Looks like a unknown child of U-2 and Me-262 :D
Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

The R-6 "Icarus" was developed by Consolidated (Convair) and Avro Canada in the late 40's as a high altitude reconnaissance aircraft. It flew operationally with the RCAF, USAF, RAF and RAAF. For a short period in the early 50's a few were leased to the French AF. They flew a number of successful missions during the Korean War. NASA acquired 3 of these in 1953 for high altitude missions, including photo mapping, air sampling, chase planes and other missions.

Wow did that ever finish up a treat!

That's one of the cleanest, sharpest, most unique builds I've seen in a while!

Well done, ed!

+1 to all previous comments. You would never know there is a B-24 somewhere in there.

Great job!  :)
