    Nice! In the world of plastic model kit builders we have also longed for the Whirlwind in 1/32 scale. This guy took matters into his own hands. Thought it might interest you.

    Very nice.

    The L/D with flaps even partially lowered seems scarily low (~2).

    I was seeing 1100 bhp per engine in data out, which seems rather a lot.

    Props appear not to be handed.

    There appears to be no exhaust thrust modelling. This can have a significant impact upon the L/D required to obtain the book level speed performance at the top right hand corner of the envelope, since exhaust thrust for ejectors in lbf was typically around 1/10th of the horsepower generated.

    Aerofoils only appear to have been produced for one Reynolds number. Reynolds number effects can be quite significant, so the model would probably benefit from their inclusion. This especially applies to props due to their short chords and wide operating speed range.

    Will be? You might have missed that the model is finished on the last page of the thread.

    Thanks Jagd...2 for the link to the thread, and it's a nice site too.

    I defer to MrBlueSky's greater expertise---it looks to me like the plastic/balsa modeler made a rum go of the sublime snout of the supremely graceful WW.
