Just adding pictures of the fuselage halves. Took a few days to get time with the software for the new camera.

Opinion !

Hi Eric !

Thanks again for your help. Just had a look at your Blog and thought you might appreciate an opinion on your plane.

Superb design - vaguely reminds me of a Sabre ! ! !

Very nice and super sleek profile.

Regards . . . Eddie.

Hi Eddie,

The little D-model is coming along a little at a time. I do have more things to take pictures of to show. Might get to that tomorrow. Thanks for giving me a little boost to finish it.

Here is a couple pictures of the bonded fuselage. I spackled it, will sand it before adding the wings and stab.
You will notice the fixture under the fuselage, it is designed to set the wing, stab, and thrust line to the exact angles I used in the design.

I put the nose on the airframe, and spakled and sanded most of it. Still needs a little work. The weight is 4oz ATM, all the parts on the scale shows about 7oz including battery.

Tested the fan for installed thrust. The test stand thrust was ~5oz(5300 motor on 3s) the installed thrust came out @3.1oz this is with no cheaters.

Not bad, I was getting about the same with my dud-tastic Sharpshooter which had a 5800 in it.

Is the fan pretty quiet tucked away in the fuse? I guess I'll have to wait for a maiden video to find out.

Well I have been working on the little F86D. Here are a couple of pictures of it. I have a canopy carved out for it but need to get some magnets to hold it, I should get some this weekend.

I am thinking of making it a "Texas ANG" scheme. I want to fly it first, I think the paint might put a little weight on it....
