F-35 Lightning II - Full Fuse Depron Pusher Parkjet

Dear All,

This is my second pusher project, following my YF-23 project :-

Please note that this build is version 1 of the design (shown in this thread) has been improved following its build and flight testing in order to make it more realistic, glide better and go together easier.

The MK2 plans are on my blog page, scroll down until you find it :-

Cheers

Craig

looking forward to the plans. I like the F35 over the F22 and your YF23 design was awsome. although I do think its a bit over my head. Is this going to be thrust vectoring?

Hi Shane,

Thanks for the positive comments

This one isn't gonna have thrust vectoring, but it could be modified to do so, It is however a test platform for a vtol version I'm planning to make.

I've completed the draft assembly of the 3d cad model and worked out how it will go together - see crude assembly guide attached

That's starting to look cool. Going to build this once you've got the Cof G sorted. Can't wait. Keek it coming. Oh do you plan on contouring the way Steve has with his F-22?
