Just in time for a certain event in December. Between this and the 2 Avis releases you could now have all 3 variants of this gorgeously hideous beast!

Remove the tail planes & chop out the centre (cockpit & wings) section & you'd have a funky engine nacelle for ... something! :thumbsup:

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Not that the other La-200 variants were much more attractive.

Slightly pipped by the Sukhoi's 'Flying basking shark', the first Su-15.
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.

I think it's kinda cute.
Imagine it with a clowns mouth, red nose and big eyes on the upper scoops.
