That is an interesting idea, and seems to work. Good job.

A long time ago I had thought of using a large (1/32??) Corsair wing on a  (1/72) Short Stirling. It had REALLY tall landing gear because it was so high off the ground--a bent wing would have solved it. Alas, the makings were sold off. I did make an "updated" Stuka-like naval dive bomber for the Japanese using Corsair wings---lots of possibilities!
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!

Yes the change of scale of the Corsair's wing is a great Idea. I want put four 1/72 engines in a 1/32 spitfire. All this thing make this hobby... interesting.

Mental!
Reminds me of the Supermarine 224 (http://www.rjmitchell-spitfire.co.uk/spitfire/images/g_type224gullwing.jpg).
 ;D ;D

Yes really have the same proportions between the wings profile and the "tail moment"

Difficult work, and perfect finish.  :thumbsup:

How about with folded wings and finish on overall sea blue, like the version of the Navy?.

Pablo, I may try to add your Cortang to my gallery of Mustang (simplified) profiles, but maybe I will draw only the interesting lengthening of fuselage. For the wings and tailplanes, finding a Corsair profile source and adjusting its scale to my Mustang would be uneasy. What name would you use for a Cortang reverted back to using Mustang wings and tailplanes while keeping your graceful lengthening? :unsure:

As you know Mustang is a kind of horse, if you will make another variant You can think in a comparation with other horse more high or long.
Perhaps...Morgan, pinto, palomino, appaloosa and the number P-52,53 etc But you can call as you want.

Well, this is incredible.  You make it look easy.  Sure came together in a professional-looking result.  Like it was meant to be this way.
Very, very impressive work on a great concept/idea.

Wow.   :wub:   :thumbsup:   :bow:

Yes, JHM, you swallowed Pablo's great fake...! The Cortang model was a true-life pure-JMN work about a top-top-secret winner, while all the workbench pictures are fake, to pretend this was a crazy dream of what-if modeller. Wrong! :lol: ;D A so perfect "final result" simply cannot be non-professional invention, this is impossible, but of course engineer/industrial marvel. Let's be serious :angry: ;) :lol:
