Good model! (I say that as a Mustang fan...) :thumbsup:
Years ago, one of us built such a half F-82 (with external F-82 wings though), but it had military colours and roundels and guns like a killer, so I prefer your gentle dreamy one... (I say that as a naive pacifist) ;)

So the inevitable reciprocal ie. Hotspur with a laminar flow wing got me thinking - would that have been enough to keep gliders relevant in the jet age, allowing the glider to be towed at high subsonic speeds? ;)

I wonder: where will the other half of the F-82 go into? ;D
We will see, no hurry... The surprise will probably be wonderful ;)

Do335 & Hotspur (& F-82), red : hybrid aircraft/animals e.a.

a hint at a backstory ? how about :
a school picnic, a couple of teachers on one side, pupils on the other, and food & drinks in the central trunk & pod
with a radar to detect hot spots

A mega-hybrid if EVER I saw one!  ;D :thumbsup:
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! :)

This belongs in some sort of movie like Crimson Skies or something diesel punk!

Thinking again about it: as there are on this model 2 fuselages and 2 engines, this is a "normal" F-82, no? ;D
(Thanks for the inspiration: I am going to draw an asymmetric F-82 this way, without Do335/Hotspur influence) ;)
