A-10Y Hog 3 (repair)
« on: July 05, 2019, 06:45:27 am »
In 2013, I built a canard XA-10X Hog2:

but it is all broken and I am going to build something different, the technical reason being: fun.

The model is finished now:


This weird asymmetric layout is justified by... top secret reasons, sorry. I am not allowed to tell that more precisely.

Hey, they did stranger things in Star Wars, why not here? Looks wild and cool to me!

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Interesting design Tophe.
The camo scheme is great.  Those two colours got together very well IMO.

Thanks!

Uh, I am not at all the author of this camo, this is why there are roundels and military shark mouth, incredible for a pacifist like me: this was an "EasyKit" with parts already painted, and I built it very fast without painting it again:

But just as hippies often wear cast off military clothing it is quite possible that a pacifist aircraft could be made from a military one and remain camouflaged.
