    Yep, that's the one. :) There's a kit for it, at least there was. Some of the finished pics I've seen look like a big plastic kit, panel lines, weathering, the lot. The only give-away is the prop sticking out the back. :)

    Same here, there's so much work going into the model, I'd need to be pretty confident in my flying. :)
     
  2. Wow Lars, gorgeous looking planes!
    Where are you getting the scale templates underneath it from or should I say how are you designing them?
    Sketchup from a scale model?
     
  3. F14 tomcat has been on my list of builds for a very long time! Would love to build 1 too!

    Keep at it, practice will get you there. Sometimes you might be able to use stuff to help with tricky cuts, coffee tin tops for curves for example. :) Or just buy a kit every other time... :D

    Edit: Just saw your build and like Airflow said, there's nothing wrong with it. :)

    I simply downloaded 3D drawings in different versions of the Su platform.
    Similar to this one.

    Then I processed the drawings in a CAD/CAM computer at my workplace.

    You gotta remember here. Airflow just doesn't do these plane like one would think.

    He builds these really cool frankinbirds and only uses the plan, that we build entirely from, ...as a starting point.

    Got up to the flying club and what do I find! An A10 mk2 a Su37 mk2 and I had the mig 2.88 with me. Here is a video of all three flying. So cool to see them all together that are not all built by me!

    Yes Greg! the Tomcat is a great Cold War naval based machine with a cruel look:cool:, far from its scrawny successor, the F-35:confused:;)

    I know what you mean mate, but that's the beauty of these planes. You've built it before, you can do it again - and you will have learnt a few tricks to make it quicker and easier to build, and better. :) All the best for your maiden. :)

    Hi Lars,
    Always impressed with your airplanes, but can you tell me which website you use to get those super detailed drawings..got to get around to building a more scale looking MIG29...

    Thanks Barry! Unfortunately, the link to that page is stuck in my old PC... I ran into a hard disk crash ... There are loads of great detailed drawings of most of the Russian and western fighters from the US, Israel, France, Sweden, UK. Have not found anything like it anywhere else ... I will come back to you if I manage to find the page again.. Here are some examples of the MiG 29 from other web pages ..

    All set for tomorrow's flight.
    A look in the brain office. A cleaner look than last year's electronics center.

    Two 4s batteries instead of three. 2 ESC 40A instead of 2 60A for the previous elevon mounted NTM motors.

    last year's version ... crowded ...
