MIG 29 home made twin EDF construction


Hi, first of all.... sorry for the language.... and then I show you what i'm working on.
I used some 3 view plans for obtain the parts of the fuselage.
I used plywood and balsa and fiberglass for the master. (for a long job like this why i have to work for a single model?? better build a master for a mold....

If everything works, i'm going to use two EDF HET 6409 with 2W20 and 4s1p.
estimate AUW will be about 2,5 kg.. it's 120cn long.
I don't want to use retract for the first flight, maybe in the future

Cool! Well done so far.
I love the Mig 29. I had one long time ago that was only a single model and ended badly...

After a single painted with a primer and then sanpaper I started to cover the fuselage with pieces of a thin aluminiun paper, trying to remain as much as possible the panels like the original airplane.
I had problem bending this aluminium in two different way.. so I decided near the cockpit to divide in two one panel... ( )

Awesome work!

What do you use to bond the aluminum? Maybe it comes skicky back, I don't know.
