 RusJet model Yak-130

Originally debuted at the 9th Jet World Masters championship in 2011, the RusJet model Yak-130 designed and produced by Vitaly Robertus was recognized for its level of accuracy and it set a standard in its class never before achieved. This model managed to receive a highest static score ever. Well, not to be out done for the new World Masters Jet event a new RusJet Yak-130 has been built. Here’s a sneak peek of the NEW Yak 130 model that will compete at the 2013Jet World Masters at the Meiringen Airbase in Switzerland.

Special Thanks to RusJet for this amazing footage.

    This jet takes scale modeling to a whole new level. He has access to some very high tech equipment to create such a masterpiece. Kind of makes me ashamed of my little foamies!!.

  4. GM Tech says:

    Is that pilot figure alittle on the small side?

    • Dave Cooper says:

      think about your question, its not a small aircraft and with that exact attention to scale detail is he going to make a mistake like making the pilot too small, I dont think so.

  5. Frank says:

    GM Tech,
    I think the small pilot is in training for Iran’s new stealth jet.
