Build Log: TamJets F-16 with JetCat P-20 (part1)

after playing around with various airframe options for the new JetCat P-20 I have decided to start building on a TamJets F-16 in 1/12 scale (below videos helped me a lot to make up my mind ) and plant the little turbine into this model.

Other candidates for the P-20:
- Jet Teng BaeHawk
- Jet Teng L-39
- Schuebeler Bae Hawk
- Schreiner/Savex L-39
- Aero-naut Panther
- Aero-naut Rafale (120mm fan version – not sure if this will work with the P-20 as the pipe might reduce power to much….)

Some videos of the Tam F-16 with P-20 in action:

 

The following components will be installed in the F-16 (they can be found on in our webshop):

Servos:
- Tailerons: Hitec HS-5665MH (2x)
- Rudder: Hitec HS-85MG (1x)
- Steering: Hitec HS-225MG (1x)

Retracts: Tamjet Mini Air Retracts (4mm wire)
Brakes: TamJets Brake (4mm wire)
Wheels: MPI Wheels with 2” for the mains and 1.5” for the nose
Retract Valve: Airpower EV-2U (1x)
Brake and Door: Airpower EV-1U (2x)

Turbine: JetCat P-20
Tank: Dubro 20oz Tank
Air Trap: TamJets Airtrap tank

RX: JR RD921 9 channel 2.1 Ghz

 

Starting the build – First Task:

- Cut gear doors
- Install Retracts, doors and cylinders

TamJets F-16 with P-20

I first tried to cut the doors with a saw but had some issues with chipped paint so I switched to a hot knife which worked much better.
Although my version of the F-16 was already from the new batch (with some additional re-enforcements to the retract mount), I decided to add one more layer of carbon to the front of the spar (to much I guess but it looks good….kind of…… ).

I also added the additional block to the wing mounting area (although it would not be required).

Gear door hinges installed and air cylinders fitted (the nose door cylinder comes from a TamJets Gear door install kit, the main cylinders are Airpower 12mm stroke cylinders).

T-45 Goshawk (Jet Teng)

The T-45 Goshawk is a fully carrier-capable version of the Hawk Mk.60. It was developed for the United States Navy (USN) for use in training.
The Goshawk’s origins began in the mid-1970s, when the US Navy began looking for replacement for its T-2 and TA-4 trainers.
The US Navy started the VTXTS advanced trainer program in 1978.British Aerospace and McDonnell Douglas proposed a version of the Hawk and were awarded the T 45 contract in 1981.

As the Hawk had not been designed for carrier operations, numerous modifications were required for Navy carrier use, including improvements to the low-speed handling characteristics and a reduction in the approach speed.
Other changes were strengthened airframe, more robust and wider landing gear with catapult attachment and an arresting hook.
It features a two-wheel nose landing gear.

The Goshawk first flew in 1988 and became operational in 1991.JTM T-45 full composite
BAE Systems manufactures the fuselage aft of the cockpit, the air inlets, the vertical stabilizer of the T-45 at Samlesbury, and the wings at Brough, England.
Boeing manufactures the remainder of the aircraft and assembles them in St. Louis, Missouri.

On 16 March 2007 the 200th airframe was delivered to the US Navy. Their requirements call for 223 aircraft, and the T-45 service is slated to continue until at least 2035.

Jet Teng T-45 by Rolf This JTM (Jet Teng) full composite T-45 was build by Rolf.
Aside from additional scale features Rolf also added full navigation lights and afterburner simulation to his model.

The full composite plane is powered by a 90mm EDF Fan unit, 8S Lipo Battery and features a retractable undercarriage.
The model is further equipped with flaps to slow it down for landings.

The model has the following dimensions:

Scale………………………..: 1/9
Wing Span…………………: 1110mm (43.6”)
Length………………………: 1320mm (52”)
