Model HL-20
Units Inches
Description This is an assisted parametrization of my previously flawed VSP3 model, tuned to a laser scan of a wind tunnel model of the HL-20. Interestingly, the laser scan itself is asymmetric, indicating that the accuracy, while maybe as good as it gets, does have noticeable measurement error in it.
Source Quality

2 - The source material used to create this model was Essentially Exact. This means detailed dimensions and drawings were used to create the model.

Model Suitability
  • 1 - Accurate OML for detailed aerodynamic analysis or CFD
  • 1 - OML for wetted areas/drag buildup
  • 1 - Check internal layout/volume
  • 1 - Build a display model
  • 1 - Cartoon or Pretty Picture
