Swept wings P-80




How is this for a plastic version? P-80 is the Airfix mold. Wings are from a Hasegawa Fuji T-1A. I had to cut the front bottom portion of the P-80 wing out to fill the gap. After some sawing and filing, I think it provides an acceptable transition.  No one is going to see it but I did this to address my OCD.

The T-1A root chord is almost the same length as the original.







I also have some donor F-86 kits and the Tamiya 1/100 A-6A kits are on order so the other versions will also be built.
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Hmm, start from a T-33 fuselage but still use a F-80 cockpit and canopy and you'd be close to Lockheed's proposed F-80E.

I'm not familiar with P-80E Evan, Do you have a picture?

But you got me thinking. What if I:

A. removed the wing fences
B. removed all the trim tabs
C. rounded off the vertical and horiz stabilizers
D. moved the horiz stabilizers about 1/2 way up the vertical stabilizer
E. added some cool pointy tip tanks from a 1/128 Constellation





I think I have a baby XF-90.

There's now a 3-view in the P-80/T-33 thread in inspiration.

Wings and tail in my drawing come from Airfix Gina.

BTW, your proposal (with low tail plane) looks just beautiful
