Have to be sitting when viewing picture.  When standing, I lean to one side as brain tries to convert image to symmetric.
In combat, just seeing asymmetric aircraft can cause enemy pilots to swerve off course as their brains get confused.  With dire consequences   :o
First there was stealth,,, now the deadly effects of just seeing asymmetric opponents for pilots who have not trained specifically in air-to-air asymmetric aircraft combat.
Could it cause radar guided missiles to swerve enough to become near misses ?

Sorry; "standing" may have been the wrong English word.
The other explanation is that I turned the picture 90 degrees to look like flying.
On the wall picture, you can see why the asymmetric layout was chosen: to leave room for the curtain!

That really finished up nicely, mon ami!

I especially like the bonus picture of the Complete Tophe Gallery!

Well done!

Thanks a lot.
This is not the complete gallery of mine, but the very big models part of it. I made more than 100 models as a total, see http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/ThankingIgor.htm ...

Thank you for that link to your gallery, mon ami! There were some models I hadn't seen before.

Your improved Mirage and Shooting Starliner are absolute wonders!

Outstanding, inspiring work!

Dear Brian, thank you too for the inspiration you gave me (the Shooting starliner was made after your huge airships)...

It's always nice to find uses for all those window decals in the stash, mon ami!
