Glad you like it, thanks very much.  ;D

After going through the old plastic bag with the remaining bits of the FD2, I found I'd used the nose wheel doors for the main wheels on the JP6.  :banghead:

No real matter, it's difficult to see under there anyway, but I'll need to make new ones for the FD1.5, which is what I'm going to call the FD2 bits when I've found some wings for it.  ;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! :)

Cool.  How about something similar but with a 144th Victor wing?

You could probably combine the 1:96 Victor wings from the Lindberg kit with a Canberra fuselage, maybe for a crew trainer?

And I have more than one spare Canberra fuselage...  ;)

Lovely little trainer!  :wub:

That sounds very good.  :thumbsup:
Zero-Sen has done a photoshop of a fighter-sized Victor that looked very good. I think with a Hunter for the fuselage, but I'm not sure.
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Very smart, Kit :thumbsup:

Side profile still reminds me of a jet Basset. 

Front end Basset plus JP5 intakes, back end JP plus Basset fin/rudder/tailplane, JP5 wings - simples!
