Here's the first pics of the very early stages of modeling the F-35A. I just wish I had more reference pics to go off of.

Not sure if anyone has offered, but I'd be interested in skinning if you need someone. I've been looking forward to this aircraft and would love to help.

If this model ends up being a success, then yes, there will be an F-32 - possibly with the multiple variations that it had as well.

Maybe this will help too....

 

Notice the complete glass panel. This is actually a total of 16 seperate screens. There is no HUD. Everything is mounted onto the visor of the new helmet. The seat is good for ejection that will exceed those of the A.C.E.S. II chair (which has a 98% sucess rate). The canopy attached in the front and has no rail (as seen on the X-35). I will see if I can find some F-35 plan views in my files. I will get back with you soon.

Gah dang it! Now I have to model a new pilot for that helmet. Can't be using that HMD (Helmet Mounted Display - which I hope to integrate with this aircraft) with the stock pilots. I believe I recall that this jet also has 360 deg radar traacking. Flankers beware, your days are numbered.

A favor to ask can someone make a 120th FIS skin as they will be getting the F-35 in bout 7 years (turning in there F-16Cblk 30's YAY).

If you're gonna be knife fighting in a phonebooth, it won't be the pilot in the flanker worrying... :tongue:

 

So since this jalopy's gonna have no hud, what are your options for SFP? Is it possible to integrate the hud with the mouse freelook system?

I think the hud is going to be projected into the Pilot's helmet, either that or its like the F-14 projected on the forward glass.

I know it might not seem like much progress was done, but believe me, this is an update. I've been working all weekend to try and make all the sexy curves on this thing as close to the real F-35. I still got some more things to adjust, but I pretty much satisfied so far (or I wouldn't be posting pics). Anyways, this is all that I'm doing for the night. Tomorrow I'm off to Disney California with the family (something they wanted to do since my return from Iraq) so I wanted to at least provide some kind of an update that would be some what aesthetically pleasing. I think the only other exterior work that needs to be done is the cannon hub on top of the left intake and the laser designator on the bottom of the nose. I think there's also another item that goes directly infront of the canopy. Then it will be detailed stuff such as the cockpit, flaps, elevons, rudders, speed brake, landing gears (oh what a joy that'll be), and weapons bay. I'll be working on that possibly on Wednesday. Once that's at done, it should be fairly easy to work on the variants. Well, here are the pics. Enjoy.

Silly question (because you've probably already said it and I have completely missed it) is the a model of the X-35 or the F-35, because I think (JSFAggie's gonna probably very rightfully correct me if I'm wrong) the 'production' F-35s have 'narrower' intakes than the X-35.

 

I hope that doesn't sound like a nit-pick and please don't take it as 'destructive criticisms' I'm also one of the ones waiting to see this model finished.

This is the production model, F-35A. You might be thinking ofthe F-35B or C, but they all might have the same size intake manifolds. I already had some people look at it and they said that the intakes were dead on to the real deal.

It is called sensor fusion. In the industry it is called an Electro-Optical Sensor (EOS). Imagine an undetectable sensor that can see 360 degrees on the X and Y aspect!
