It works but it is strange in appearance.  :smiley:

Very clever. Makes me think of old freighters with long-load capabilities ... like the Fleet 50K.

another case of whiffing causing a problem of nose-sitting
(I had to put weight in the rear to avoid it)

Beautiful!!  IMHO, it looks like something that was put together as a moving stage for a movie production.  I'm thinking a b-70 or Concorde nose and cockpit on a Lockheed Constellation would look good for that role, too.

Does appear just a bit nose heavy.   Quandary is add rear ballast or install nose gear.  Inspires doing similar builds.  :smiley:
