eVektor EV-55M Outback – Introduction

This is the toughest most shark-like aircraft since the Fieseler Fi-167 – and it’s a twin engine. My favourite type of aircraft. the EV-55MV is built by the Czech aircraft manufacturer eVector Aerotechnik. So far one prototype has been made.

The aircraft is designed using the latest CAD tools, and I have received a set of drawings in full scale showing the general layout, all major fuselage formers, and wing profiles. Making a model of this aircraft will be so much fun.
