It's all done and dusted now Brian, even for those who live in Adelaide, sorry.  ;D
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! :)

You could still build it, and it might even be nominated for a Whiffie, you never know.  ;)

Due to a few started builds before this Group Build was nominated,  I'm ruling myself out  of this project but here are a few ideas for your Whiffers; adding the engines from a  B-52 to the  Trident airliner- the 5 engined version.  A  triple engined Avro Shackleton  or twin turboprops/ turbofaned  engines.  The Boeing  SST airliner  with the engines from an Airfix 1/144 BAC Concorde.  :banghead:

If you meant to post this on the Engines More Or Less GB thread, then you've put it on the wrong one - sorry.
