-Saab-37 Viggen in SEAD configuration (don't know the name it will have because I don't know how to say "electronic recce" in Swedish!

PD7,

I think the designation would be something like ASk 37E (given that the Sk 37E is a Sk 37 variant (ie two seater - I'm assuming that is what you have in mind) modified for ECM) and you would be giving it an attack capability (hence the 'A').  I hope that helps - look here for more info.

Regards,

Greg

Well, all my building is going really slow.

Today I did pick up one of those new Hobby Boss kits, I got the Hurricane II and it looks like a lot of fun to build.

That Hurricane is about all I have in mind for completed stuff in the NEAR future. I primarily bought it just so I could say I did complete something.

Gary F.:   Would the nose section from a F-5F fit on the X-29?   



Just a thought,
Daryl J.
Daryl J,

  From what I've seen around here, it would work just fine .... just have to find one to use!  Also looks like the front of the RoG/ESCI F-5B would work fine too, but I think the F-5F front end looks better  ;)
 
The fit would be no problem, all F-5 variants use a standard bulkhead interface just behind the cockpit to mate with the rest of the fuselage and since the X-29 uses a F-5A nose, there should be no problem there.

F-5B front end has minimal room for radar (more along the lines of just a weather radar as on the T-38).  The F-5F is a fully operational aircraft.  Now, if one was truly, masochistically whiffy, you could combine a set of F-5F & F-5B front ends to do a three-seat courier/staff transport aircraft.

elmayerle,

  If I can find an F to put on the X-29, it will be a combat ac.  If not, the F-5B front will go on, and it will be done up in USN TPS colors (test pilot school white and orange, not the tactical paint scheme grays)
  And, I've stashed away your VIP 3 seater idea ...

regards,
Gary F

VIP 3-seat approach will also work with a F-20, you know. ;)

An idea has been slowly forming for my next big project that involves a P-51 and B-25.
This sounds intriguing. Tell us more...

I'm going to be working on:

Ostfront Kanonvogel Val
Sea Lightning (wing folds, 4 blade props, Pacific cammo, etc.)
RAF Wyvern
Simon

On the bench at the minute

The, might end up as, Hungarian GR.3 painted but no definite plan yet.
A civilianised Harrier T.10 (weapons systems and such removed, pretty colour pending).
A monstrosity that was a Heyford but is slowly becoming a gunship.

I've just got an old (started) Airfix Catalina off EB and I'm test fitting bigger engines. It's gonna be scary and loud in the front of this one  :)

Actually there's a load of other stuff but I don't see any of them getting touched anytime soon. :(

Something I definitley want to start is my planned PB-26J which is a patrol version of the A-26 Invader...

Then there's all the other planes on my whiff spread sheet  :wacko:

Followed by:

Rotodyne- FAA COD
Vanguard -maritime patrol aircraft

Yannick! You wanna know what I'm up to?

Well, right now I've finished the structure of my Aurora/Heller Yak-3, helping Lana bash a 60s Airfix 1:72 109 into god-knows what ("I don't know what I'm building, I just am!" she says), watching her do her Kiwi Corsair as well.

Waiting for sufficient funds to buy decals to allow me to finish the Project AFC P-40K, parts are inbound from the States to let me complete the Tora, Tora, Tora Zero, and Lana and I are set to do our Polikarpov I-153 Chaikas (my first riggging project, eek!).

Incoming still are my birdcage Corsair (another Project AFC aircraft), a box of mystery kits for Lana and I from RotorheadTX (c'mon Tony, I'm bursting with anticipation over here!) and the Airfix Corsair which I'm gonna retrofy!


All is go here dudes! Stay tuned! Got some pics of today's efforts for y'all later too....

Well...
Once my Telford projects are done, I really need to get on with my Renault Magnum. It's been sitting for far too long.

When that's finished:
- SR.177 vacform (Dutch Navy?)
- TSR.2 ('70s Dutch air force?)
- Tornado F.3
- Tornado GR.1 (Instant sunshine)
- Yak-141
- Sea Harrier FA.2
- Tornado FGR.5
- FB-22

and way too many other ideas...

Once the Telford builds are out of the way. I think i may do a couple more TSR2 to round off the options together with one with all the CMK sets once they are released.

Scratch Building wise i'm not too sure where things will be going, none will be new projects built to completion but rather recreating some of my previous builds as masters <_<.

I have a feeling too that i may get bullied into recreating my current Telford build one it is completed...... :(
