Pretty!  I reckon that open cockpit gets quite breezy at speed and altitude.

@EricR - That B-One with C-135/707 wings looks surprisingly right as it has all of the features where they belong and looks very convincing.  Convincing enough to pass for a real subject if placed innocuously on the display table among other real world subjects.  Though the yellow paint scheme might have to be altered to include "Hughes Air West" markings to give it some legitimacy.  :smiley:

What Jeffry said.  I could easily see it in Hughes Air West markings, too.

It's got a real Convair flavor to it.

Concur with my esteemed colleagues, this one's fantastic!

My mom would applaud your color choice here eric.

Well done!

Yes,   I see some Convair influence.

Another fine combo, Convair vibes or not.

thanx a lot !

I prefer red/yellow/blue, to concentrate just on the shape of the aircraft,
but if you would like to make it in more "real-worl" markings why not ?  ;)
1/144 would be possible too I guess, and less problematic for storage  ;D

Wow! That looks fantastic!  :-*

This looks like a design from the time when airliners weren't just designed for maximum fuel efficiency. Could really see this an a 1970's airline livery.  :smiley:
More of this, please! Hmmm. B-58 wings on an airliner fuselage?
Cheers,
