Default SCALECRAFT/TURBONUT 90mmMiG 21

We had the good fortune of getting a decent old composite MiG 21 fuse that can expedite the fabrication of one of our next wanted edfs.

It was made to fly with a prop. But not when we're done with it. Fuse is 54.25" from intake to tail cone.

This should come together much faster since it is not as complex a fuse as the F-104 and the fuse is already done. It will look more like a "MF" version than this "P" version

Pics did not load. See EDF jets section on RCG.

That sounds almost like the Skyglass vintage. Great project and will be watching. That's a very good size for tht model and EDF.

Is a Skyglass fuse. Right now anyway.

That was a well made model. I still have mine. Thought about doing the very same thing you are doing. Good luck with this.

The thing I like about it is that the fuse is very heavy. It is a perfect plug to convert to EDF.

. A few things are inaccurate that I will change, but its a pretty good rendition of the MiG.

pics still don't load. Server error pops up.

Hi Bob.

The 104 fabrication is mostly on RCG EDF section. It is going slow due to time and it's been too hot. A week ago I made the tank fins. The canopy fine tune is next.
