Puffers are only necessary if you're going VTOL.   As the engines are mounted rather forward of the C-of-G, I think the load would be rather limited in the VTOL condition.  I'd stick with STOL instead.  No need for puffers then and your engines are fine where they are.

United States Marine Corps VC-130H at Cherry Point, North Carolina 1978. 

"Sweet 6" pictured at her home base of Cherry Point.  The VC-130's had been primary used to support AV-8A operations at austere bases, much like her RAF counterparts supporting Gr1 and Gr3 operations in Germany. "Sweet 6" was to later gain her place in history during operation Eagle Claw to rescue the American Hostages from the embassy compound in Teheran, Iran. 

The kit: 1/72 Airfix.  Self casted resin Pegasus engines (x4).

Truly awesome job there Dave, not only in the idea, but the build itself, super work.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
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! :)
