Or do the flaps you cut off still have enough length to fill the gap, even with a bit cut off for the right-angled end?Cheers.

Quote from: PR19_Kit on January 01, 2019, 01:18:02 PMNow that's different, and very interesting. Perhaps a SAAB built A-7?

Quote from: kerick on January 01, 2019, 02:34:13 PMNow this is an awesome idea! I had never thought of a delta wing A-7. It may be too late in your build but there is as the fuselage stretch that was trialed in the A-7F prototype. About 1.5 feet before and after the wing to allow for an F100 engine. I haven't looked into this in years so my recollection may be off. Just my 2 cents worth. This will be cool either way.

Quote from: Scotaidh on January 02, 2019, 01:49:29 AMI cut out both flaps. In the process of test fitting what went best where I may have swapped sides or simply flipped them down-side up. Whichever it was, those are the same flaps and they're the original length. I did have to trim off a small triangular piece at the outboard ends of each flap, but other than that, they're original. The wings are still the original length. I had to keep them at the shoulder to allow for under-wing stores. I'll probably end up moving the Sidewinder rails in favour of the canards.
