I have a George Miller T-38, which is a bit bigger than the Fiorenze version. The T-38 is my all time favorite aircraft.

T-38


many moons ago, Allen and Jim at Air Magic where working on a larger T-38 (about a fiorenze sized) Composite version, I wonder how far they got with it. I think I heard the wing mold had warped or something, but What about the Fuse etc? They also had a sport jet they bought from Dorian before he passed away, Starfire/Bandit looking thing.

Foremost Mods


So It started playing with the booms last night and it has servo pockets for standard size servos everywhere. I did notice that one of the two kits (I have not checked them both) already had some of the mods incorporated into it. I bought a No retract version for Turbine use and a regular (or retract version) for EDF.

Anyway, there is a former in the boom going up to the tail. I did not get a picture of it, but it looks like the one from the mods.

And so it Begins


Well, I have excuses left. I kept telling Clay that until I went to 2.4 completely, I would just lay low. Since Tuesday was my B-day, I splurged on 2.4 receivers, boy did I over due it. Anyway, time to wipe off the dust and “Get R Done” well at least the Foremost before we can move on to the Top Gun F-15 and the T-38.

What makes this foremost different than all the others already built? Well since we are cheap, and bought the foremost and then the additional intakes from Richard at Airshow RC, we paid $180 for the plane and about $50 for the intakes.

First order of business was to cut out the Nose gear door and mount the retract mounts, nothing new there. I got the intakes and aligned them to be as high as possible inside the fuselage and then Used BV Zpoxy to glue them in place. In the corners where to lips are, I had to create a nice fillet since they do not hug or follow the fuselage perfectly. These intakes are the ones from the more expensive Venture that goes for about $740 or so.
