Nice find!

There's a guy who posted here years ago with a -7 CAD model which he was giving away for free. This one is much more detailed.

Nice! I could definitely use that. But $300 for a copy? Ouch...

Considering the amount of work that went into it it's not all that expensive.

I am tempted. What could I do with it?

1. Simple flutter analysis
2. Load analysis
3. Layout work for the cockpit, airframe and engine
4. Dynamic analysis of the landing gear
5. CG calculations
6. Repair analysis
7. Stress analysis
8. Fracture mechanics for crack propagation analysis

Understanding some of the guys writing is tough but it sounds like the fidelity of the wing and other parts isn't that great. Look at the comments of the YouTube video.

That was my first thought as well. I did not see the emp detail but assume it was there.
