Genie-armed VG EE Lightning F7.

Possibly.

Might be an F3 with Genies.

Although it might be piston-engined.

Now that's going to make for some 'interesting' propeller arrangements...........  :unsure:

One at the front and one at the back...

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

No, sorry. I meant it might be a piston aircraft not a piston VG EE Lightning.

Right lads as it looks as though the rules are ok for everyone I will set up the GB's threads and move this over in the coming week. I will also invest the Mod's with their "powers" at the same time - doesn't hurt, much, lads  :rolleyes:

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! :)

Ok may be a silly question :rolleyes: - I have been planning a build for a while based on a pre-production version of the Mig-21R.
I am about to start this at long last and it might fit into this; there is no evidence that the Soviets did there usual squadron strength operational trials before putting the final version of the aircraft, the first of the 3rd generation -21s into service. So would a version of the pre-proddy plane fit the rules? Not sure this is making sense or is waffle! :banghead:

Well I've been invested and I'm still standing.

Come to think of it though, I'm only standing...... :blink:

That sounds fine to me: one of those Wooksterish subtle whiffs that has everybody scratching their heads to figure out what's 'wrong' about it..... :wacko:

Just a suggestion, I've always felt that the Cold War ended in '91 with the collapse of the Soviet Union.  I know it's a point that can be debated and I'm not worried about it.

Just hope I can join in, I've got a busy period of work coming (may last years :blink:).  I've got a grand plan involving rockets and sunshine, otherwise I might do something a bit less intensive.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

I think Rule #3 gives you so much scope for interpretation that it'd be silly to argue against something just 'cos it dates from 1991 not 1989.

I was stationed in Berlin in 1991 and there was plenty of the wall still in place so i dont think we will argue about the date
