That looks TERRIFIC!  :thumbsup:

What are the components please, I don't recognise ANY of them!
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! :)

I took a pair of DC-10 1/300 by Hobbycraft. Then I began a 4 engine stretched fuselage version à la Airbus A340, taking a graft from one to the other. Remaing parts include a short fuselage and a pair of long tail engines. Et voila.
