Here's one of the BAe GR Mk. 5 (essentially the -8B) if you want the larger pic go to 3-view images . It's pretty good

BTW SPFD that's a Av-8A, not a B (pointy nose!)

You can go buy a plastic model. That's what I did.

Wow ..

These are some really good pictures. I was wondering what size model did you use for your plug? I wonder why no site has any fusealage lofting/cross section pictures. I have herd about getting a model and cutting it up, but would I fill it with something first or just glue together and start cutting?

I think guys fill the models with modeling plaster of some kind. I dont know why you would not just cut it up with a band saw though, maybe to help keep it togter? Really, you dont even have to put the model to geter, just use a fuse half, cut it, scan it, trace it, and mirror copy the part to get good symetry.

I'm interested

I've been looking into this myself and am extremely interested if someone comes up with the cross-section plans before I do!!

I'm tracing now...but its very slow.

From my research I see there is alot more information on this airplane over seas, but most the web sites I find I can't read or understand the writing. Maybe there might be a modeler in Germany willing to help.

I didn't fill the plastic model, but it may help. I just cut one section at a time and traced them as I went. I don't remember what scale the plastic was, but bigger is better. I wouldn't mess with anything really small.

The wing on the AV-8B has a lot of twist and that makes a distinctive look to it. If you build without it, it would probably fly better, but never look right. A tough decision. That's one of the reasons I haven't finished mine.
