I like the looks of the T-38's that do fly-bys here at McConnell AFB (next to where I work). They look like this, but I'm not sure where they are from.

Wow!!!

I too owned a George Miller T-38, with Byron fan and OS 91DF. Clocked 160 mph at Best in the West years ago. T-38's are by far the sexiest airplanes out there. Im lucky in that I get to drool at Thornton Aircraft's T-38's and F-5's from across the ramp here in VNY... You gotta be excited about this everytime you pick it up. The lightness of the foam should make for an awesome flying airplane!!!

Keep up the fantastic work. The only thing better than a T-38 is a GIGANTIC T-38!!!!!!!

That one in the pic is from Randolph AFB (RA). If you live around McConnell you are probably seeing T-38C's from Vance AFB (VN tail flash) just up the road, or occasionally from Whiteman AFB or Sheppard AFB.

First order of business is I have to thank Brent and Rodger for the hard work on making the foam cores for these wings and horizontal stabs. The design that went into the airfoil and washout was excellent.

Thanks guys

Got a little done on the cores today. Balsa all the way around and got the preliminary grooves cut for the 1/2" rods.


Plane takes on a whole new look when ya put wings and a stab on it..
