Hey that's right...  (I was barely awake this morning...)  Fixer sounds like "Fencer" (Su 24 I think it was? )   so I'll be changing that. 

EDIT:  OK, I was about to use "Foghat" but that sounds sort of like "Fagot" so.....    "Farscape" it is.

Thinking about a third build and i've ordered a kit specifically (well, it was cheap).
NATO reporting name "Flogfoot" which might give you an idea of the direction i'm thinking.

The outstandingly beautiful (cough, splutter....) Beriev B-12 is called the 'Mail' in the RW though.

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! :)

Regards

'Flounder' is already in use for the Chinese Xian JH-7: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xian_JH-7

Perhaps the link to the NATO reporting names could be edited into the opening post?

Yup! 'twas why I went for Flatfish ;D

I'd like to book "Flatiron" if that's OK, for the next project.

Darn! Thanks, weaver - I missed that. I will reserve "Fishwife" for the Beriev Be-11 if that is ok.

Suggestion for anyone that wants it: Fraggle.

You're welcome.

I'm using Flogfoot.
I know it wouldn't be used IRL as its too similar to Frogfoot but it fits with what i'm doing.

And no, its not a Chinese Su 25...
