Thank you.

I have continued sanding and gluing the old plane, and I have painted the underside of the new one: <_<

Looking good!  I really like the Mustang with the round wing - it looks as if it should work and be really, really fast.  :)

The annular "Omega" Mustang looks very good! The wing looks like it was made for the Mustang.

Thanks!

Then painting the side above of the old plane and colouring propeller blades. Just remain the canopies to turn black: <_<

That pair are pretty darn good.  :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! :)

Thanks a lot!
I have less skills than frank2056 that made a perfect LeeRichardson Annular, that is why I have made something else, not a bad copy but different. ;)

I add mirror copies of the components into zwilling planes: <_<
