I decided to try building some 1:18 planes, to go with the 21st century and BBI planes I have. I thought a MiG-21 would be an easy first try (it's just a tube and two deltas, right?). I figured that at 1:18 I would need to beef up a paper model. So, I have scaled up a GPM MiG-21 too, well, 1:18 and scaled up some Jetex plans to serve as the stringers and frames. To go with the plastic planes, I figured that I would build it with working landing gear, flaps, ailerons, rudder and elevators. Just to make it easier for me, I wanted the flaps, ailerons, and elevators to work semi-accurately. To make the landing gear and flight controls I added plastics, aluminum and RC wheels to the paper, balsa mix. It isn't finished, but I did add another skin section to the plane after the last pictures were taken. If this works out, then watch out, I'll be a plane making fool! I am also building a purely paper GPM up scale for comparison. I'll add those pictures to a separate thread later.
