We have. But that was more than ten years ago.  :o
I even tried building one. LINK! May have to pry this one from the Shelf of Doom. Might be difficult finding the bits and bobs again, though, after all those years..... :banghead:
Cheers,
Moritz


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?

Yes Moritz, you really SHOULD dig it out again, what you've done on  it so far looks magnificent!  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

I have just discovered this rare picture of the RAAF's first attempt at an AEW aircraft.  The project was cancelled when flight testing showed a few instability issues.

- 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.

I can just see you building that in the near future, and then claiming 'Well it must be right, I've got photographic proof!'  ;D ;) :thumbsup:
