ah, I don't have a view from above yet : I will try soon
Thanks! I'd be glad to improve, while I already posted a first picture in the History of asymmetric aircraft (at the current end of it): http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/Asymm_addition.htm . Thanks again!

Don't be shy: you are the genius one (the kit manufacturer never imagined a curved airplane, I am very sure) ;)

Brilliant - this works extra well  :)
If could find similar wings for 1/72 build.  Do same plus A-10 engines on fuselage as a flex wing version.

Looks natural.

Inspired by this perhaps?




I need to reshape the nose on a Me-262 and play it straight other than a realistic shark "face"

Perhaps add actuators to strum the strings as you fly, providing your own background music?

I have a few small bottles ("mignonettes") in my stash, and I realized I haven't tried a twin-boom yet

so here is a Flying Boxcar (1/144) with Gentiane
(Tophe, don't be afraid, I didn't even drink it, so the bottle is still full actually  ;D )

You missed an opportunity to paint it purple!
Looks good, though. Is that the Roden boxcar kit?
