Japan's new F-2 support fighter was designed and built by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries(MHI) and Lockheed Martin Company from F-16 as the basis for the design. The F-2 aircraft is designed to meet the unique needs of the Japan Air Self Defense Force(JASDF). The main wings are made from graphite-epoxy composite material. This technology have already been applied in the production of tooling for composite parts used on the F-22 Raptor.

How to manufacture F-2


Download the drawing and print it on thick paper. (Refer to Material and Instrument.) Set up your printer for thick paper.
Cut the paper according to the thick line. Start with body of plane. Fold up as dash and dot line " _ . _ . _" , and fold down as dash line " - - - - " . At first make cockpit 1. After folding the forepart of body2, paste cockpit1 inside the body2 and re-fold. After folding the body3, open and paste the forepart of body2 inside the body and re-fold. Cut out the catapulting hook. Paste nose cover 7 and 8 at nose of body. Bend down horizontal tail wings at thin line as 10 degrees from horizontal level like figure. (Horizontal tail have anhedral angle of 10 degree.) Dihedral angle of main wings is 7 degrees. Paste main wings 4 over the body. Put and paste vertical tail fin 5 in basal parts of vertical fin 6 and attach on wings 4. Bend up rear edge of horizontal tail wings slightly. No balance weight is needed. (lead-free policy)

Bend down front edge of main wings slightly as a bow shape to make camber. Form washout (decrease angle of incidence at wing tip) at the tip of main wings slightly.
Spray clear paint thinly if fly outdoor.
