Daryl,

Hehehe, close, but no banana!

It says 'Any aircraft looks better with longer wings' and one that can actually EXTEND its wings in flight gets the prize for sure!

Love some of those Russian devices, they're wonderfully bizarre. And the French ones could ONLY be French!  :lol: -_-
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Regards
Kit

Could swing wings be put on the Grumman F-11F series?

Might be difficult in real life, but I intend to have a bash at some point because I made an off-hand comment about a Cornish Grumman Jaguar in Patchwork World. it was terribly difficult finding wings to match, but I've now got a 1/100th scale F-14 squirreled away for when I'm feeling brave.....
