X-45A UCAV

Originally the wings were to be formed separately but I figure the best way to get a good match will be to shape them along with the fuselage. Due to the thinness of the wings I will shape these from balsa over a styrene profile.
 


The X-45 was powered by a Honeywell F124-GA-100 turbofan. The engine is tightly cowled and difficult to see in photos however the front and rear will be visible so I have begun fabricating these.
 In this picture only 3 of the first stage fan blades have been fitted and the nose cone is glued in position ... many more to add.
