looking for balsa plans for a scale F-18 E\F

I have been searching off and on for while but can't seem to find scale balsa plans for a f18 e/f. I am not looking for the more boxy schumate type designs, but rather the scale plans. The limited plans I have found are for the box type ,or for the f18 a-c. Can anyone help?

Kevin, it looks fantastic . Now that's what i am looking for. Did you layer the strake's then sand them to that shape? What plans did you use? It doesn't seem as boxy from the pics (turtle deck, nose before the canopy, wing airfoil etc.) If you consider that boxy then what is Shumate's? Lol


Aviatormax, thx I will do some research.

The LEX/strake , the wings, the verticals and horizontals fin are foam sheeted with 1/16" balsa. The wings have a true airfoil.

I designed the early version of the HET 70mm F/A-18, it was boxy before the Shumate designs were out. Based on my earlier design I did Super Hornet.
