Has no-one else held a pair of wings together without a fuselage between them and thought, hmmmmmmmmmm.
Victor wings make for a particularly impressive flying wing for example.

 :o
I do have a Victor in my stash ...


I don't anymore.  A Matchbox/Revell one would suffice but I have yet to find one cheap enough.
I envisage gluing the wings together root to root and mounting a single seater bubble canopy on top.
Valiant wings could also work.

I just checked : wing to wing looks so good.
A twin-seater would do the job too I think.





Do it.  Paint it blue.  I like your blue builds best.   :thumbsup:

You could even put floats on it.  Or would that be too much?

well it did come to my mind, most curiously  ;)
but that means sizeable floats ...

Here's a quick and dirty plan view using a Starfighter fuselage as a connector

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

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

actually I have another idea with another connector, even finer  ...
some brainstorming has to be continued

no floats yet, I liked to try the wheeled version ; but then who knows, in some future ?
