pic did not appear ..file too large :sad:Juke, I currently have the width of the images set to maximum of 600pixels, the file size is something like 140k though.. (even though I've not updated the information about that on the image forum)

I'll probably be upping the size allowed on the images to 800x pixels soon.. err.. In fact, I just went in and did it.

Max image width 800 pixels
Maz image file size 140400 bytes

That should accomodate most images.

You should be able to produce an 800x wide image within the 140k size.. with good compression results (not overcompressed)

Try again with the above guidelines in mind.

Hey Wayne,

Thanks for the larger photo size. I'm not crazy enough to change me already uploaded photos (I don't know if I even can), but I do appreciate the adjustment.

BTW, the baord is looking better every day.

Wayne !

Thanks, I went and reduced the size of my file. :) Let's try it now.
I did make 1/12 scale model of it and some changes were made after that. First I lowered the elevator.
Wingtips and position of the wing is also different from previous. :yes:

Fuel is supposed to be housed mainly in the wings ( on contrary to the Tsunami concept, which had no fuel in the wing ). Will there be enought of it to complete the race. If not, then the fuselage has to be extended and some fuel housed in the space after the engine.

Juke: Put electric power in your model and get rid of that greasy, noisy motor. Check out http://home.fuse.net/ryan/. See the Rare Bear kit. This is a great building platform. FYI, Peas

Peashooter !

Very nice site. I'll pass the link on..prices are moderate too. They are slightly smaller than 1/12 scale I assume.
I am actually going to go for a bigger piston prop engine to see how it flies at actual intented power to weight ratio..somewhere over 1 hp/kilo.
I guess it's like a speeding bullet ( scale speed near mach 3.0 ). :shocked:
I tested my model can withstand +20 G:s stresses ( I wonder if I can stand the stress to fly it...and land it safely ) :eek13: .

Just to get some idea where the " winning formula " is based on I lay down some profiles here.

Instead of moving the wing back here the fuse has been shortened to obtain the ideal cg !

Juke,

you're being careful about where you get the images you are reposting here I assume??

Well sure Wayne, if you say so.
I did mention where the images are ( sorta advertisement for free ). We did have discussion before and I did take take notice of it.
Should I with draw my last ( previous ) post ? :confused:
Would take to long time to draw those planes.

We simply have to be very strict about this rule, it's not only the rule, it's the only right way to do things.

Yes, if you do not have permission to use the illistrations you have posted, please, obtain permission, or, delete the images at once.

Thanks for understanding.

JTJuke, you still should be able to delete the photos.. Let me know if you can not. I think click on image manager for the post will allow the deletion.

Ok Wayne !

This pic is 100 % my drawning ( Bearcat is from my R/C design ).
I don't have a pic of a Mustang, but the P51D is 6 feet longer than the inline design presented here and my racer is also about a foot or two shorter than a Yak-3 and Tsunami.

Bear weight is 8700 lbs and TS II around 5000 lbs ( Tsunami's takeoff weight was way under 6000 lbs ).
I think a small enough Merlin powered racer could eventually beat the Rare Bear in an attempt for the world speed record.

I had an idea of using a large dia 2 blade prop. Well these are all just dreams. Any comments on this short TS 2 ?

Thanks Juke, I appreciate the effort and your understanding of the "rules" of copyright.

Well Matt it was in Air International by Frank Mormillo and I also talked with Eric Ahlstroem about this matter some years back.

The P51H only weighed 4150 lbs empty..I see no reason why they'd done any heavier plane. Kinda easy to believe when you know this.

How is his DART-project coming along ?

I got some figures mixed here.

XP-51F was 5635 lbs 2558 kg empty.
P-51 H was 7040 lbs 3196 kilos empty :rolleyes: .

Well I checked my data and Frank Mormillo says in the issue of AI that Tsunami T/O was 3150 kg ( marginally less than the Bear !? ).
I was then later informed from Reno that what I stated above.

Tsunami may have weighed 7000 lbs at take off. :)

Do we know for sure ?

Well since it has been so quiet here for a long time lets get some pics. I'll start with my TS 2 model photos from 2003. :)

I think I just have to re-engine this with a degree of downthrust. It has to fly.
