I think the lower design is better Dizzy, the top one has too stylish a car outline to be soviet

So THAT'S what they did with old Mig-9 drop tanks!  ;D ;)
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! :)

AFAIK, there were at least 27 ChADI vehicles thoroughput the years, some of them record holders in their respective classes.

Meanwhile, Mos Eisley, space port... err, or wasn't it Chrakov?

Not 100% happy with the self-made decals, since they tended to bleed under the coat of varnish - it's a kind of reddish glow. But, thanks to the deep red trim on the car, this flaw almost looks like a natural design twist. Looks pretty retro, but I think it has a late Soviet touch?

Fantastic! Will it keep an open cockpit?
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

No (even though that would be an interesting alternative!), there's the rest of the 1:144 Tonka canopy lurking around on the work bench somewhere. And the shock cone in the air intake will also grow and probably protrude even forward of the lower lip.
