3D model description

This is the Thrust Reverser for Business Turbofan Engine.
There are several type of Thrust Reverser. This is the Bucket (Target, Clam Shell) Type.
This model was designed in order to compare the principle to the Cascade Vane Type for Turbofan previous model which I made.

A. Design points:
1. Open/Close mechanism of the Buckets.
(Mechanical Link-Lever Method instead of Hydraulic System)
2. Attachment relation between Business Turbofan Engine and Side Mount, etc.
3. This is the almost same size of my Business Turbofan Engine.
4. Control stick with Assist Device is connected to the Buckets.
5. Removable Cowling to watch air flow of Engine.
