Got quite a bit done tonight, designed and installed the supports and bearing for the full flying stab, the main hatch support rails, the full turtle deck shaped and installed, canopy roughly sanded to shape and glued in position. And best, I designed and installed the main gear retracts and they work great. Unfortunately, the wheel base is quite narrow, so easy on the turns when taxiing.

Even though the landing gear is not really all that scale, it sits with a slightly nose high which should help during takeoffs. The main wheels are a lot smaller than scale but needed the narrow wheels and that's as big as they make these.

With nothing inside the fuselage, the model sits firmly on its gear so the balancing should be easy.

Hey Ken, just contemplating a twin 90 mm Mig-25, now that would be neat, huh...

John
The project looks pretty amazing from the photos. I am curious why you used the two different types of foam. I am not familiar with the green foam. Is this a different density. I vote for the camouflage scheme. Given the uniqueness of the aircraft type combined with this color scheme you may have a one of a kind model! Plus grey is getting so boring, not to mention harder to see. Good luck with the maiden.

Cheers
Marty

Re: Semi scale Mig-25 Foxbat, 70 mm

The two colours of foam is just that, just the colour, it's the same foam, the pink is from Home Depot, and in Southern California where I am, 1/2" is as thick as they have it in stock in full 4x8 sheets. When I was enroute to here in the fall, I stopped off a Lowes just south of Detroit, they had the 2" thick foam but it's green.

The camouflage scheme does appeal to me ver the grey, and I agree, the grey scheme is rather boring.

Re: Semi scale Mig-25 Foxbat, 70 mm

Without seeing your plane first hand I can only speculate on power needed. Based on dimensions it almost sounds like it might need a 90mm fan (or two 70's).
Perhaps an 80mm fan might be perfect on 6s?
