It's the black wings Max.  They are giving me the urge to paint it black with red pinstripes and bat symbols.

Which cartoon is that from Scoot?  Bats has the look of an animated Adam West which I like as I consider him to be THE definitive Batman.

I'm calling this Project DeHaviraCanaberra.

Today I managed to get enough fishing weights into the front of the engine nacelles to keep her tail up.
Fuselage is the Airfix Mossie Mk II/VI/XVIII kit.
I'm racking my brain for UK biting/stinging insects other than mosquito and hornet and so far have only come up with Horse Fly (not a bite you forget), bee, wasp, gnat and midge - none of which leap out at me as a good "De Havilland" name.

Makes me wonder what a Mosquito fuselage would look like with Meteor wings and engines, perhaps with extended outer panels cut down from the Mosquito ones. It could be an alternative night-fighter with Venom-style setup instead of the tandem seat one.

Neo: How can that be?

A Veeeeeery interesting idea that.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

RW Huey almost finished.  I am just having trouble keeping one of the door windows in place in the door and have resorted to epoxy rather than my usual white glue.  The curvature of the window is different to the curvature of the door and it keeps springing out.

Other shed time today was spent packing four model aircraft to enter into Model Expo at the weekend and 12 model cars to put on the club table.

In tribute to Adam West a Polar Lights 1/25 Batmobile will be pulled out of the stash and built up Factory Stock.
I have two.  The "glue kit" and the "full detail" (choice of engines, photo etch, figures, parts to build any version of the Batmobile that appeared in the TV Series).  I shall be building the full detail kit with the turbine engine.

Yup our t.v. flagged up he had died. Didn't realise he was that old. Fond memories of that Batman series  :thumbsup: I'll never forget the shark hanging onto his leg as he climbed into the Batcopter, although that may have been the film ?
