It's too late to move the wing, but I can still fix the landing gear problem. It's just too short for that prop, which IS the same size as the Wildcat one, but a lot further forward, so when the plane is on an even keel, the prop would be ticking the ground. Didn't think that out in advance! I'll just slightly extend the struts.

Oh, and thanks GTX, it's a really nifty concept.

A rare sharkmouthed bird - one that really looks shark-like.  Well done!   ;D ;D
