HIKOKI 1946. KYUSHU SHINDEN J7W4
« on: December 09, 2009, 04:32:53 pm »
I´ve seen several versions of one of the most interesting and advanced aircraft of the WWII; The Kyushu Shinden, so it was difficult to make a new one.

This is the result; in progress at now. I´m making it at the same time than the P-48.

This really is going to be nice---it's a great design, right up there with the Huckbein.
Love the swept front wings and the fuel tanks on the wingtips.
I'll keep my eye on this baby!!!!

Forward swept wings are rather interesting - I like the twin tails on the fuselage.  Very interesting development, and the tip tanks are very cool.

Looking forward to more of this!

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?

Nice one, Paco.   Hard to tell if its coming or going!

Interesting or wonderful, I am not sure which adjective is the most appropriate...
I have loved the game of finding the differences with the J7W1 (my favourites are the bubble canopy and twin-fins, but I noted the jet, the swept wings and foreplanes...) :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Actually I think there are more differences than similarities...  ;D

Its configuration reminds me to Sukhoi Su 47 Berkut, except for the position of the cabin.

OH! I suddenly realize: this is a magic idea you got: a double fin would have fins of half area... I am going to draw a CGI Mustang family this way.
Thanks again :thumbsup:
