Looks good.  :thumbsup:
As to VTOL, here's the Gloster 520 82-passenger transport concept, the lift engines are in the sponsons.

This model is inspired! I'd not been into this GB and I'm wishing I'd gotten here sooner. Those engine pods are gorgeous!

Making it STOL is prolly a good idea.  Imagine the amount of dust raised in a vertical take off from an unsealed strip...
 :o

It's looking very promising. :thumbsup:

- 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.

Do you think it could land in and take off from a football stadium? One in Tehran perhaps?

Naaaah, who'd be silly enough to try and do THAT?  :o
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! :)
