Title: New F1 tunnel build
Post by: F1 madness 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

That is impressive, and thank you for sharing that. I just learnt more about mold making in this thread than I had got from all of the research I had done before.
Look forward to seeing it o the water.

Meant to add. Interesting geometry of the stern gear. Look forward to having a good look at this "in the flesh" as they say at the lakeside.
