One of the missions the US Army was looking into with the Osprey before they pulled out of the program was the electronic recon mission,currently preformed by the RC-12 Guardrail family.So that might be interesting to modify one up like that with all the lumps and bumps.

Also,the JGSDF Osprey,I have one in the 3 tone camo on my profile thread.

Have heard this about Aussie V-22s:

Would be a Chinook replacement, supposedly for SF insertion.

Rattling around in my head, I have plans to make one in US Coast Guard white and orange as a SAR bird, possibly with a zodiac to launch off the ramp?

I like the looks of the Canadian SAR birds in yellow, that'd be cool, too.

Someday, I really like to take 2 1/48 Ospreys, and a C-123 Provider and make a 4 engined tilt rotor transport.  USMC or USAF markings?  I'm not sure...

I've got to paint my AV-22 Spectre-type gunship.  (It's only been, what, two years or so) I'm going with black up to just under the wings, then MARPAT across the topsides.  Just can't find the time to get to the bench lately.

What if you put ducted turbofans like the A-10, S-3, etc. on the wingtips instead of the turboprops? You'd have to sleek it up a lot, but for whatefer reason, a tilt-jet just sounds sweet(and dangerous) to me. Ok, ok......I'll go back to my hole now...

I found this article by Mike Hirschberg on a Quad Tilt Rotor while doing some research on logistics things.  It has a couple of intersting images of the four rotor aircraft you are describing.
A marvelous, tempting concept. I also fell for it.

I had seen that article as well, that helped to inspire me, too.  I'm really enamored with the tiltrotor concept.

Rafael, you've done some amazing work with paper and resin.  Thanks for the link.

I haven't seen any -22s flying around here in HMX markings, but you'd have to think that eventually they will be replacing some of the older -46s and -53s with the Osprey at some point.

I did like the picture Rafe, it kind of reminded me of this beast.

drawn in 1958 she is a 100 seat airliner with a All up Weight of 110,000lbs

the drawing is out of 'Stuck on The Drawing Board', all about unbuilt U.K civil pojects.  It is also in Putnams 'English Electric Aircraft'.

Since this topic is about the V-22 Osprey, it would help to get back on that subject again, so with that in mind I give you the following food for thought:

Flying Leathernecks Decals for the first combat deployment of the V-22 Osprey. (Thank you Dave Roof!)


Check the national insignia.  Notice something missing from it? No center bar in the stars and bars.


What about decreasing the prop length by making them 5-6 bladed?
No need to decrease rotor blade diameter.  The perfect solution for creating a five blade rotor for the Osprey is to use the rotors from a pair of the Italeri 1/72nd scale RAH-66 Commanche kits on the 1/48th scale V-22 kit.  The five blade rotor is a perfect candidate for improving the appearance of the plain vanilla V-22 kit.  Of course this means that you will be sacrificing a pair of out of production RAH-66 Commanche kits for the rotor parts to upgrade your V-22.

Can't remember 100% but I think when I did read about Japan's interest,it was the Marine and Army.The Navy was interested in it as a rescue/minesweeping platform.This role has now went to the EH-101,so thats out,for now.The Army was looking at it as a replacement/compliment for their Chinooks.

Found a link over at Secret Projects to an article from the early 90s, the JMSDF wanted some for SAR (UV-22J?) and some more for ASW (SV-22?).  Mossie has done some profiles over in that forum.

(digging up a really old post re: jet-engined Osprey)

Problem: if one engine goes out you're dead. On the Osprey the engines are cross-linked, so one can drive the other's prop. Can't do that with a jet. If you're in level flight you might be able to hit full rudder, kill the other engine and crash-land, but if you're in hover it's over and down.  :( 

Using the technology from the F-35B, it should be possible to crosslink two turbofans. If you drive just the front stages (ie the 'fan' part of the turbofan) you'd get a fair amount of thrust...
