An-2 sailing car, red Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

something else : remainders of the day

from older projects, I had a fuselage of an An-2, and sails from a Sinagot
(as well as bits for the front and tail, and wheel from a Fokker Dr.1 and a Me262 ...)

They do fit together into a sailing car :

TRULY WONDERFUL!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

I can imagine an outboard motor arrangement for windless days - with a wheel instead of a propeller.

That's it.  Just put a 90 degree gearbox on the end where the prop is and then attach a wheel.  Sorted.
