Wonderful! :-*
(I imagine it would be an ekranoplane or flying-thing, but it seems there is no curvature of the flat part, so no lift, so this is a boat, yes?)

it was designed as a torpedo boat by the germans, so no flying, but still they did it from floatplane foalts  ;)

Loving the boat, er, boot, all good but that is the cream of the crop. Your imagination must be on full overdrive. Keep it up.  ;)
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

Very nicely done.  At least you painted the "Glen" yellow instead of the submarine (I know that would be a temptation with the Beatle's song out there).  The colors go together well in the paint scheme you did use.

Some time ago Tophe produced this marvelous conception :



and I couldn't resist trying it out in plastic, and in yellow :
the curved wings are a bit sketchy, it was uneasy to obtain;
maybe the best would have been to bend the original wings by heating them, but that seems delicate ...

Could you tell us more about the curved external wings? Is this paper with plastic pylons Inside to make the shape almost solid? Or what? (if this is not top secret)... :)

the external wings are made of curved blister packaging, with two layers of thin plastic sheet to make them smooth;
so they are not very solid, rather a bit flexible  ;) but the hold!

Wonderful! Flexible wings may be patented and could transform you into a billionaire! (if that works, scale 1)... :-\ ;)

The Wyvern has such a particular silhouette, I wanted to have a try at it.

It took the folded wings option of the Trumpeter kit (very fine),
but  this hides the lines a bit ...
