Aha! More room for nose weight!    ;)

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

But what's that little 2-missile rack under the boom, not seen anything like that before --- or that style of drop tank either.

Didn't they carry 'winders toward the end of their service?
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! :)

Probably Swiss 80mm rockets, same as they used on the Venom and Hunters.

Don't think this applies to that picture, but the Swiss did have recce drop-tanks for their Venoms (and Vampires?) which had cameras in the nose and fuel in the middle.
