Now that's got to be breezy in the cockpit at cruising speed!  :o :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! :)

Similar question: is this (maybe yes…) the first example ever of a jetplane with open cockpit and swept wing? congratulations... :thumbsup: ;D

Ericr, you have a great eye for making combinations that look like they ought to be real!

This is something that I have been trying to build,  well done and how did you do it?

thanks all !

This is something that I have been trying to build,  well done and how did you do it?

I had to cut off wings from the B1-B (to bere-used soon, obviously  ;) ) and to devise somthing to attach the C135 wings : essentially a few bits of plasticard attached to the fuselage.
Then I had to re-smooth the fuselage : this is done with relatively thin plasticard, which has the advantage of naturally taking quite nice curves.
This should be visible to the experienced and skilled modellers around : my tricks are simplistic and quite cheap  ;D
