Good job Dave.
I can't say I like it but it's an interesting shape.
Well done.

That's excellent, makes me think of a grown-up Pterodactyl.

Thanks gentlemen,

This project wasn't about pleasing shapes. I intended it to be a caricature of bombers in the mid thirties. Goal was to make it ugly/weird awkward...

As we know beauty is in the eye of the beholder...;-)

A goal you reached magnificently.
Can't fault your craftsmanship (are we allowed to say that? craftspersonship?).  I just think it should have a "normal" tail with rudders in the "proper" place (or twin booms).  I'm obviously more conventional than I like to think.   :unsure:

It's unique, it's crazy, it's ugly as an interwar bomber should be, what's not to like?
