Not too far from the Avon powered Wyvern proposal, although the drawings for that are based more on the earlier Wyvern with the more squared off fin.  Don't think it would need the taller fin nor the finlets but hey, your model.

I think the white metal nose cone thing is the Aeroclub one for the Lightning.

GM Le Sabre Concept Car in 1/72nd and an Indy Racer in 1/60th. The Le Sabre is a natural to go with '50 sci-fi models:



... or perhaps an F-86.  ;D ;D

Unless the wings are breaking off in level flight, it ain't overpowered!  :thumbsup:

Love the idea. Just one small point though. The J-79 produced about 4 times the thrust of the J-34 engine!! A Cutlass so engined would be massively over powered would it not? How about a SINGLE J-79? Alternatively, the F-7/F-4 hybrid illustrated would seem to fit the bill just nicely!

I think overpowered is a good thing.  I mean, everyone knows that the English Electric Lightning was overpowered, and everyone loved it - the punters at the air shows who got to see it demonstrated, and the pilots who got to fly it. (Loved the power, I mean - no-one particularly liked its short range.)

So I think the Cutlass will be fine - we're going to reinforce the fuselage with Unobtainium, you know, and if that can make it to the centre of the Earth, as Hollywood assures us it can, then I think we'll be OK.  :)

Just a friendly reminder.

As from the original post, I was hoping this thread would not become a thread showing already made dioramas.
The reason being is that there are already numerous threads about built dioramas.
Also, this thread is in the sub-forum "The Idea Bank" and not "The Ideal Bank" where some modellers may feel that they may have to compete.
