Thanks a lot, both of you!

And here is a slanting view of the P-51 "72nd" + two P-51 "144th":

Thanks! (I take this as cheers not tears)
But you know I am not only enthusiast about booms, I love also asymmetric airplanes, and... this is very possible in a ScaleOrama topic:

You truly have an artist's eye, mon ami and that lovely P-28-28 is proof positive of it!

I really like how even though it's asymmetric, a wonderful sort of balance is achieved by the smaller fuselage.

I'm once again delighted Tophe and smiling as I think of how your work always has such an artistic quality to it.

Thanks a lot for those wonderful words... :)

Now, sorry I come back to symmetry, with a mixed P-51D, tandem wing as 1/72+1/144:

Ahem... the drawing above here was asymmetric by mistake, with a tail more on starboard then central...

Of course a similar Sesqui-Lightning (one Lightning and a half) was possible:
