It'll be a Carrier On board Delivery. The door on the slab sides will be ideal. Need to figure out how to fold the wings and tail. I guess A-3 style will do.

Nice.  Shortening the fuselage makes the tail look even bigger.  Cutting chunks out of it prolly improved the fit. :thumbsup:

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

Nice! I had a similar idea a while ago - curious how this one will turn out.  :thumbsup:

That works really well, even with shorter wings.  ;D
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! :)

Thanks you all!

@the Rat: iI didn't think about that, but what a great Idea! Love it. Thanks!

@zenrat: the fit will only be improved if the cuts are straight..Even when I taped the halves together. It was rather difficult to do. Had to adjust the cuts several times.

Will continue the build after holiday.
