Thanks Don and Ron.

Actually I've never used Pepakura. The only programs I use are Rhino and Corel Draw.

What about one with the Boar's head design like the Thunderbolt II?

The rules of the contest state that in order to be considered I have to see a colored 3-view of your proposed scheme. Not being very well read about the P-47 I don't know what that Boars head looks like.

In other news the design is coming much more slowly than I would like. My need to get things to look right is again slowing me down. I think things will go more quickly once I finish the super charger intake. Beleive it or not there is some fairly complex curvature going on down there and I want to make it look good as well as accurate (given the extraordinarily scant reference material). I spent a fair amount of time on it yesterday and finally figured out how I want to do it. But unfortunately doing it going to take a little time as well.

Edit: SteveO I didn't see the II after thunderbolt in your post, sorry. Going back to the rules you have to submit a 3view. Show me how you think it should look.

One hurdle down

Just finalized the geometry of the super charger intake. There is a lot of stuff all coming together in one place. The wing root fairs into the fuselage as well as the the intake and the intake has to fair into the fuselage if that makes sense.

Now that that's done I'm starting on the wings and landing gear.

Need help on the wing

As those of you familiar with the T-Bolt know the leading edge is straight until about 66-75% span then it goes into elliptical planform. My question is this: At the point it starts its elliptical planform does the airfoil change? I've spent a lot of time looking at all the pics I can google and it looks like the thickness ratio changes. Can anyone comment?

This is what I was aiming at. I could whip up a little better schematic as this is preliminary.

Will,

I may not have any time to do anything further (as I'd like) so here's a preliminary entry for the contest...

I was hoping to add some flags and a yellow rose along with a clever name for the nose. Also thought that OD wings with yellow wingtips and stripes of some sort would be fun.
Sort of a post-war, Korean-era Air National Guard machine with some custom markings that some WWII ace might've put on his plane in memory of his old aircraft.

As you may have seen I started on the military repaint of the Super Corsair figuring it would be quick and it hasn't been though the progress I have made has come faster than it normally does. So this is on hold till the Super Corsair is done.

Even if you never produced the model, the virtual model shows your expertise with Rhino. It is always nice to see you builds. Your a good source of what can be done with Rhino. it is amazing how many engineers I know who don't think Rhino is serious software. I have designed my Barn and a recumbent bike and recumbent trike (not models, real ones) with Rhino. Your subjects choices are great too.
