Scale Build-off 3 Hamburger Flugzebau HFB 320 "Hansa Jet" build

I always wanted to build a smaller jet, but I have seen enough gulfstreams and lears so I chose a smaller different aircraft, in turn I came up with, the Hansa Jet!, and after 2 build sessions of working, I have almost gotten the nose ready for sheeting, next will be the Wing/Nacelle mounts and then the wings themselves, enjoy the build



It is sized for twin 50mm EDF's

And will be 1350mm long

And have a 1200mm wingspan

More info and specs coming soon

I Picked the reg no: TC-LEY as I like the scheme
It is a privately operated aircraft from the looks of it...

Great subject, I'm subscribed! Did you draw up some plans or go straight from the 3-view?

I measured from the three view to draw up some simple plans and cross sections

Awesome, I hear that the Hansa jet apparently roars overhead (and no longe complies to aircraft noise regs )
