Not sure to what use this will be put.  Currently fighter, ground attack, or recce are favourite.

- 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.

X2 !

I've been planning something similar Fred, I've got a spare 1/72 A310 wing which is formed in one piece (but separate top and bottom halves) and looks like it could end up as UAV or something.

Is the fuselage going to be an F-14 or biz-jet?

Intriguing  :mellow:
Agreed  :thumbsup:
McColm has a pretty good idea with the fusealge ..something like F14 would look pretty cool Fred .
If not F14 something twin seater or a big single seater with a long nose .
If it aint broke ,,fix it until it is .
Over kill is often very understated .
I know the voices in my head ain't real but they do come up with some great ideas .

Oh a F104 Starfighter would look cool stuffed in that gap and i think without the tail ..a super sharp looking delta of sorts.

Cool, I like the shape and engine position that gives, I may need to borrow this idea as a basis for a Boomerang III.

Is there a 1/144 Victor kit?

Yes there's several and even a 1/96 scale.

Flyer

Oh good, cheers McColm, now just need to find one at a good price then.

Now that I'm thinking about it 1/144 may be a bit small to make a 1/72 so 1/96 could be the way to go...

The Wooksta!

Think Great Wall Hobby do a mk2 Victor, Mikro Mir do a 144th B1, although Mr Putin may have caused issues with distribution.

Looks like the 96th Lindberg kit.
