Double your pleasure, Double your fun

Recommended Posts

Double%20Trouble1_zps6q8iopmj.jpg  Essentially, I'm just swapping the fuselage fuel tank with a merlin. It would be like flying constantly with a full fuel tank.(you just limit

  the violent maneuvering) The center of gravity would be slightly aft. :piliot: Also, the prop blades would have to be reversed, and I would'nt need a spinner on the aft one.

             This is just to show you the engineering so far. :D  We will do lots more wind tunnel testing.   For instance, should both propellers turn in the same direction? :shrug:

        

                   This is going to be fun.  Cake and ice cream for every one!!

I think you just hit the MUSTANG-JACKPOT, this should be very interesting, looking forward to more "refreshing" ideas... :hmmm: :hmmm: :piliot:

Hmmmm, now that's a brain twister. :D

 

Tricycle gear on a Mustang? Now that I gotta see :frantic:  :frantic:  :frantic:

 

Are you planing a second engine or are you going to pack the nose with gear & 50cals and put the fuel into the wings?

 

Lots of possibilities on this one thats for sure.

 

Looking forward to what you come up with.

     Thanks Jack

   Thanks ScanmanDan, It will be a Pusher/ Puller, with a tail wheel, and Zoukei-Mura wings . Also a malcom hood canopy. That's the dream.

Hi y'all.

    Hardcore, Prancin' Nance II would be too much of an airplane for the USAAF, probably racer livery.

    Starting with the Trumpy fuselage, my cut line is between 1/32 and 1/16 of an inch away from the edge line and then I can 'sneak up' on the actual edge.

   Prancin' Nance II will need a 'floating tail', that is, a stabilon, an all moving horizontal control surface. With hydraulic boost. :coolio:  Indulge me please, after all, this is supposed

     to be fun isn't it? B) PNII9_zpsnrkm2xvc.jpg

        I glued the horizontal stab to the elevator and sanded the trailing edge to something acceptable,(the left one is sanded)

         PNII11_zpsgi3p4fzq.jpg

    I used a rivet line on the horizontal tail to make a line 90 degrees to the inboard end, then used that line to stick them to double sided tape making sure there at 90 degrees,

               then started a 'pilot' hole with a pin vise, and then drilled the hole with the drill press. The dremel will melt some plastic, even on as slow as it will go so I drill very fast.

 Oh, I forgot to mention, I cut off the tabs on the end of the stabs and glued them into the slots on the fuselage,

      after drilling the holes.

           Thank you!

                 See ya
