Scratch Built Balsa & Ply Twin Turbine Powered SR-71 Project

I'm new to the rc group and was wondering if I could get some opinions on
the SR-71 we are building. The project is coming along well & many mods have
been made to the structure to accept the turbines for which it was
originally set up for DF engines. We hope to be in Toledo in April, but not
sure we will make it. If it's possible to post pictures on this I'll show
you how it's coming along.
Let me know if anyone is interested in seeing it. I would like to know what
people think of it, as it has been a large undertaking, but is starting to
tak shape.

The general rule is that the rec.* groups are text-only.

Sometimes someone posts a binary despite the
prohibition.

>Let me know if anyone is interested in seeing it.


There are free photo albums available online.

If you put the pix there, those who wish can give
you some feedback.

For example, <http://www.myphotoalbum.com/>.

RCU will allow photos, and they have an active jets forum. For some
REALLY good practical help, join Bob Parks' e-mail jets list.
rc-jets-on@lists.kidsource.com Bob was one of the designers of the
F-117 as well as a very accomplished modeler. It's a superb "how do
I..." resource.

Good luck!
