Well worth the effort - a very good-looking result. The "Bunch with the Punch" would have been proud! :thumbsup:

I like it. The wings still slightly forward even at full sweep seems to look better than slightly angled back from the line of the fixed portion.

*That made sense in my head, but now I come to re-read it...  :unsure:

Very good indeed, and wholly believable, in a different time/space continuum anyway.  :thumbsup:

A techie question though, why do VG Phantoms not need the anhedral tailplanes? I've seen 3-4 models of them and they all have flat tailplanes.
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! :)

Regards

Another point of difference? Maybe there's a perceived problem with the wings striking them when swept? :unsure:

Dunno, but to have them anhedral would hark back to the original a/c better...

Very good.

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

I do like that  :thumbsup:

In certain theatre's it might well need some form of I.D. markings I would have thought as there's such a resemblance to a Mig 23 from some angle ? The return of D Day Stripes or BPF bands ?  ;D

That head on photo really gives it a Soviet look. Nice work all around!
