Well I took a look down the intakes on the F35 right around where the rear gear is things open up quite a bit and then goes to the back of the plane with a dead stop. So what I thought I would do is build some sort of transition piece that would curve the airflow from the outer edges of the intake inward and direct it to the intake of the fan. This would essentially cutoff the entire open back area of the plane. So take a look at the small transition piece I made from depron...you can really see how it will curve the airflow. I am just not sure how I am going to get it in a finished and built plane.

This is a shot looking from the front of the intake tube down to where the fan sits.
This is a shot from about where the fan sits (rear) and where the intake opens up.
This is the same shot, from the front intake looking down into the intake of where the fan would sit. This has the transition piece set in place.
This shot is from the rear looking forward up the intake tube with the transition piece installed. You can see all the area to the left of the upright transition piece that gets cut off.
Same shot but from above a little.
