Wonderful! Please explain us the principle of your creation... Lengthened Mustang with Corsair wings and tailplanes? Great idea! Why this lengthening? (it is a true enrichment in itself, but is there a technical reason or else?) :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I'm glad you like the Cortang, the cause of the bigger fuselage is his relation with the wing profile, the wing of the Corsair have a larger profile and the "tail moment" need to be more far. I'm thinking in a Corsair in the European Theatre, as you know, the engine and compressor  of the F4U, his propeller, wheels, etc are quietly different, and this factor could be introducing another logistical problem more.  I try to minimize all this things and with the parts of my previous "what if" make this Cortang.

Wow!

I can't help thinking how that design just screams "Heinkel" from some angles.

I pity the pilot that would have seen one of these on his tail.
Kick-butt model! :thumbsup:

Thanks Y'all and
Wow!

I can't help thinking how that design just screams "Heinkel" from some angles.

Well the theory of the He112, whose wing area is smaller, is similar because the distance of the tail to the wing is longer than other planes, looking for a better close turn angle. and I think this is the cause of it's similar

I pity the pilot that would have seen one of these on his tail.
Kick-butt model! :thumbsup:

Well, for the same reason I tell above...I Pity the pilot too

Thanks for your words y'all
