That's one funny looking aeroplane, but very good nonetheless.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Does the Dutch Air Force use a similar trainer scheme to the RAF then?

I read the title and thought, a RNlAF B-70 Valkyrie trainer. Now that is a very interesting idea !

Thanks David but I drove by my local hobby shop this afternoon. Have all the black paint I'm going to need.
Now for some time. Can you send THAT to my place?
