New design, PIK-26 Mini-Sytky in Peanut scale

An new Peanut-scale kit was published some time ago. You can purchase it from–pik-26-mini-sytky-peanut-scale

It is rather exact scale short kit. I scaled it from my larger plans and made minor adjustements to facilitate smaller size. Kit contains laser-cut balsa parts. No hardware or balsa strips etc. included.

Continued with PIK-26 Minisytky canopy

Well, it must be summer already as I started carving canopy out of block of wood. See previous episodes.

Some progress

With PIK-26 Mini-Sytky..

Continued with wing & tail. Decided to cut some effort by replacing stick-structure of tail with sheet. Used soft sheet to keep weight penalty to minimum. It’s just faster. Then I did also wheel cover molds.

Continued build of PIK-26 Mini-Sytky

Nothing special. Just your average balsa building stuff. First pic of fuselage top which I did some time ago. Then wing halves, finally joining them.

And next canopy

Yep. It’s that time again. Now it is time to do 17% PIK-26 Minisytky canopy. It is rather small and there is no hurry. Schedule is next summer. But these blocks will take ages to dry so lets start early.
