Sundog said:Also, if anyone has the book, Billion Dollar Blunder, their is a pic of the model of the Northrop design for the ATA program. It looks like a smaller version of the B-2 (The planform is more like the original B-2 layout, with a smaller aspect ratio) and the wingtips would bend up vertically for greater stability when the gear was extended.
BAROBA said:Hello all
I don't know if this is the right place to ask: But I am searching for hi-res images of the A-12 avenger2 blueprints.
I know about the Habu-A12 site, but they are not exactly hi-res images...
Those are way too small..
I had contact with the museumowner(?) a few years ago, they have/had the blueprints of it. But they couldn't scan them, because of too much work involved and because of their size... I read in a thread here on this forum ( Yes, I did do a search for the A-12) that the museum is closed already...
Does someone know of another source for the blueprints?
Sundog said:I had started modeling the A-12 for FS9, but then went over to modeling the GD Model 100 single seat flying wing that supposedly flew. Although, I actually have seen drawings of another design called the GD Model 100. That other being a highly swept delta wing with all three apex's rounded, side by side seating, twin side by side engines, with a dorsal inlet behind the cockpit and twin canted tails (like on the F-35) with nozzles like on the YF-23. It looks to be an F-111 class aircraft in terms of size, but that's just based on what I've been able to put together based on different articles. I was working on a model of it for FS9 as well, but really haven't had the time to work on them.
