It all looked so ridiculous until those four wings and canopy topped it off, now it is totally convincing. Brilliant!  :wub:
Cheers.

Brilliant.  Lysander wings are the perfect shape for this sort of madness.

Woah!  I've been told that with the right amount of wind, the Lysander could take off vertically ... this thing might do it if you breathe hard at it!  :)

Very nice!   :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Jeepers, so you used TWO Lysander kits an a Duck as well?

The mind boggles at the 'opposition potential' as with Ericr's creations!  :o

It really looks the part with four wings though, wonderful thinking.  :thumbsup:
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! :)

All courtesy of Toad! He started the project many years ago, and gave it to me when I was down in Sarnia a few years ago. My interpretation is not the same as his original vision, but maybe he'll get the urge and do it his way.  ;D

I'm going to say it again, "Where's the "fugly"?" She's a very attractive little aircraft! :thumbsup:

I'm impressed.............and await further postings detailing other aircraft produced by Farley.  We might even write the "Putnam" on this poorly researched company.
