Thank you very much papermate, this is very useful for many. To start one of your Tracker will serve as a guide in an upcoming project.

No.129 Bell X-22, Bruno's design, originally 1/300

No.129 Bell X-22,
according to Wiki, is an American V/STOL X-plane with four tilting ducted fans. Takeoff was to selectively occur either with the propellers tilted vertically upwards, or on a short runway with the nacelles tilted forward at approximately 45°. Additionally, the X-22 was to provide more insight into the tactical application of vertical takeoff troop transporters such as the preceding Hiller X-18 and the X-22's successor, the Bell XV-15. Another program requirement was a true airspeed in level flight of at least 525 km/h (326 mph; 283 knots).

In 1962, the United States Navy announced their request for two prototype aircraft with V/STOL capability, powered by four ducted fan nacelles. Bell Helicopters already had extensive experience with VTOL aircraft and was able to utilize an already developed test mockup. In 1964 the prototype, internally referred to by Bell as Model D2127, was ordered by the Navy and received the X-22 designation. It was unveiled at an event in Niagara Falls in May 1965.

Three-bladed propellers were mounted on four wings and, synchronized through a wave-interconnection system, were connected to four gas turbines which, in turn, were mounted in pairs on the rear wings. Maneuvering was achieved by tilting the propeller blades in combination with control surfaces (elevators and ailerons), which were located in the thrust stream of the propellers.

Now back to the build -
Normal recycle paper was used thus revealing printed graphics on the reverse side of the paper. This build was first started as a tester to see how best to build it. I have to split the fuselage by cutting off the red cockpit/nose part first so as to make it easier to build the nose section and then re-join the fuselage. It finally came through and lessons learnt to build it better (or smaller) next time. The front duct fans can be rotated either vertically or horizontally at the same time and so can the rear ones (the trick is Papermate's secret, haha). The tube on the nose is a 1mm diameter acrylic fine strut lengthened over a cigarette lighter fire. Got it just in one go with the lighter, cool.

And now, roll the pictures.

After double checking with the spec given by Wiki on Bell X-22 (Length 12.07m), the scale of this model should be about 1/144 as it measures about 8.3 cm long. Sorry about that, so I'll come back with one that is actually 1/200.............later.

Very nice, the tilting of the rotors is a real challenge!
I never thought about removing the cockpit!
Looking forward for your true 1/200 scale.
And thank you so much for sharing.

ps: as the old carpenter said,
"measure twice and cut once"

Wonder if Admin can change the title of this thread to NAVY & MILITARY planes in 1/200 as I would like to add more non-navy military planes on this thread.
