Oh, cool! Thanks, Flyer - I'll have a peruse!  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Later:

YESS!! Those will work, and there's enough material in a lot of them to reshape the blades and cut the diameter down to something more manageable.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks for that, Flyer - have a Pat on the Back - or even two, I'm in a generous mood (takem while you can gettem, it don't happen that often with me...  ;D ;) )

Thanks Brad F.  That website looks to be a great resource.

That's even better, is it from the same site?

Never mind, I see it is... should have looked better!

Thanks, I might have to revisit and spend more money...  ;D

Stumbled upon this...



Did Batman change sides? And I find the exhaust stubs (???) under the cockpit quite interesting!  :o

...and that explains a lot.  :wacko:

If they are exhaust stubs, and yes they do look like some, then why does it need them ? Or am I missing something ?

Perhaps it works like the Caproni-Campini, with a piston engine driving the compressor?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

In the cartoon book "Economix" explaining economy, I have seen several drawings of aircraft, not completely realistic nor crazy but somewhere in between:
(Ju-87, MiG-15, Super-Constellation, DC-10)
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]

Perhaps - thinking laterally on a what-if site, the shark teeth are just painted on and there is no air intake at the front (in the teeth). The - your - eyes see what they want to see and the black is not an air intake.

Then - the exhaust stubs are from a cooling device or compressor for a nuclear propulsion unit. Such an engine would explain why this jet was such an opponent. Simple really.
