DH-1000 Half-Vampire
« on: December 31, 2017, 11:15:07 PM »
Maybe you remember I built a Twin-Vampire
(see http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=7511.0 )
But I got a third Novo Vampire 1/72 from Unicraft Models, and I plan to make a half-size Vampire from it.
The wing will have reduced span and be very low not middle-wing.
The booms will not be on the wings but on the side of the fuselage, not going far in the rear, and holding a T-tail (or Pi-tail more exactly).

Yes, or powered by mental force, without chemicals, in a sci-fi spirit...

EDIT: the model is almost finished, just paintwork's remaining (my models never have wheels)
