I have finished the model or it has finished me!

Here's a quick pic I will take more in daylight tomorrow as the canopy glue has yet to go off and I don't want to move it around too much.

Hope that's allowed !

Very good.

- 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.

With/without a tail it still looks like a low-tech Star Wars pod racer to me!

Looks much more functional with a vertical tail at the back :thumbsup:
"functional" is not necessary in a whif world, so I have tried the opposite: no central tail at all and a twin-boom genuine layout:

Thanks! ;D

That's totally OUTRAGEOUS, as only a Vogt design can be.  :o

Well done indeed on taking that build on, especially in a One Week GB, it looks terrific.  :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! :)
