Looking at the spat placement, i think you have solved the star wars lifting device. Built in-spats! The spats have devine magic to them, and are thus lifted up over the ground due to their sheer awesomeness. By placing them inside the construction, the spats lift up the plane all by themselves! :thumbsup:

Well, "art" is also a way to say that it's "something else"... certainly no longer an aircraft!
This is the main difference between us, Tophe... I go for the plausible, you go for the improbable!!

You are all right, both of you. I do not build aircraft for this planet, I turn dreams solid somehow... Simply fantasy objects, like Star Wars models (or even worse...), yes... ;D

Finished (according to my very low standards, sorry).
I'll show better when the paint is dry:

Here, it is standing on top of a white-spirit pot... ;D
But the final goal is elsewhere, of course, this model will stand on a wooden shelf, to please its manufacturer/modeller... ;D
For a scale 1 equivalent, I don't know - it is not military because I dislike war. As I said, it could be a ghost-buster, with its spats radiating to chase away the bad spirits, something like that. And this deserves for sure an unusual device, so special, with no classical way to be broken apart by the evil waves... >:( :wacko: ;D

most imaginative and delightful
amazing
Thanks! That's how a friend find words to say "the most crazy and impossible, silly"... Thanks BdB, you are more comforting (more effective and cheaper) than their psychiatric pills... :blink: :rolleyes: ;D
