Custody of the wings have been turned over to the Falcon. Take good care of them and bring them up well. Bye bye little wings, fly fly away sniff sniff....

Cool wings. You know, next time, I'll have to stop by and see them attached to something.

Great to meet you Randy, have a good flight back tomorrow.

Wing cores look great!! I like the subtle washout you put in there Brent. I hope to have the plane on her feet in the next few weeks.

Actually its not too hard to spot in the F-22. If you look at an underside shot you can see the fuse begin to narrow and flatten out starting at about the 1/4 chord of the wing root, right behind the weapons bay. I dont see it in the F-35 either, I guess 40,000 lbf is enough for whatever they want that little plane to do.

Very nice!!! Great build thread! Great looking plane!

Falcon5,
if you paint your bird this color, you might have to have these canopy covers!

The T-38 is one of my favorites planes, and in the white version shown just above... and of course, in the Thunderbirds scheme!
