Equally as impressive as the first version!  :thumbsup: :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! :)

Looks like a rather nice spaceplane to me. Twin SABRE engines. That blunt nose is to reduce heating during re-entry. And although I can't see the tail end I am sure it is a docking port ;)

But is the glazed front cabin a flight deck, which suggests military, or an observation lounge, which suggests civil?

I was waiting for this.  I knew it was going to be good but this is better than good.

Fantastic work Eric.  One of your best.

and now for something completely different :

it is a kit bash, as well as a scale-o-rama, and on the top of that an alternative livery,
even if there is no trace of an aircraft there






(and it was inspired to me by a picture I saw somewhere on the internet, but I can't find it anymore)
