Somehow it looks like half a Vought XF5U-1 with that MASSIVE prop.

It also looks superb as well.  :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! :)

Brilliant job Dave.  I love the mono legged undercart.

Seriously looks like a fuselage designed to be dragged screaming through the air by the engine powering that massive prop! ;D :thumbsup:

Hi,

Good work 63cpe ! :thumbsup:

I dream of making such a model (with the frame of a 1/72 Supermarine Seafire Mk 47 and the wings and canards of a 1/48 Payen Pa.101 or of a Pa.22/5).


What is the frame that you used for this model ? Do you made your own wings and canards ? In what material ?

How do you "stick" wings (glue ?) and canards (?) ?

Thanks Gentlemen,

@ Deltafan: the fuselage is from an Italeri MC.202 Folgore including the belly radiator and vertical tailplane. The aft wings are made from plasticart (2x1 mm) and the front wings are Matchbox Meteor nf 11/12/14 tailplanes. and because the fuselage and wings are made from the same styrene material, it was bonded by ordinairy (revell) glue. Which has the plus of setting slowly so i could adjust the wings to be even. Aft wings have a slight anhedral. The front wings have a slight dihedral.
