Vacation time is over and my engineer returned completly relaxed and inspired to do some new stuff.

This time he will go for an airliner again. To start with, he takes this one here:



He had his plans before the vacation already, but sitting on the pool deck of the cruise ship in the sun, with some nice cocktails he got some better ideas. So he modifed the wings more thna he originally wanted to:



Lets see what the result will be

Caravelle wings on a Connie, A NEAT idea!

Model shops are having a run on Caravelle kits lately!  ;D
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! :)

Regards
Kit

While I am doing a few tests for engine alternatives for the L2049 (nothing a stage that Ican show so far), I also worked on the fuselage/wing connection.

A lot of putty and some 3d printed parts, still wip....

The sanding continues....
Those 3D printed parts printed in PLA are really a pain to sand, takes quite long until you see na effect. But i think the end of putty&sanding is near here.



Now printed some engines for the L2049. No, I will not use all six of them (well, who knows, maybe...), but printing with an SLA printer has the nice effect that printing time is only depending on the height of an object. So printing 2, 4, ,6 or eight besides each other takes the same time, just more material. Therefore I always print more than I need, just to have some spare parts if one did not print good at all.
