I haven't made any new models last winter. I mostly repaired and renewed the old stuff. I also had bad luck breaking one of my little model favorites - "orange" Yak-3. The fault was mine: I hurried and failed while configuring the remote control. Despite the confused controlling I managed to save the plane from a full-force nosedive, but the foam wing spar didn't survive such treatment...
Was there any sense repairing it? It would require a new wing though, besides the replacement traces would be noticable. And where there is a wing, there is everything else...
Such thoughts led me to make a relatively similar but new model.
