That is one of the most beautiful and expertly constructed airplanes, either model or full size, that I have ever seen. Kudos to you for it! Thanks for sharing it with the rest of us.

Sincerely, Richard

some different featuresno external latches or switches-you squeeze the vertical tail which actuates a micro swith and servos release the canopy-the servos are tied to the receivers failsafe system so that when the radio is on they can not actuatealso -the wheel pand houses a composite spring of kevlar and carbon fiber and my favorite-the hot rod type exhaust stainless megaphones that were welded on and polishedthe moki 400 should sound pretty good through thosealso note-no flying wires to install to fly and the fuse breaks aft of the canopy for suv transport137 inch span11ft long

I understood that there are no plans to kit it: it would be too expensive to sell much. Then I wondered if any drawings exist that would help a scratch builder do something similar.

I don't think many could duplicate this masterpiece. I don't even think anyone should: a direct copy would be like a $5 Rolex. Things like this need to be unique.

(disclaimer: I am not in position to even seriously think about doing anything this big myself now)
