Now that is excellent :thumbsup: And also very good to see all of it at last, after all in-progress photos of small bits of the airframe!

The OKB did not want the Capitalist Westerners to find out too much about their superior aircraft until it had flown  ;D :thumbsup:

Even if I did end up shortening the wings?

Nice one - looks rather MiG-ish to me, though?  :thumbsup:

I know  :banghead: it was the fin tip that made me go for a Russian aircraft as it is very similar to the MiG 23/27 family. There is also a similarity to the Tu-28 in its fin tip shape.

Looks like the Soviets copied off the Eurofighter

For me, it's the overall look. Not so much Eurofighterski, the overall shape rather reminds me of the (unmaterialized) light MiG-33 export fighter, a design which resembled a bit the F-16, but with a single fin only. Anyway, I like the Yak!  :cheers:
