The Sywarrior chimera could almost be a real design from Douglas or SARO, some
of the latter's late '40s - '50s designs for patrol aircraft had a similar wing 'look'.
Granted they were seaplanes, but I could see a landplane version of some of them
looking very similar to this straight-winged Whale.

I think the oldest source among Ericr's 'special' Mustangs was an asymmetric P-51 but I do not find it in this topic, maybe in the seaplane one: <_<

last but not least :
after having finished it I see potential improvement of course, but the most salient features are visible here
Another recent "Mustang" as source (thank you!): <_<

Oh yes, I DO like that!  :thumbsup:

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Looking good! :wub:
The red colour is surprising for an airliner but very possible for Firemen Airlines (or Communist Aeroflot)... ;)
