a new design,

Off course I will buy the MiG-3 files! (And your future Soviet designs)

As for the threads.....if you are not sure about the design,just make an other(2) option(s)
Because you said before you know the stall “Character”of a flying MiG-3 very well.

The LA5-FN was fun to build. Great fun / $ ratio.
I'm in for a Mig3 of the same size.

For this wing size, a larger support structure is needed to maintain stiffness.
the weight of the wing is 2x80g, the rest is 180g, the total weight of the plastic is 360 g.

I will not make a chassis for this size. but for 1200mm there will be an option with a place for retracts

Good work!

The MiG-3 is one of my favorite Russian fighters (after the IL-2).

Can it be scales up to 1200mm wingspan?

Let me know when the files are available for sell.

I just bought my 8 th 3D printer,

I do not know yet if the Ender 3 will be a good 3D printer for the MiG-3......time will tell.

Also had some e-mail contact with Callie Graphics: https://callie-graphics.com/pages/warbirds

Needed too order 3 times 1/12 scale decals for a 3D printed Lavochkin La-7 + 4 times number (#28)
In the e-mail contact I also asked Callie if it was possible too get 1/12 scale MiG-3 decals.
No problem,she wrote,19 dollars!

What is the root chord of the original wing please ? My Mig3 has a chord of 240mm .....

If your Mig 3 wing is similar - I will be interested in buying the files. My fuselage is repairable.

I do not quite understand what you mean by chassis, here, even though it is a French word.
Do you mean to say that you will not make an internal frame for the fuselage?

Optional retracts at 1200mm wingspan size is a very good idea.

All plastic parts are ready.
For ailerons I use 5g servo, but there is enough space for 9g servo. For the 850mm wing I will use wheels without mechanization. The rubber shock absorber should work well in hard landing. The rear wheel is mounted on the ruder.

This plane looks awesome!

Servo covers would be nice for the wing.
