In the photo above I have things just taped together for a dry fit to see what the best arrangements are. Have never done an EDF install before so chime in if you see something irregular.

Love the 3d nose. It's makes the plane look a lot more scale. The thrust tube may be extended further but it good I think. Even without the thrust tube it should work

Here are some more picks of my 5EZP MiG-25 FOXBAT.
Also here is a link to her last flight with a MJv3 motor.

I'm concerned about the intakes starving the EDF of air.
Is there a rule of thumb about this?
Should I create more air intakes?

My favorite thing about the MiG25 was that it was built in response to the XB70. Reportedly, the 70 scared them so much that they produced this plane very quickly. Satellite photos lead the west into thinking it was a fighter, not interceptor, so they started a new fighter program that lead to the F15.

And the A-12, predecessor to the SR-71, is reportedly faster and higher flying. Granted, they've only begun declassifying the A-12, and the SR-71 is mostly classifed as has been stated. A-12 began flying in 1962.
