That looks VERY conventional for you Ericr, are you feeling OK?
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! :)

 ;D

the originality is in a reverse way in the nearly normal looks I guess  ;)
the difference from the original Marlin is notable I would say  :lol:

and the hull is already used and shown on this forum ...  ;D

Lots of beautiful insanity here!  :wub: :thumbsup:

I have to ask, what kits did you use for the land Marlin? It looks so believable! I might have to try this myself.... (Like I need more ideas!!!)

Indeed.

Very good Eric.

the canard configuration was not initially intended, but made for a better wing fit ...

Your best 'all aeroplane' Whiff yet Ericr!  :thumbsup:

What scale is it please?

With a 'conventional' SAC type colour scheme that would almost look 'normal' on a SIG stand at Telford.  ;D ;)
