Request RF6 Aircraft Here

Please put all requests for RF6 aircraft in this thread. Modelers like me prefer to look in one thread for request ideas. When people make their own standalone request threads, they get lost over time when the request isn't immediately picked up. Considering how long it takes to make a model for RF, most requests don't get picked up immediately.

Please provide 3-views, specs, and other reference pictures with your request. This will greatly improve your chances of getting a modeler's attention.

I figured it would be easier to make a 1/10 scale model if you have the full scale dimensions. :eek:

I don't think the weight would be 1/10th, if it was an RC model.

You are aware you didn't originally provide the name, right?

Kmot, I'll look into the A-12. I found some good pics through the USAF museum site. They don't have the aircraft, but I did see a few good pics, including a cockpit. Sound good, Maj?

I calculated the required specs for the IAR 80 down to 1/5th scale, and eddited
my request post. (1/10th scale seems too small.)

Brields, real life measurements may help if the request is for a specific scale. I've never been concerned with real life measurements. I speak only for myself, though. Your weight is waaay off. Truthfully, it's all in the wing loading. That plane should probably have a wingloading of 30 or so. That can be manipulated in RF.

I've seen videos of this beast flying and it's awesome! I wish I had enough time to do it. I might be able to begin a build in January, but it will most likely take me a while to build it since I'm juggling other projects. It would be awesome to have this in the sim none-the-less.

Great request indeed. A front view isn't necessary either. Most of the freelance work I do is done without front views supplied.

Wow! Agreed, that is one sexy Goblin. I like that extended fuselage way back into the boom.
Thanks for volunteering Matt! :D
