Of course, the Lightning-Liner family included a (vertical) double-decker and a twin-double-decker:

Here are the Panoramic-Liners PLi-38A, B, C on a 200% P-38 basis (with R-3420 engines). This would be pleasant for passengers, why should I invent it myself?

Your designs never fail to get me thinking, Tophe!

I especially like the one with two passenger/payload pods.

The split tail planes give this one a Luft '46 look and I keep imagining it re-supplying that famous Antarctic base.

Thanks a lot, Brian!

Payload? Is that a word for passengers? I know I am fat and do represent a load in an airliner, but... are you referring to the SuperCargo SCa-38A, B, C derivatives? (civilian freighters without retractable undercarriage)

The last ones remind me of the Damlier-Benz carrier aircraft

Thanks Frank3k, your idea gave birth to the Frankheed F-3038 airliner (the one with giant propellers but having no more "fragile" landing gears). Thanks again!

My what lovely spats you have there!

Hard to pick a favorite, I'm drooling over all of them!

Thanks Brian.
Well, without giant spats but with passenger pods and parasol wing, it seems not solid enough, what to do? turn biplane?
