New F1 tunnel build
« on: December 14, 2013, 01:15:19 PM »


This is my latest project 44" F1 inboard
Based around previous design with some minor changes and all new looks and new fake OB aswell ,improved center pod and canopy not just for looks but for improved room around the engine and airflow and easier to install and work on
Some hydro and aero dynamics changes have been made for improved handling and more stable flight when at full throttle and rougher windier and rougher conditions
Hull and OB constructed

Hi Daz

Your photos shown in this topic show outstanding attention to detail!
WOW!

I can't even imagine how much work has gone into this project. I will much look forward to seeing the finished hull fitted out and ready to run. Even more some vid clips of it when running. :-)) :-))
