Rutan Long EZ/Berkut precision scale model

Years ago, I built a 1/3rd scale version of this aircraft for a kit manufacturer, which flew as an RC model, and was also used for testing in the Air Force's MTHEL project. See the RC model's physical construction here.

The 3D model shown here is all new (2009/2010) and completely rebuilt in MODO. It's far more accurate, and can be used in scenes (by slightly altering the landing gear) to simulate either the Rutan "Long EZ" or the "Berkut". It's a combination of hard polys and sub-d, and has a medium level of detail. (It was built with spline cages.)

The existing model:
