Victor wings would do you, maybe?

I think I would go with some C-135A wings, maybe ---

True, probably easier to find a cheap -135 than a Victor.

The engines would be the difficult bit, they're like B-2 engines but upside down and on the undersurface!
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! :)

Could you cut the wings outboard of the Comet's engines and attach the -135 wings?
Maybe have the upper surfaces of the wings mounted over the engines and the underside parts cut back by the appropriate amount?

Maybe so, depends how the root area looks on the real design I guess. We'll have to wait and hope they publish more details in Pt 2 of the article next month.

There may be more details already in THE book on the subject, called something like 'Cancelled off the Drawing Board'? I've got it at home, but I'm not... :(

Fair enough. You'll work something out, I'm sure!  :thumbsup:

Picking away, little by little on these same projects ! A couple are getting close. I'm making them all with removeable landing gear, so I can have them at rest on the tarmac, take off, fly a mission, and the alight. Hey, they're my toys, I mean models, and imagination has always been the biggest draw to this hobby for myself. Especially in this whif world. I blame Shep Payne.

You're not the only one that flies their builds, there's a few online games that allows you to actually do that. Plus the simulators are almost real!

I pity those who only ever 'imagine' how perfectly matched the paint colours and rivet spacing will be on their next Bf-109G.  :rolleyes:

Re: The Captain's Cabin- Building again ! New Year Same Old Me

I've been sober since the new year. I wonder why I'm even on the earth in the evening, without a beer or a glass of wine, but when I wake up the next morning I love it. Getting in shape, trying to lose a few pounds and eat better, and making major headway into cleaning up all of my junk and getting organized.

I believe one of the reasons I lack motivation to finish e=anything, is the fact the the photos of the finished product never match the idea in my minds eye. So I'm trying something new. I've downloaded GIMP photo editing software to my laptop. It's a free service, and by all accounts, just as good as/ better than photoshop. The tutorials for it all over the web. Easy enough to follow, but of course, for any old dog, frustrating. This is my first attempt at such. Not bad. Now I need to add a layer for the background. That will be another lesson tomorrow or next day.
