Can you please talk to Jalin about reducing the intakes down to realistic sizes?
I have a feeling you just did.

I forgot to say that I completely agree with Nitro about the intakes. I'm personally going to nip&tuck the intakes on my Hawk when I get it.

I just did a quick doctored image of the Hawk to show just how good it would look with smaller intakes (they all look really good anyway, this would make the looks even better)

The intakes could do with reducing on the t-45 , i dont know how that would impact the performance though.

I moved the brace in the cockpit forward on my AMX, and now it fits several types of 1500 packs. The extra weight doesn't affect anything, including launching. If anything, it grooves better.

BTW, this was an airframe (including fan and motor) from BH, for $39.00. Came in a week by UPS with no issues.

After seeing this pic I miss my AMX!! I may have to buy another...

Airframes from Banana Hobby are the best way to go! ordered 2 more yesterday. And will finish up my F-16 tonite....

It works. Depending on the damage, it may take a little work. But small dents and dings usually come right out!

I have the T-45 and F-86 , I like both but my favorite is the
t-45 it's much more stable and is faster
the t-45 blew the fan after about 20 flights and I replaced it with:

I got to fly a T-33 today. Slower to get started than the F-16, but still a very nice flyer once it gets on step.

Picked up an A-4 for myself this morning too. Going to get it done today and maiden tomorrow.
