Quote from: perttime on March 05, 2022, 10:37:29 PMIf I understand correctly, you are thinking of putting the missiles (two of them?) on the lower corners of the rear fuselage. Perhaps overlapping the rear of the wing and the leading edge of the stabilizer.One issue that comes to my mind is the balance of the aircraft. Hanging munitions back there would move the center of gravity back - and releasing them would move CG forward. That could be tricky for keeping the aircraft controllable.Just guessing: that area is probably pretty full of "necessary stuff" creating a little additional space might be necessary.

Quote from: kitnut617 on March 07, 2022, 05:40:15 AMPertti, you've linked to a F-20, which is different to the F-5 at the rear. I've worked on a F-5 (actually a CF-116) and have had a good look up through the engine tunnel. The walls of the fuselage in the rear end are not very thick, plus there's the tail assemble joint in that location too. If anyone has built an Airfix F-5, or has one in the stash, how the tail parts are in the kit is actually how the tail assembly comes off, slanting join line and all ---- Incidentally, the wing attached to the fuselage just like in the kit too plus a large gap under the fuselage which is the wheel bay which is not represented in the kit parts. This is a photo I took of the CF-116 I was working on, the wing is built in one piece, and the 'notch' is the wheel bay area.
