Just been directed to an excellent web comic called Freak Angels - sort of a post-apocalyptic steampunk style thang. Havn't read even 1% of it yet, but it seems to have some nifty modelling possibilities:





the sad thing about Freak Angels is that it is now finished......enjoyed it whilst it was being done, first port of call on a friday when i logged on for the first time.........didnt like the ending im afraid  :angry:

Didn't so much mind the ending, but what grated with me was the blatant product placement: in this "post apocalyptic" world, they're all wearing nicely screen-printed "Freak-Angels" gear that "just happens" to be the same as the stuff you can buy from the website...... :rolleyes:

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?

I found this hypothetical design developed by a German model builder in the early Eighties as a speculative Grumman FSW configuration dubbed 'Rakecat':

Me, I'm dishonest, and you can always trust a dishonest man to be dishonest.
Honestly, it's the honest ones you have to watch out for!!!

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! :)
