That's one BIG 'ole machine!  :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! :)

Is there any way to move the engines back a little?  They seem very far forward

........and the engines are moved more to the back. It looks more balanced.
Flaps are moveable and the exhausts are just below the flaps trailing edge once in full lower position. Oh the black spots is paint to fill pinholes.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

It is indeed  :thumbsup:  :thumbsup:

Indeed, indeed. Between the Airtruck and the Conestoga you're beating Dizzy's record for tons of putty used. :o

Hahaha, with the conestoga I might beat him. That's a putty galore. I didn't used that much putty in the airtruk. Although i used 2 different puttied in the Airtruk. To save on 1 k putty i used 2k putty for the big gaps.
