Ahem, yes I have a tendency to see double tails but not necessary double noses, three bodies could work as well (P-38-like) ;)

Thanks!
And do you know the BiConcorde A (asymmetric) with high price panoramic passenger seats?

Our friend Vostok7 built a Twin-Concorde model, see https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/airfixtributeforum/2012-civil-aircraft-gb-vostoc7-s-concorde-t32076-s60.html (and a X-wing Concorde, and 2 RAF Concordes)... :thumbsup:

On the normal Concorde, do you know why the wing is in low position? It is simple: a high wing would require long/fragile lateral landing gears. But on the Twin-Concordes, the lateral landing gears are simply in the fuselages (like in the Twin-Mustang) so the wing can be in high position:

Nice idea, but spoilt by the mega-intrusive Photobucket watermarks on the pics.  :banghead:
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! :)

You are right.
There is one more clean here: https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/topic.asp?h=0&f=191&t=1061837&i=60  <_<
but as drawing, not as plastic model there :-\
EDIT: there is also a whole discussion thread about the Bomcorde at https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/military-concorde.1460/
EDIT2: and a Concorde USAF Interceptor at https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/files/file/52174-concorde-usaf-intercepter/
