Booltonpol F.122B
« on: December 29, 2017, 10:08:53 PM »
I have been interested by Unicraft twin-boom P.122 rocket fighter at http://www.unicraft.biz/on/bp122/bp122.htm
and I got it for Christmas:
(from my Mini-Miraj topic http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=7650.0 :)
- the Novo kit was sent by Unicraft kits in Ukraine, thanks (with a Boulton-Paul resin kit I will show later, and a MiG-3 vacform-like model).

My what-if project from it (even if the P.122 project is already a what-if-built-for-Real) is:
-   having the fins becoming tailplanes (horizontal, not vertical)
-   having the tailplane becoming foreplane (in a triplex-boom layout somehow)
-   adding fins from the Novo Mirage III tanks (vertical, not horizontal) at wingtips

Your boundless imagination has been working overtime recently, mon ami!

You certainly spotted the perfect kit to use as a base for this wonderful concept, Tophe!

There will be putty-sanding-repeat work...
(As I am almost unable to use the thermoformed canopy, I used an extra canopy from my injected P-51D kit)

That's a nice dose of PSR there, mon ami!

You're a very brave soul and I'm sure your past experience will help you prevail through all that sanding.

Watching with interest,

Thanks. Sanding is delayed because I have no more sand paper, and sunday shops are closed here.

I hesitate about the pod/fuselage position, it may be far rear without being ridiculous... (this will be decided soon)

Interesting configuration.  Of course that kind of thing happens at BTS.  Keep going, keep posting !

Yet another delightful concept from the Tophe Whiff Factory!

Great stuff, mon ami! Love the creative configuration!

Will look forward to your next update.
