Found these at the recent Shizuoka Model Show.

Tophe will probably like this one:

Tophe will probably like this one:




LIKE? He'll be ecstatic! Twin booms, pusher engine AND asymmetry, all in one model.  ;D ;)

The only things he won't go for are the socking great guns sticking out of the front.
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! :)

Why asymmetry? The 2 wings look identical to me.
BTW, where is a rear wheel/landing gear? I see 3 aligned wheels and nothing under the tails. If there is one under the central rear engine, it has a remarkably short wheelbase.
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

Isn't the port wing longer than the starboard?

If it isn't, it should be.  ;D ;)

Thank you for the link Dizzy  :thumbsup:
some of the stuff in the photos was wonderful, the RW and the Whiff and the odd!
Redone 19/08/15  the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady added 07/10/18   take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.   wow, its like freefalling into the Geofront

Yeah - the third wheel is a tricker. Certainly a short wheel base. Wings look the same size to me. Besides all that, it is a cracking model. Love the camp colours.

I confirm completely! :wub: :wub: :wub: :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :bow:
Just: I accept the long tubes plainly if they are not guns but perfume sprayers... (what-if!)
