This photo shows two SSC Warbirds and one Scale 2610 fighter. All have been flown with success in AMA/RCCA combat contests. At the top is the Boeing XF8B made of foam with ply crutch covered with blue polyester fabric. The KI61 and the stretched F8F Bearcat both use the Eppler 203 airfoil with washout. If I were to do them again (I did about 5 KIs) I would remove the washout as it is not needed at SSC speeds and only creates unwanted drag.
