A 3 view is one thing, a plan you can build from is another.

Try www.aviacherteg.narod.ru the site's in russian and kinda slow but they might have one. No cross sections though.

Dave,

At the moment i'm busy drawing one up (a one-seventeen plan that is) but i wil make it a "Slimer" first for experimentation purposes

Cheers,

RCM magazine published a plan of an F117 a few years back. It was a slimer powered by a .46 I believe. The author (can't remember his name) has a web site. I've got it around here somewhere and will post it when I find it. The plans might be a good starting point for a larger model.

Cheers!

You could use a free paper-model like the one in the link below as a basis for your model.

I think Traplet Publications has a plan for a speed 400 prop F-117. I've seen the advertisement for the plans inside Quiet and Electric Flight International.

I suggest getting the Tamiya 1/48 scale plastic model kit. It comes with a three view drawing in the directions and the model is among the very best you can buy. Perfect ref. material and you can measure it. Not too expensive if its exactly what you need.

The Testors 1/32 scale plastic model of the F-117 is larger and would be easier to measure and it's about 20-25 bucks at hobby shops.
