    Everyone

    I have decided to release my Stealth Fighter Prototype beta model to everyone to enjoy. I think the rather simplistic design of the model makes it rather easy to build. And since it was easy to design, it should be an easy build.

    I have included a diagram to show where the various parts (three parts pages) go. There were a few things I figured might cause some concern in the build process and have included a brief section of explanation.

    This is important...for those of you who don't read things like what I mention above...green arrow marked fold lines are for MOUNTAIN folds...red arrow marked fold lines are for VALLEY folds.

    I hope you enjoy my first every original aircraft model design.

    Have fun!!!

    I didn't like the coloring, so I did a repaint using acrylics.. A little too glossly, but I like it.... A very light coat of "Future" to seal in the weathering done with pastel chalks.. Thanks for the model..

    Looks great sitting on my PC.. Sorry for the blurry photo, was hard to focus on the subject...

    Seriously though, I am working on the Have Blue XST aircraft, item 1. I'm having a bit of a problem with the exhaust area design currently, but the main shape of the aircraft is finished.

    When I complete the kit, I'll release it as an open beta for anyone and everyone to attempt. Until then, I'll continue trying to find good exhaust area info.

    And for now, this Stealth Prototype will have to suffice.
