Whoa! That's a strange duck. Kinda like an OV-10 Bronco, a Flying Barrell, and a Bell Sioux all mixed together. Nice one Niki!

I don't know why I didn't think of this one myself. I've seen it many times before, and I think it's even made in my part of the world (southern England). Can you imagine how difficult that cockpit would be to make from paper or card though?! :shock:

The very front of the cockpit wouldn't be too hard. It's similar to the S-55 in a way. The back part of the cockpit wouldn't be too hard either. It's the joining of the two that would be horrendous. And no! I'm not going to try designing it.

Chris, it is indeed made in your part of the world, on a farm actually. I like this plane, really unique. Apart from the cockpit, the rest is pretty straightforward, the wings have no sweep or taper, the boom are pretty easy, even the ducted engine would be relatively easy to design and build.
