Story posted this image:



 in the Uninhabited and computer driven inspiration. It looks like a basic design, so I tried making a 3D model of it. I don't know if I'll print it, so I'll leave it here for now.

The prop is a bit too wide and the pitch is the same on both sides; I'll have to fix it.



The wings are narrower and have a greater sweep than in the drawing. I didn't like the way the wide wings looked - I'll redo them if anyone thinks they'll look better. I changed the vertical tail positions a bit as well. The rudders would not be able to move as they are in the drawing.

Yes, a great improvement. As rendered, the overall layout looks much more plausible than the original illustration.  :smiley:
