Rafale 2x 90 mm

Hi, this is the second classic build of my favourite plane, Dassault Rafale. Wing span 1400 mm, lenght 1905 mm. I´m started this project with 3D construction in SU 8 Pro. All construction make it in CNC laser 60W. 3D model I drawn 100 hours, and own cut 10 hours. I plan for this plane 2x 90mm EDF from VASA and 12s Lipoly. Weight 7500gr. and thrust together 8500-9000 gr.

Hi everyone :-),
today I´m covering top side wings and elevons with 1mm balsa. This work isn´t for me so funny, but without covering plane will not fly..

Wow, that is amazing! What software did you use for modeling this plane. It is a work of art without the covering, but I understand that you want it to fly.

+1 on the work of art. pekos, you have incredible talent.

I did notice in the center pic, fans where installed. I can't seem to find where the hatches are. Has anyone else really looked at the logistics of installing all the gear?

That is amazing -- I can't believe it only took you 100 hours to build the Sketchup model! I'm just learning it and it isn't easy at all!
