Can't wait!  Any idea which night camo scheme or will it be a custom job?

Ooo! Slanting Music! (Sorry, can't remember the German words exactly, but that's what it means when translated)
There are no good kits, bad kits or grail kits, just kitbash fodder.

Strange Music I think you mean, sort of translation for Jazz, Slanting Music is another variation.

Nice looking build as well  :thumbsup:

The S didn't have the engine, it was purely a glider.  The second cockpit occupied the space where the engine was.  Even if it did have an engine, it had enough fuel for 15 minutes flying time, maximum.

That's what the drop tanks are for...good lord, its a whiff...WORK WITH ME!!!! :lol:  Also note, the ammo feeds are internal from the existing ammo bins for the now not used wing mounted MK 108's.  Yes, the "real" S did not have an engine, but it COULD have.  There was still room for the engine, jut not enough tankage room.  I'm working on that issue.  So far, I feel my WHIFF is indeed feasible, but still impractical.

A very interesting concept and most importantly, a very well contructed and finished model.  Well done!

:thumbsup:
