Looking good, goforit


I started a scratch built one last fall. I got pretty far along, until the F-86F bug bit me. Pics in blog-- http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=239555

All wing and stab angles and incidence are all ready put in. The idea was to make a plug and glass it, and start from there. I got every measurement I could from hofer's V2 Starfire, so I good from that point. I am thinking of modifying the intakes to use the JetFan 90, because it puts out as much thrust as the OS91/Dynamax does, somewhere around 12-14lb. Heck, it would be smaller than the F-86F I'm building now. Will see, next winters project. If I don't get side tracked again.
