Gorgeous work and my compatriots on the V-22 agree.  Our only nit-pick is that the wings and engine nacelles are built by Bell, not Boeing, and final V-22 delivery is from Bell's plant in Amarillo.

I`m really happy it went down well with the guys on the V-22 and you will have to apologise for me with regards to the whole Boeing/Bell issue.  :)

With the weather playing ball today I thought some better pictures of the CV-230 were in order.

Still gorgeous!!  I'd love to see a forest fire fighting version with a MAFS in the cargo bay and able to hover and drop a pump and hose, much like the Firehawk, to take on more water.

Niiice idea and build. This could be a morph to other ideas like a VTOL Spooky!

Side note, everyone on that carrier better be on tie-downs, and anchors- or good swimmers.
