    we had a discussion about this in another thread..can't find it...not about us building one..just the plans for the military one. Kinda cool..but think the F-18 designs out there cover the basics. Not too many people clamoring for trainer style aircraft ;) - well..not me at least lol. Plus no one outside of us would know what it was! lol

    do it though...just cause!

    At least the Yak-130 looks good and receives lots of attention

    Looking at F-111 and F-14 though

    F-14 has been done a number of times to great success here by FRC and over on RCG....i'd do a F-111...not sure i've seen a good one of those yet...

    The T38 could be the best looking jet ever made.....tough act to follow.

    Thinking about score-n-fold of F-14 and F-111 :) Most of those in RCG were sanded and hot forming sheets.

    I had some early surfaces sketch of it but didn't have time to continue. I love T-38 too. Having a success of designing F-16C, the T-38 looks simpler than the F-16C. Do you think we should go with T-38, CRMERC?

    You have enough going on without taking on another project. I think it would be a difficult plane to make because of the shape.

    Well, I always design any planes in my spare time, excluding my time with my family. This morning my daughter isn't feeling well so instead of going to the club, I'm accompanying her at home now. While sitting next to her with my laptop, I decided to continue this.

    It's much simpler from the F-16C, from my point of view. All the lines of the scratchbuild design have already drawn inside my head. Just like seeing paths that are not there when I fly the planes. I just need to follow them.

    May be I'm autistic, may be not. But for sure, one of my best friend told me once that I possibly am :D I'm so grateful with anything in my life. There are too many good things in my life that I will miss 'em all if I'm not grateful with it. :)

    But again, I just try to make use of my spare time. That's it. :)

  9. That looks like a perfect candidate to be an EDF parkjet

    Wow, the new tx looks great .. but I don't know if it looks more sexy than T38 or yak130...
    if you want an ambitious challenge go for F-111. I try one and work really good but I can't continue with the second iteration because time.
    It has a lot of challenges
    -could you make a simpler mechanism for swing wing it works as good of the F14 from jetset44? I try a simpler one but it was suffering wear with use.
    -the F111 wings are really small (actually the real F111 has a wing load a little lower than F104).. it needs a little enlargement to keep at least a decent glide ratio.
    -the fuselage (especially intakes and motors) is doble curved... but is possible to do and you are a really talented with the computer and foam
    -another point was motor position. My version was prop in slot and work great but I abandoned this config because noise...

    The good point is : if you can make a good and simple F111 you can get a Su24 easily...

    Hi rodrigo. Thanks man. However, I may go with T-38 first someday in the near future. What do you think?

    T-38 is a excellent choice and with simpler modifications you get the F-5... and there no other plane with more paint theme than this, aggressor paint included...
    BTW the preview on the computer looks great.

    Thanks rodrigo. However, my biggest constraint on the week ahead is time. Will have a big event with HP and Dassault Systemes this week which I will represent HP on the stage. :) So, no building/designing will continue this week :(
