A little old Mig 21 model formed the basis of this multirole supersonic gyrodyne, as it bears more than a passing resemblance to various Supermarine paper projects of the sixties..... :tank:

In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

Sorry, was late last night....morning that I posted this,  may I introduce, belatedly, the Supermarine Spartan nuclear armed interceptor Gyrodyne!

I disagree. 
It is just not weird enough to be "british during the 1960s". 
Now if the air to air missiles were on top of the wing...... :ph34r:

Looks just right!  :bow: Like something out of a 1950/60s sci-fi flick or comic book. :thumbsup:  :wacko:

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Well.....I've only found one model of a Bolo online, so I think I might have to add to that no.

Dear Deathjester, could you post a picture of the model profile? to appreciate the difference with the source profile and understand plainly the amount of work you performed... :thumbsup:
