I was thinking up a hypersonic aircraft idea and I'm wondering if anybody is willing to help out?


Sincerely,
Robyn *who secretly wonders if she can get somebody like Jose F, or Apophenia for the project*

How about you make a start yourself rather than constantly asking others to do the work for you.  This way, you do the work your self (which gives you the satisfaction of creating it), have a better idea of what you are thinking of  and get to practise.  The more you do the better one gets.  Others may then either offer input/advice or even help you with the drawing.

I have a few basic images which I have stored away on my computer.  I could do a crude drawing when I get around to it to illustrate what I'm looking for in basic terms

A crude drawing from AutoCAD exported to MS Paint for color was how I started.  Your first few profiles will be bad.  Mine certainly were!  You have to start somewhere, though!  Good luck and feel free to post on here if you have any questions!

I agree with Logan, below is my first profile. Take that first step, we all have our own artistic vision and where better to share it than here :)

A V-22 in US Forest Service airborne tanker markings, it could be a natural in between what conventional helicopters and do and the passes by faster moving large piston and turbine aircraft.

Logan, your drawing inspired me to make a twin-boom derivative... (made with Corel PhotoPaint6):

I'm happy to have provided inspiration. I revisited that design a little later and here's an example of one of those updated profiles. Keep in mind that this one is still over 8 years old.

Along the lines of my last request, Japanese V-22s.  I can visualize at least three, one on the OD scheme their transport V-107s use, one in a SAR scheme, and a "maritime assault" one in the two-tone blue used by their over-water strikes (F-4EJ, F-1, F-2).  I suspect you could several variations on the SAR scheme.

Since the squadron's 100 anniversary is coming up in 1918, I could see the 95th Reconnaissance Squadron, which currently operates "Rivet Joint" aircraft painting up on in special markings, derived, say, from those the squadron's P-26 aircraft wore in the 1930's, yellow trim on light blue with the red, white, and blue rudder stripes and yellow wings.  That could make for a marvelous scheme on a Rivet Joint airframe.

Almost out of RN school and about to resume modeling, been a loooong time...  :) I've got a couple of Whifs ideas I'd like to complete for the Extended Life group build.  I'm looking to build an Irish Air Corps A-4 Skyhawk & Mirage F.1; both post-modernization.  I tried the search function for some suitable schemes but not finding anything.  I was thinking of the following schemes:

1) overall medium/dark/olive green (like Danish Drakens or late RNZAF A-4's)
2) olive/medium green over grey (similar to current IAAC camo scheme)
3) wraparound medium green and grey (like French Mirage F.1CT's) or
4) wraparound Euro 1 scheme (like RNZAF A-4's)

I'd like the A-4 and Mirage to have matching schemes

Any other ideas?  Any profiles I might have missed that would be good inspiration?

Thanks, cheers and happy modeling, Bryan

Just found these beautiful photographs of the Australian CAC CA-31-007 mock-up at Australian National Aviation Museum, Moorabbin Sept 2014 (Photo by Brendan Cowan) at:
 
http://www.adf-gallery.com.au/gallery/CAC-CA-31/07_09_2014_CA31_007_Brendan_Cowan_0050

Dam! The last time I visited ANAM Moorabbin, this mock-up was in pieces and stored unceremoniously in a corner  :(

I would sincerely appreciate anyone who was able and willing to do a couple of detailed profiles of the CA-31 design in both proposed single and two-seat configurations – armed in the ground attack and lightweight fighter (gun pod on centreline, and a couple of Aim-9 Sidewinder's) configuration!
I envisage this lightweight ground attack / fighter being employed in Citizen Air Force Squadrons of:   
No 21 (City of Melbourne) Squadron
No 22 (City of Sydney) Squadron
No 23 (City of Brisbane) Squadron
No 24 (City of Adelaide) Squadron
No 25 (City of Perth) Squadron
(Thanks GTX  ;))
The CA-31 would complement the regular RAAF Mirage III's in a high/low type of mix, as well as performing advance training and lead-in fighter training.

I can also see the likes of India (instead of HAL Ajeet!), Malaysia and Singapore potentially employing the CA-31 design as a cost-effective lightweight ground attack fighter, if it was marketed properly by Australian Government  ;)

I'm sorry, but I have had no luck finding high res drawings  :(
But I will post what I have!

Thanks in advance

and a couple more pics....

If possible, I would also appreciate the incorporation of the French MATRA JK-200 weapons-drop tank systems, which combines 313lt fuel, 18 x 68mm FFAR and 4 x 250 lb bombs! This will afford the CA-31 to carrying a weapons load of 1815 kg on its four wing and two fuselage hardpoints!
