Does the aircraft above remind anyone else of the Planet Satellite, details below?

It certainly does, but fatter...........
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Kitnut617's working on doing exactly that.

Yes, but it's on the back-burner for the moment. I decided I'd try to draw the wing/fuselage connection in 3D and then get it 3D Printed. This will lead to other builds I have in mind. The wing/fuselage development has turned out quite complicated doing it in 2D and lately my mind hasn't been on it.

It's at this stage at the moment.

If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

This is oddly appealing to me ....

I try to learn from the mistakes of others who take my advice.

Has potential but I think there's too much superfluous ... junk ... hanging off of it. :thumbsup:

Trim off some of the excess weight & I'd be happy for it to carry my equipment - just don't expect me to fly in it! ;)

If the pilot ain't willing to risk his life in the plane, why should I be? :unsure:

Give it a proper tail appendage and you'd improve it 100% IMHO. Front end almost looks alive ? Something the Cybermen might use ?

You guys seen the one in flight in the background? Top left. Looks a bit like box wing/biplane. Much more “reasonable” concept to my eyes (oblong jet engines aside)

By Michal Kušnír found on the Facebook Scale Modellers page/group.

"One of my more recent builds. Old SMER kit of MC 200 Saetta in 1/48. There are many mistakes and tail wheel broke off during photo session. It was mainly used as a testbed for Gunze paints, which I had no previous experience with. So I didn't pay too much attention to details (such as shape and position of "cloud" patterns). It can be said, that it is what-if build."
