This original design is based off of this brilliant reference aircraft.

This is my entry into the Zen Magnets Contest #79: Unlimited Zen Aircraft (May 2020) ... contest.zenmagnets.com/79-unlimited-aircraft/

 

Build was constructed using @1233 Zen Magnets and consisted of a tapered cylindrical Fuselage, rear Delta Wings, Tail Fin + Engine, front Canard Wings, and pilot Cockpit.

 

The challenge was to achieve the distinctive Canard shape with the limitation of certain magnet angles and tricky mix of duo coupled/parallel magnetic alignments.

 

(@525) - Fuselage - (4x32 core)+(4x(1+29+1) sides)+(4x(7) spacers @2)+(2 nose tip)+(2x(1+23) side intake)+((5x(4+10))+4 rear engine)+(1+(2x30) top trim)+(2x25 wing/fuselage side trim)

 

(@474) - Rear Delta Wings - 2x((1+(2x15) inside) + (1+(2x13)+1) + (2x13) + (1+(2x10)+1) + (2x10) + (1+(2x7)+1) + (2x7) + (1+(2x4)+1 tip) + ((1+(2x9)+1)+(1+(2x4)+1) under wing mounts) + (2+(2x(2x8))+2)+4(riser) missile mount)

 

(@125) - Tail Fin - (1+(2x8)+1 base)+(2x8) + (1+(2x6)+1) + (1+(2x6)) + (1+(2x5)+1) + (1+(2x5)) + (1+(2x4)+1) + (1+(2x4)) + (1+(2x3)+1) + (1+(2x3)) + (1+(2x2)+1)+(1 bottom fuller)

 

(@078) - Front Canard Wings - 2x((1+(2x3)+1 base)+(1+(2x3)+1)+(1+(2x3))+(1+(2x2)+1)+(1+(2x2)+1 tip)+(2x2 riser))
