Completed JW flying wing revised for carbonglass
The JW flying wing was restored to the exact original spec and now features a fuselage of less volume and surface area, plus a supporting wing fillet and underside hatch.
Airfoil suite optimized prior to surfacing
As always, the airfoil suite is first curve optimized in a 4 step process before making surfaces from them. The original fuselage profile is shown as well. Here is the result surface analyzed in polished silver. Perfect.
The completed model on sign-off was decomposed to parts and sent to the builder in China
Prototype mold from new technique
A prototype male mold plug was carved with a new technique that makes parting planes optional in the manufacturing process.
Fuselage stretch proposal
For kicks and grins, I proposed a longer fuselage and revised fin with a bit less area.
The proposed stretched fuselage. Suggested wing section would be a very thin EH-1.0/7.0 section for extreme speeds.
Proto fuselage bodies
The stretched fuselage suggestion incorporated the original vertical fin as well.
Taking the concept to another place, the model is rendered with a Thinned EH section and sports a Beavertail stabilizer. The fuselage is itself made from the main wing section.
