Ken,
Re: the Chinhook. I'd recommend you just make a basic "green" interior with the structure, seats, and various hydraulic dripping mechanisms. The hook has been around for so long, is so useful, and has the load capacity to make it a real mod-w...queen. In a unit I used to work with, every one of their 47s had a different configuration: cargo area, seating, gun mounts, antennae, and even instrument panel.
If you start with the baseline, you can have endless fun releasing each variant as you gather enough information.

I can not wait to see this come together. Thanks Ken for finally designing this most awsome of planes. I look forward to hacking up (I mean building) my own once it's released.

Thanks Billy!

This is exactly the info I need. I think I will build a "starter cart" to sit next to the Blackbird (if there is enough information on the CD).

I am really curious about one of the more peculiar aspects of the Blackbird design, and how it's going to be incorporated into the model.

The beast leaked like a sieve on the runway, and once she got up into the air, and the friction of the airflow over the skin built up, the skin expanded to seal up the airframe. Therefore, there were "corrugations" built into in the titanium skin, to allow for thermal expansion.

How on earth are you going to model these into paper? I'm sure you're going to be successful, but for some reason, I can't get my head around how to do it.

Enquiring minds, and all that.... LOL

If you need any help, Pima air museum has a start cart with their Blackbird, and I could always use an excuse to head back down (yeah right:D:p)

lancer - thats easy - Just build like I do then you will have little gaps. Then to make them fill in you hold it over your head and run around the yard as fast as you can - making jet noises and throwing m-80's to simulate the sonic boom of course

LOL! Sounds like Chris is speaking from personal experience.

Regarding the corrugations for heat expansion.... I will probably study a few dozen pictures to determine the level of "noticeability". If these elements are significant, (in other words, would not look right without them), then I will probably find a way to represent them. If you recall, the X-15A-2 employed a similar pattern of undulating surfaces that looked like your mom's baking pan. I didn't even try to attempt to model these shapes; instead, I created (through trial and error) some graphics that fool the eye - using various shades of gray and black.
