Larger wings might look more convincing...

Plus make it even more difficult to get past when driving down a country lane  :angel:

Tractors are very good at folding stuff up so it only scrapes your paintwork a little bit.  :-\

I stumbled upon this, and was stunned :






especially as I had in my spares box a fuselage of a HD500, and a few other ingredients ... so I had to do something about it ;
I had to go and dig deep into the box for the spats, from a resin Arado 95, but the rest (Twin Otthe wings, P38 tail) were easier to find.

Reminds me of the Edgely Optica with that 'bug eyed' look.

LOVE the mixing and matching you did with it Ericr.  :thumbsup:

And Twin Otter wings too! JUST what I need for the tailplane on my Rotocrane.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Regards
Kit

I was thinking just that, retro-Optica. :mellow: :mellow: :mellow:
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.

Very cool!!

When I see something like this I always like to think of it from the perspective of a passenger (or perhaps the pilot when he/she isn't occupied with flying) and how awesome it would be to have such a great VIEW. One of the coolest parts of flying... is looking at the ground!

Yes, thanks steelpillow to have rang the alarm bell! I missed this marvel! :wub: :thumbsup: :bow:
The notify tool seems to have failed, because I changed my navigator, sorry.
Yes, this is one of the most beautiful twin-boomer I have seen, with the Edgley Optica but better as single piece in the whole World! :wub:

I had this kit of the MIR station for some years, second hand and half begun, and I finally did something with,
like a gathering of space craft up there (involving wings from various donors : Twin Otter ; Albatross W4 ; P38 ; CF-100 ; Mi-2 ; Sinagot)

This is proving the space adventure was already possible in 1918! Amazing! :thumbsup: ;D
