    Paragon mods

    Paragon's SR-71 is nicely done, like all his airplanes. Nice graphics. As usual, I made a few mods to make it easier (for me) to get everything together correctly.


    I eliminated the long slots on the fuselage and nacelle parts to help them hold their shape more easily. I put several little slots in the fuselage and engine nacelles to take flat laminated card spars (three layers for the front chine spars, five layers for the wings).


    I separated the wing into inner and outer wing skins and glued them separately (edge glued to the fuselage/nacelles and flat to the spars. After getting the top and bottom on I pinched the edges together to close up the wings.

    Should make nice give-aways for the next Air Force Association Teacher Workshop (guest speaker will be a retired USAF SR-71 pilot and his wife, an AF Reserve weather officer with the Hurricane Hunters).
