Hi AJ,
We'll have matching T-33's! Except yours will probably have Canuck markings.

Yup. Gotta go with the groovy CF paint job. At the end of their lives the T-Bird had this sexy low vis paint that made it look pretty groovy. Same colours as the Hornet.

That looks much like the one that was the starter plane for the Reno Air Races last year when I was there. Beautiful.

i was lucky to have a camera man to do the T-33 Vid,
he is not as good as Wolfgang but i was very pleased with the video he took,

it was completly un-rehearsed and it was the maiden flight of the modified profile wing,

now that the Vacuum press is free i can press more F16 canopies and i will send them out asap

J and AJ
one of the ideas i have is to include a "gallery" folder with every kit i produce,
this will be included with every design,

i do this because if i bought a kit i would like to see pictures from other builders to inspire me

one of the best versions i have seen of the Hawk is the Tiger Strip

most people want to do the standard Red Arrows version
but there is a Camo that suits everyone

i know the T-33 will produce some excellent variations,
i am looking forward to seeing them

Well now, Mr. JMorgan, we shall see who gets the T-33 first in an Xtreme Battle of Post Offices of North America. Betcha mine takes 6 weeks to arrive. Minimum...

But once it's here, we'll be all matchy, you and I.

Hey Jack,
I really have no idea how long it will take to get here. After all the customs agents and bomb sniffing dogs, who knows? I just figure it will get here when it gets here!

J, AJ

it usally takes 7-10 actual days to arrive at your door,

the longest lenght of time to have a kit arrive was to Puerto Rico and that took 2 and a half weeks

i would suggest you make a template of the depron parts before you start building as i do the Vacuum parts seperate should you wish to build another one you would only need to buy the Vac forms,

Awesome. I had one of the Kyosho version. flew it for awhile then sold it at a swap shop. As soon as I did, I wished I would've kept it. Maybe with your upcoming plans I can build another one. Look forward to seeing them. Great work!

You are the man!!

The big F-16 canopies are perfect for so many other models, too!

Hans Keep up the Brilliant work
the F16 canopy is a nice shape and you use them well


i have many ideas but at the moment i am concentrating on the commercial side of Vac forming,

i12flyrc

i will be doing a depron design as a free plan but it will not be the T33

the wing tip tanks need to be Vac Formed and the shape of the fuselage is very complex curves

Hi Cadetman and other R/C flyers,i haven't had much luck with pusher prop jets but not being one to give up i have been looking at this T33.I'm using the logic as it isn't a swept wing that it will be a more managable jet,also on launching i have been caught by the prop (overarm launching).If i get one of these is the underarm lob the preferred method? I think i will get one of these,and if i get on with it i will hopefully move on to the 6mmFlyrc F4 Phantom.

one of the attributes i like about the T33 is the launch,

when i took it to the field to let people try it out they were all suprised at how slow i threw it into the air and how well it climbed out

its the 1000mm wingspan that doesnt make the wing drop due to torque from the motor

with a 200 watt motor the T33 would under arm launch no problem,

This is too cool. A clubmate of mine flew T-33's in the service. I'd love to do one a fly it with him in attendence.

Could this be converted to EDF? Could you please share pictures of the inside of a fuselage half.

Thanks Ray for the information i have the 2409-12T brushless motor already i was going to us it in the depron F18.So looks like i will have to get myself a T33 ! Just out of interest how did you launch yours? Greg,i just looked at the review on this T33,i might be wrong but i think it's not designed for EDF-i might be wrong.
