Here's a bit of what if whatiffery. since i won't be able to find a 747 in this scale,
BUILD one, then!

Maybe just the top curvature of the fuselage could be represented by a sliver of painted white ABS pipe, engraved with a few panel lines and some antennas fixed.

You could go all-out designing and building some mounts/struts and the fuselage sliver could serve as a model stand, yes?
That sound like a challenge and I gladly accept! ;)  B) Here's the slathering of putty and oh yea, I put a little more on the FrankenMunster B-142 ;)

Man Eddie I have to hand it to you! You really apply out of the box thinking to your creations.

What happened to the twin hog thing? haven't seen it for awhile. That was one I was really hangin to see finished.
Thanks! The Hogilla is sitting in the jungle of model boxes, snorting at me to get started........ :P

Looking good Eddie! Nice job on the underside of the fuse. I really like watching your builds come together.

Cool!  I applied a similar paint scheme to my F-23-based spaceplanes a few years back.  One of these days I'll finish one of them...

Looking forward to you finishing this!

I get to have a little fun today with paint and plastic. I get my birthday as a paid day off, so I'm enjoying it. The only drawback is that my little girl is sick. It's a helpless feeling when they don't feel good.  :(

I did a little more painting and I put the canopy on for looks. A little minor surgury and it will be done. :)

Here are the inspirations you have given me.
1. on top of transport aircraft
2. single stage booster
3.as part of a stack

JHM, thanks for the ideas. This one will end up looking cool because of you! B)  :party:

Edward my boy, any chance of another "inflighty" sorta shot of the underside before she gets her arse welded to that drainpipe?

Tell you what, she's a real looker, birthday boy!  I can just imagine buck rogers falling asleep in one of those only to get woken up by tweekie (yawn) and wilma (sproing).

ahhhhhh wilma...

Woah Birthday Boy this one just keeps getting better and better! I really like the blue canopy and the idea of using PVC pipe for a base is truly inspired!

This one's gonna take off like a rocket!
