Finally got round to doing the Triple Foxbat.....

RAF Secret Projects bought up a load of cheap Mig25s after the collapse of the Soviet Union...building this Ultra Fast, Long Range, Recon, Interceptor :D

Made using 3 1/72 Hasegawa kits

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?

Great concept and model!!  How much power would that thing put out with those six big engines?

Well done.  This is definitely built in accordance with the "Brute Force" theory of aerodynamics.  Lots of power in those engines.

Dude, you should have painted somewhere on that plane in plaid, because that thing should be able to hit Ludicrous Speed.  Sweet job.

That has got to be the closest formation flying I have ever seen.  Would look good in Red Arrows, Thunderbirds or Blue Angels.
