Lee, as usual, a fantastic scratch build project (I love watching your scratch build projects - they are really educational and interesting). Good luck with the rest of the build.

 

Best regards

Hi everyone,

 

Thanks for the kind words and encouragement. They are very much appreciated. I have not made any progress on the Yak since my last post, as I have been been working like a madman. I'm writing this from my work computer- Don't tell!!

 

Loic, thanks for your input- I have not been practicing my French, for the same reason as why my building has slowed- lack of time. I appreciate your continued tutelage, though.

 

Quite a few folks have asked for Yaks, and this has suprised me somewhat. Didn't think it would be as popular as it seems to be. I have written down the names of folks who have asked, and in the order that they have asked, and will try to honor the requests in their order. a few caveats;

 

It is a 1/2 kit- wings are from a 1/48 F-15, and tail surfaces will be from sheet plastic. only a fuselage and canopy would be in any "kit".

 

Also, I carved this from Balsa, and not Basswood, as I have used in the past. The molds got a little beat up, and if they should become unusable before all of the requests are addressed, then, all would be able to do is apologise, and send plans, maybe? B)

 

 

I hope to do some work tomorrow, my day off, before i get shanghai'ed to drive my Daughter around to do the christmas shopping.

Lee,

As to the yak being a 1/2 a kit.What did u use for the nose sections as to the two piece fuselage.The rest from what i have seen is very easy and the use of the F-15 wings is also easy and even could be made from sheet.And is there any way to get a copy of the plans u have as to copying and enlarging.Larry
