I'd like to see that. I've thought about it myself, but haven't had time yet.

That is COOL! Excellent work!
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

Looks good! I never knew the business end of the plane was that square.
Sad that the thing never saw the actual light of day. I recall a story that a delegacy of American military hotshots were visiting MBB and were utterly shocked by the sight of this Lampyridae because they themselves secretly had been working on a similar plane project called Have Blue at Groom Lake. If I remember correctly, the Americans asked the Germans to stop their project. And weirdly, they did.

only a year late, here are the photos of the finished item:













Decals are custom-made, the logo on the nose is of WTD 61, the 'Wehrtechnische Dienststelle 61' (Bundeswehr Technical and Airworthiness Center for Aircraft) which evaluates new aircraft.
Love it!  What a brilliant little jet!
