RE: Czech Mate / Perestroika
Thank you to those who have responded expressing interest in the Czech Mate/Perestroika plans. They are now complete and will be available soon. The plans comprise four sheets as shown above and includes all the templates necessary to scratch build the airplane. While all the details have yet to be worked out I'm relatively certain that a short kit will be offered either by myself or by one of the kit cutters. The airplane is CAD designed and utlizes many interlocking components which, while certainly not impossible, would make hand cutting the parts rather time consuming. I would also like to express that the design assumes at least a modicum of experience on the part of the builder and thus some details such as engine and radio installation are not shown but left to the discretion of the modeler. For those who have contacted me regarding the design I will be sure to keep you updated via email in regards to when and where the plans, accessories, and kits will be available. If the highly modified racer does not appeal to you then stay tuned as a stock Yak-11 version is also in the works.
