I believe they are boundary layer splitter plates.

They take the boundary layer air from the fuselage which then exits through the grills top and bottom of the intake ducting.

Smooths the air into the engine.

Sail fish, On the model they are the scale inlets. Nice take off and landing on yours. Looks like the K85 is plenty of power. My K80 is rated at 18 pounds of thrust, should be more then enough.

So with everyone telling me the nose cover can blow off, I started a small Modification on mine. 2 pieces of Nyrod glued to the cover. Once the epoxy sets, I will add more nyrod forward of the hatch in line with the pieces on the hatch and 2 longer pieces going aft to the engine bay. Then 2 pieces of 256 piano wire to slide all the way forward and lock in the cover.

Rule # 1 in RC jets:

Listen to Dan Avilla and Jack Diaz

Everything else is noise.

Go to jet meets and see who is flying the most and most “distinguished “ (I mean longest living and beautiful jets in this case) and you will see the truth.

Absolutely agree. Don't know Dan, but met Jack back in 1997 at the JWM and met up again at BITW 2018 - each time it was a pleasure and inspiration!!

What absolute nonsense!

We have some wonderful models in Europe , superbly engineered built and flown.

Paul Dunkley’s exquisite scratch built T45 in UK, , Redo Senn’s Hunter in Switzerland, the Airworld F104 of Tommy Gleisner in Germany, Philip Avonds’ Magister in Belgium to name just four, the equal of ANY and vastly better than most.

Sorry Ravill you are talking absolute rubbish.

So here a few more pictures of the modification to the nose hatch. The rest of the Nyrod is in and once I figure out where components will be I will cut the rod and piano wire to length.

Looking good. I used hex head screws to hold the rear on the nose flex plates down . Made it easier when you break a nose flex plate.

I made at little more progress on the build. I had a 4 channel Unilite system and managed to get all the holes cut and test fit the lights in place. I also built a mount for the landing lights and mounted those to the strut.

Thats cool. I probably would have not done it because of the wing loading but my field is at 5000 ft.

Thanks Guys

Dan, I'm not to worried about the wing loading. The light set is very lite and might be 2 oz's tops. I will have 2 RX batteries so the lights can run off of one of them.

I can assure you USA pilots are better along with our aircraft. WWII proved that S**t, huh? 😜😜

Love my T-33 I have the most flight on it than all my planes POC to fly. Flew it last weekend in heavy cross winds and no problem.

It's an original DF kit converted to EVF.

Hoser,

Looks Good. Get some green oxide paint and paint the inside of the gear doors. It will make it look more scale
