The Lockheed L-133

Okay who's gonna be first to build one then. Should be a doable aircraft as has generous wing area which includes the fornt wing set and it's also a twin.

The Shame was they had the engines for it with after burner in 1943 and it was canned.

This is a beautiful plane - it's on my list of future projets as well. I wonder what the best way to build the blended wing & fuselage is?

Long time that anyone posted, so I guess nobody dared

Well I just ordered the sharkit 1/72, and from there I will create an RC model.

I'm looking at a wingspan of about 1.8 meters and ducted fan. Fuselage will be glass, wings out of balsa.

If you're interested I'll do a build thread, but it won't start for another month or so when I finished investigating this machine.

If anyone has more information, plans etc, please let me know.

Cheers,

Ron

Just a start

How about a 60" wingspan with a 90 mm fan. Scale FSA for intake would be 3.2 sq in.

Look at frame 1:53
Planes That Never Flew - America's First Jet Fighter (49 min 57 sec)
there is something in what I thought was the intake is guns. In frame 1:59 there is a rectangular hole on the top. Is this the intake?
The model is from here http://www.fantastic-plastic.com/LockheedL-133Page.htm and does not have any intakes on the top

I was going to use 1 90mm and use the forward gun area as an intake. But the intake duct would take up most of the forward section and locating the batteries is impossible.
Using 2 70mm fans there is a weird intake to fit for the 70mm fans. Using one on top would cause fan starvation when the nose is pointed up. So a additional duck was placed on the bottom. A lip was used also to get that ram air. If it was flush a vacuum would occurred from the air flowing across it. The lip can be reduced and a modified NACA duct used.
A whole new intake may need to be created, but would alter the original design.

Lockheed J-37

The J-37 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_J37 was used in this plane.
The specs for the L-133 is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockhee...L-133-02-01.29

Just found this http://www.up-ship.com/eAPR/ev1n4.htm of the layout of the plane.

The front was both the intakes and for the guns . They ducted the intake around the sides of the cockpit. So the cockpit would be a good area for the batteries.
This is a weird intake to make. Will need to use the wheel well as a cheater.

Looks like a 90mm fan will not work and will have to use 70mm fans instead. The 90mm fan's intake would be up against the main wheel well and could not route intake. The 70mm fans will work but because of the intake routing around the side of the fuslage the plane needs to be scaled up 10%. Wing span will be 66". Ducting FSA is 3.25 sq" throughout and up into the fan.
Still working on updating drawings.
