Default Ferrari of Jets YF-23

Hello one and all this is my version of the Ferrari of jets YF 23 . No its not from Mike Downs plans that are scaled up. But my own orginial version. My plans are that it will be using between twin P-120-160 or if you want a rocket on wheels then twin P-200. Please do not ask me for plans as I do not have any this is being done with 3 views and some dimentions thats it. Also do not ask about about kits as I do not know what the actual cost will be too early in the project.

Invertmast (Thoms F14) check out his thread lots of information on their. He will be cutting me some bulkheads as he know what excatlly what I need and want. I do not have the tools to make them in my apt. The only current issue I have is trying to figure out what the airfoil should be. I have spoken with Thomas and give me some ideas that will be trial and error like everyone know scratch building is a process and a science. I hope to get some more info in the next couple of days so I can get started with a rough draft printed at Kinko's

A few tears ago a YF 23 "Black Widow" 04, (there about) showed up at either Best of the West or Prado.I believe it was turbine powered .

IMHO .. Sleekest [8D] Aircraft ...Smooth..................SMOOTH............

UPDATE....

I am enlarging the information I have then sending it off to get my wood bulkheads done.
I will be working on several ideas.

  1. Sheet plank then fiberglass
  2. Use pink or blue foam then fiberglass
  3. Just use PVC sheet as planking
Each one has it pluses and negatives and cost.Remember we will be making a plug the a mold
We must make sure we maintain a true and align plug. Also we must make sure we try to be able
to make sure there is a lot of information on the plug, hatches. Remember there is no panel lines or rivets
etc. This was state of the art. Stay tuned....

Yes she is. They also tried to sell the F-23. But the Navy instead went with F-18 Super Hornet
On the Navy version the aresting hook wood come out a set of inclosed doors. But then again
we have the F-35 but thats another story

Dave is very busy with his real job, he has developed this jet through three protypes.

Actually Mike Downs started the project and I think after 4 years Dave purchased everything from Mike and then if I am not mistaken David has 3 proto types

I totally agree this would have been a drastic design for the military
But then again no one has seen then Aurora or Black Mantra

UPDATE

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

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. [:@]
