Cool!

Thanks, Ed. I've been using the instruction sheet from a 1:72 plastic model kit to cobble up a 1:48 scale model of the '67 (just couldn't recall the number exactly...) using a drop tank, sheet plastic, tubing and epoxy putty. Hardest thing is making the cart for it! Nice looking little bird, regardless.

Your images are clearer than what I had so it really helps sorting out the small details.

Sorry for going off-topic!

Aye,

that has been the question all along. Pretty sure Nando started with a copyrighted set of plans (on paper) for this project. Reading through the thread, I was able to find a CAD drawing without cross sections but otherwise looked good. Just may have to break down and come up with cross sections through study of pictures.

C5B Surface Model

The C5's surface geometry can be very deceptive but is a good long term project that will improve the talent of any designer that decides to tackle it [including yours truly].

It helps if you have some knowledge of the types of tools Lockheed designers were using to loft the original.

I completed five full versions before arriving at the roughed out envelope below which still needs additional work...,

Best, +Gil

Suggestion on Fan Construction

The following is suggested as one way to implement the bypass turbine blades in the the engines of the C5. Note that the blades can be sliced apart and the folds glued together to create the "blade" effect...,

This is my first time doing this. I might be able to help. I was on the C5A test team and one of the first Crew Chiefs. I may have what you are looking for.
