All hail the God of Frustration!!!


just out of curiousity, would the rotors clear the tails during various maneuvers?

Cap'n this is just so wicked, so krazy, so illogical that it deserves to fly....scort for some Marines Rotodynes!! :wub: :wub: :wub:

OK, I know I can't stop scratchbuilding. Someday, I will build something OOB....



OH SO COOL Cap'n. I saw you posted this but I have not been able to see pictures for the last couple of days due to an idiotnet problem. This is so slick. I wish I had come up with it. :wub: :wub: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :bow: :bow:

Now that's one of the most unique and imaginitive designs on here in a long time.  Very cool!

I think I mentioned this way back in the build thread, but it reminds me of an alien (from the Alien movies).
So I got that going for me...which is nice....


I remeber when you first started this off.

I was a little unsure but I thought what the hell let's wait until it is finished.

Now I am sure........that it looks cool!!
Get this Cheese to sick bay!


Cool.  :thumbsup:

When i first saw this thread i thought you were going down the rotor-less route and just having the cobra body as a fuselage in the P-38 style. But keeping the rotors gives it VTOL and makes it a versatile beastie.
Well done again.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Captain Canada

Thanks guys !

And don't worry, Ves....I've been doing 'various' manouvers with her for years now, and we haven't had a crash yet !

This is so "out of the box" that there IS no box!  You have a very fertile mind, Captain!    :thumbsup:

Over the top !
I agree: you are over the top of what-if modellism, dear Captain: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
Such a lovely model... :wub:
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]


Just a little extra question: what about anti-torque...? :huh:
I guess, either:
- the starboard engine has more power/rpm than the port one
- the direction of the propellers is very slightly oblical
- the rotor is power-less just freely rotating for STOL lift (but what are the pod turbine exhausts for?)
Anyway, I love it, as a desk model, love it so much... :wub:
