The YF-23 was pretty cool... And the Navy ATF designs were just as cool, and cooler. But, it was just not meant to be... [&o]

I agree the arresting hook is concealed and then retract out of a compartment.. Think of when the AF uses the drag shoot

Went to Kinkos today and when I printed the 3 views it came out to 28''
Now I need to figure out how to go from 28'' to 116-120'' Ok I know if I enlarge the
print to 26 * 200% will give me 52'' and * 200 will give me 104 but to go from 104 to
116-120 what would be the percentage []
If someone know please help
A very simple way of calculating scale percentages needed:

1.- Divide the desired wingspan by the drawing original one -in the same units, of course- and check the result.

2.- If the result is higher than 1.00, you need magnification as follow: every unit added to the 1 equals to 100% and then you have to add the two decimals to that figure as tens and units. In your actual case you need from the originak drawing to your desired wingspan 120/28 = 4.29, this is 3 units over 1 and then 29 as decimals making a total magnification of 329%.

3.- If the result is smaller than 1.00, you need reduction as follow: substarct to 100% the two decimals as tens and units. For example, if you get 0.65 that equals to a 100-65 = 35% reduction.

Please, bear in mind not every copying/resizing machine work with a floating or free magnification/reduction value and it is possible you may need playing a little with actually available values till finding the best option for getting the dessired size.

For the final sizes you comment the value should be: 120/104 = 1.15 or 15% magnification as a porcentage. Hope this helps you.

Finally a last word regarding different spellings we have, at least, in Spanish lenguage but think that also is appropriate for English: It is just not the same magnifiying a 200% (the copy is 3 times the original size) than magnifiying to 200% (the copy is just 2 timer the original size).

Best Regards,

ORIGINAL: FenderBean

ahhh got to love opinions can always count someone here to give you a ugly one. Thats a public forum though

No disrespect to your building efforts, however, i think these things and all it's cousins are some of the ugliest warbirds ever conceived. No Ferrari in the styling dept for sure. [:@]

Thanks for the link that will come in handy when I detail out the YF23

John Travis

I agree with you and like I said some may not like the YF23 just like some may not like the P51
But that's my opinion

I have a small foamy version( Lanxian model) who fly very well on 6S and 2 70 mm fan. I love the shape of this elegant plane, mine is small and you have to be 100% on , sometime very hard to see....
