Nice project. I think Fahim has done a good job of presenting a kit that will produce as good a replica of the T38 the builder wishes to produce.
Good luck.

Happy New Year,
Eric B.

I have been tweaking the design and cuts to accommodate the optional plastic parts and to capture more of the scale details. I feel confident now that it is there. Your comments and question are as always welcome.

The next step is to start shaping the parts that will be optionally available in plastic.

To this stage I have invested my time and a lot of foam. Going forward I have to commit money for tooling, etc. I need at least 10 orders to recoup my investment.

Some of you had offered to pay a deposit, but I wanted to wait till I was sure of the feasibility of the project, which I am now. Before I start spending the big bucks, I would like to see some monetary commitment from your side.

I have set up a webpage for a $50 deposit at http://www.wowplanes.com/product_inf...roducts_id=211

OK back to the T38
I started prepping the foam while waiting for the plastic parts.
Here I started to prep the section of the fuselage just under the canopy.
I am also building a construction manual, so I will just post the same pics here, that way I can avoid the double work.

Might be a bit time consuming but if you copy all of Fahims instructions into your original post, then just edit it to add your steps as you do them, it would keep the flow of the project much smoother. Looking forward to seeing your finished plane
