Great fun. Why not do away with the tailplane altogether?

I think the Javelin and MiG-21 featured such a Delta + Tail layout, this seems very possible. ;)

Looks perfectly logical to me, compared to those earlier versions.   ;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! :)

I DO hope the upper wing has variable incidence!  ;D ;)

Variable incidence and reversible stagger would be good.  :wacko: ;D

I didn't think of reversible stagger, but variable incidence would involve both planes of course  ;)

Hmmmmm, you could have pivots at the top of the struts so the upper wing tilted and the lower one stayed fixed...........  ;)

Belated congratulations! :thumbsup:
