Oh, I realize that, years ago, I already Drew Magnus Effect Lightning and Cyclogyro Lightning, differently:

If you have no time to build it, I may have time to draw it, Copyright 63cpe of course ;D
The source I found is http://fanwing.com/ is it that?

The middle one of the three drawn above is almost there already.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Thanks!

On the 4-engined version of the P-38CW, the wings were not small as a whole, but the flat part of them (usual meaning of "wings") was tiny:
