But I wouldn't want to pilot that thing. I don't think those view slits on the canopy can even allow the pilot to taxi the runway, let alone hit targets.
Do you plan to get the Stubo done by Nobi as well? That looks good too.
i was just on nobi's site and just saw he had one.i am thinking about it, but imight get some other ones scince i just finished this one.
yea i wouldnt whant to land it either. you have to jetison everything to get down!
When the prop diameter is about equal to the wingspan and the rudder's smaller than t*ts on a mouse you gotta be thinkin'- there's some aeronautical engineer going home tonight to a wife and warm potatoes...and there's some dumb pilot who puts his life in his hands.
Nice clean work, Nothing!
...and to think, the Stubo is meant to be a dive bomber. :twisted:
Anyway, I forgot to mention -- the shadows cast by the finished model really adds a lot of life to it. Great job on both the model and the photos.
Nice! I especially like that base!
Definitely inspired by the Gee Bee racer in some way. I'm sure it was a handful and a half to keep in the air.
I guess we'll never know. They pulled the plug on that program before it even got to the prototype stage.
Very nice build and presentation.
I specially like the propeller. It is very well done.
thanks guys for all the nice comments!
The Luft46 site some info on these and the fellas who put them to paper....which is as far as these got in real life!
Yeah. I love that site (Luft'46).
Great work, congratulations!
