The twin 90 F-22 fuse is 60.5 inches long. I have a few basic pics on rcuniverse and will get some better ones Thursday.

Actually Mr Boogie (Microjet powered F-35 thread here in Jets) and I had already decided to experiment a bit. Not so much with surface roughness as layout. His access to fast prototyping equipment should allow the reproduction of essentially identical ducting, to which we can make simple, controlled changes. His bird is so close to 1:1 t/w already, that I'm thinking flight testing should be sufficient to "measure" the results. If we get anything worth reporting we'll post a thread. Who knows, perhaps 3D AutoCAD is able to produce surface textures too, thereby allowing THAT area to be explored as well.

Meantime Ed, are you aware of any online resources on the topic? Again, sorry to stray OT. Feel free to PM if that seems more appropriate.

My understanding has always been that turbulence is to be avoided in inlet ducting, but maybe stirring up the boundary layer is a good thing? I doubt it will have a huge impact on performance in though.

Just wondering...

Well I've been making slow but sure progress on the F-22 twin. Here's the latest pics. Strip planking was required in some areas like the fan access hatch and around the nose area and cockpit because of the compound curves but most of the plane is sheeted with big sheets.

Cool. You've got the body part of the lifting body, now all you need is the lifting part.

Just awesome!

Will you be using functional rudders?

Screaming twins are going to sound sweet!
