Most PSR done! Too bad dust entered the cockpit and is now sticking to the inside of the canopy. Think the airbrush will solve that..

Nice.  :thumbsup:

Payen’s fléche series are classifed as tandem-wing rather than as canard aircraft,
ditto the Miles Libellulas and the Delanne designs.

Wowee, that DOES look good, as Chris said.  :thumbsup:
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! :)

Thank you gentlemen.

@ Caveman the prop came from an Noratlas.. it is a tad too big. Probably have to settle for something smaller in diameter like a p-63, p-51 or Spitfire Mk9 prop..

Will you have the model like "in flight" (no problem) or with undercarriage (requiring long long legs)? ;)
