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:
