As there were extra wings for take off position, this will be the very first "supersonic triplane" ever!

At this step, the F-14Z is the very first supersonic VG biplane:

But this is still too much "normal" for me, and the triplane layout will be required... ;)

Painting in black the canopies is not easy, even with a micro pen:

The F-14Z model is finished (yes, the very first supersonic triplane ever!):

After the F-14Z is finished, now the last one of the set = S-3Z Twin-Viking...

I found the same Tamiya 1/350th set in my stash you have Tophe. I pulled out the S-3 Vikings and with a little inspiration from Stratolaunch and White Knight
Mine will not be a copy of kerick's: mine will be less fine, worse done, but more crazy - asymmetric canard biplane with jets above the top wing... :unsure: ;D

These are a lot more fun to play with than I would have thought! Carry on, my friend!  :thumbsup:

I like the hi-tech assembly jig.  ;D ;)
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! :)
