Its a shame the X-35 isn't in production and never will be again. The model Kin has is the X-35b not even near the F-35B in production. I mentioned the part of research and the easiest fix was to re do the whole front of the jet as the front intake decks are all wrong for the actual F-35 B in production. Also that as modelers we would never be able to vertically lift off so why even attempt to produce an X-35 let alone a B' model. Don't get me wrong. Kudos for the excellent workmanship, its just been done on a model not in production. Can I have the fuse's that accumulate when they don't sell?

He may need one of these!
Don't forget the F-35B has a single front intake hatch that opens rearward.

It should be after the F-20 . but the f-14 twins 90mm are completed the 3-D drawing , so maybe is F-14 and than F-15 .

Finally, I've been looking a long time for a F-14 twin 90mm.
Watching with interest.

Hi Kin this 90mm twin F14 sounds interesting. Will this jet have variable sweep wings?

It base on a TAMIYA big scale plastic model . this model very good detail . of couse i can not make the wing airfoil from a real plane . i have use a rc model airfoil to drawing the wing section . just very little change the scale (thickless only ) . all the scale are very close full size . so it should vey nice model .it is twins fan 90mm x 2 .1650mm length .it control by the tail wing only . no need the main wing aileron .

That sounds great, about time some bigger 90mm models came out, make sure you can fit plenty of battery into it

And of course you will build it around your electronic retracts right?

Kin,
Will be intersting to see how it handles with the moving COG as the geomety of the wing changes.. This has caused delays with a foamy version that's been in the works for a while.. I beleive its been sorted now though..

Starmax's foam F14 suffered from undersize intakes and fans too small to provide enough power for the size of the model. The swept wings only required a little mix in the elevator and the model actually flies quite well with a half decent power system.
