Because the design was intended to be simple, the development period was short. The fuselage, while not directly based on any other design's, drew design concepts from other more recent designs like the StratoCruiser and Turbo StratoDragon. The tapered, high-aspect ratio wing fitted was chosen to give the new aircraft better performance that the antiquated constant chord arrangement present on the original Skynaut. Likewise, the stabilizers and fuselage underwent similar alterations. Flight testing went well and the aircraft was almost immediately declared a success worthy of publication--as well as having upheld the legacy of the Skynaut.
TAA USAF Designation: D312-1
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8 by 10.5 inch graph paper
Step 2: Begin Construction
After the fuselage is made, take another sheet of paper that is folded in half along the lines of boxes. Mark out the wing as shown (3 boxes in length at the fuselage, with chord decaying 1 box every 6 boxes outwards and 6 boxes in width).
Solid lines indicate places to cut. Dotted lines indicate fold lines.
Note: 1 box = 0.25 inches
