Default scratch build

Looking for something different to build and ordered BD 10 plans designed by Col Bob Thacker. Friend of mine reduced the plans to
78 inches long. Plans were not scale and I decided to have some fun and design my own jet off his plans. F-15 intakes are my
favorite look with twin tails. Intakes were modified to look like a F-15. Canopy and aft top deck fiberglass were laid up off molds
I made. Front fuse section is 1/2 pink foam sanded to shape then covered with I/8 balsa. Retracts are electric converted by Down
and Locked. Aft fuse is 3/16 balsa on sides and 1/8 balsa top and bottom. Wings and tail services are foam cut and sheeted with
3/32. Plan on installing Jet Munts 80 for power. Next on deck is to fit ailerons and flaps to wing and prep for glass.
