Great back story and build! It's a beautiful plane!
What he said.  The backstory was quite plausible and the model looks "right".

For the viewer, well worth the wait  :smiley: Well out there ... but in a totally believable way  :D

And for the creator? My guess would be: Birthing pains over, endorphins about to flood in  ;D

If the creator of the inspiration is happy, I am happy! :D

Thanks for the profile, mate. I'm really glad you think I've done it justice. :icon_alabanza:

"Creator"! I suddenly feel a giddy-making upswelling of megalomania coming on ...

But, now that it has passed, you have made this one your own! I would never thought of combining the Boomer and Focke-Wulf wings - frickin' brilliant! I had fun playing with the concept but you've taken it to a whole new level  :smiley: :smiley:
