That looks great, they'll sell lots of those, in Toronto and Montreal anyway.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Quick note of an oddity found in Flight, February 1979.

US State Department denied an export license on an Italian request for the ... XV-15

Get whiffing.

From Jon's link above;
...the aircraft's purpose is to take off and land vertically, but fly faster than a helicopter...

I've got a nagging memory of a UK company trying something similar in the 50's...
Can't quite put my finger on it.  The Roto-something... :wacko:

Which made me think about kitbashing an Osprodyne/Rotosprey.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I read that as rotospey, another kitbash...???
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.
