Here, the double fuselage has a single pilot (one fuselage is empty, tanks only).
But you are right, I may try to play with a version " la P-38"... ;) celebrating even more ericr's model.

nice idea ! please do  ;)

OK , so maybe one more WIP pic as I had the camera out taking some snaps of the Andromeda, I thought I would quickly snap a couple off of the Yunagi  ;D





Anyways, that's enough for now, but thanks for looking

After struggling with serious mojo issues on this build (not that there wasn't any, it just came & went at random :-\) I've just put the last primer coat down.

Next will be an undercoat followed by the final paint scheme.

She doesn't look too bad but I've decided it should have been a "less-is-more" build, with more of the M-1117 undersides left intact & tubes & cables running underneath to the anti-grav units in the actual wheel arches, maybe with additional armour over (under?) the plumbing for added protection. The idea being that it's a semi-field mod, shoe-horning reverse engineered alien technology onto an existing vehicle.

For my own peace of mind, I'm going with this as the v.02 mod, with the shoe-horning cleaned up a bit. :smiley:

Hopefully pic's inside the week.

Ciao! :icon_beer:

Yeah, that might be possible, though it would definite require some major wing redesign, too, to properly anchor those floats to structure (not impossible, but challenging).  The other approach would be to rewing the aircraft with new wings and engine installations more like the V280's where only the prop-rotors and immediate transmissions rotate; that would get your exhausts out of the water.  In that case, you might want to widen the main landing gear sponsons to provide better stability in the water.

Anyone ever consider an MV-22 with a seaplane hull? Not practical but might look cool.
Yeah, it would likely look cool, but as close to the ground as the exhausts of a standard MV-22 get, I suspect you'd really be boiling water with a seaplane, if not immersing the exhausts in water.

Deepen the hull (and reshape it), add floats with deflectors to the wings and it should float high enough not to submerge the exhausts.

Need at least a couple sets to do proper torpedo racks for a SV-22.  I've got a couple posters of the proposal that should help guide improving the old AMT kit.

Thanks,
