Right, I might join this GB at risk of not finishing in time.

So, I won't give any guarantee that this project will be completed on time. Anyway, with three weeks already passed and now starting late with this project, here is the mandatory start photo. What was added after this photo are two tail booms from a 1/170 Nord Noratlas.

Perhaps another project is coming, but there is no deal yet to buy the built model for the necessary parts. So that project is still far from certain.

Cheers,

I strongly approve this project of twin-boomer! <_<
Thanks for your enriching the twin-boom family! :thumbsup:  ;D  ;)

I try to imagine (on the basis of P-38 parts) how to mix 2 single-engined planes + 2 booms with tractor engines... Something like that ? No ? :unsure:

So the first cuts are done: The middle section of the fuselage (marked) will be removed.

This is what you get when the section is removed:

The canopy was put on top as it kind of resembled an egg shaped aircraft. The cockpit will be put on top of the fuselage were the canopy sits in the picture. the resulting openings will be faired over. The trailing edge of the fuselage will be were the black marker is at the tail.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
