Looking good, Doc. Say, are you anywhere near Bedford, England? I will be there from May 16-27 doing a JSF road trip with our fancy electromechanical computer controlled JSF STOVL display model, attending the 50th anniversary event at the Aeronautical Research Association facility there. I think the event dates are May 21-24.

If you are anywhere nearby, I could bring over some more info, perhaps.

All I can say is WOW, your craftsmanship is outstanding! Can't wait to see more. Where did you get the pilot figure?

Peter,
A little further than shown, I'm currently working on the efflux rotation and the transition rear doors, its taking shape though, wiring in some motors soon........

Tim,
Got the pilot from 'Mikes Models' in the UK, cant remember the name of the manufacturer though, its 1/9 scale but I'm 6'3 so it fits in a 1:10 scale bird. Only thing I dont like is the visor, not scale. But I've got a plan for that...........

Hey doc!

do you happen to use a cad program of any kind to draw out your structures before you build or go by the paper and pencil method?

or does it just "go together" for the masterful doc?
