But no Twin-Lightning as I can use the other kit for another project.
Of course, do as you prefer. It is normal that my kind of craziness is not striking everyone ;) ;D

I did think, once, about how to build a Lightning with 4 engines in a cruciform layout (with a space in-between for cooling), but I wasn't at all sure where to put the sorely needed additional fuel ...

                                                                                              _____O  O_____
                                                                                                         O
I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

LOVE it!  :wub:

They'd be VERY fast, and climb like a homesick angel, so long as the enemy was INSIDE the airfield perimeter.   ;D

Might be easier like this

                             O O
                 ---------      --------
                             O O

You could build it with two Lightning fuselages side by side that way.  ;)

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
Kit

No need of fuel at all! (on our scale models, not actually flying, just being dreamy objects) ;)

I do have a project that does just that, although it's two sets of pairs of engines all set to go into a larger, single air-fame, so what was a 4-engined craft becomes an 8-engined craft.  I'm just not sure the increase in thrust is worth the increased fuel burn
