Very interesting, I like the plastic bubble fuselage - is that made from a bottle? First time I can recall seeing anything like that. That would look very cool painted with a canopy area masked off!

I have a feeling that it will end up nose heavy since the fan is mid mounted and all the gear would appear to go in the forward fuselage. CG is probably close to where the front lip of the fan is now. Mounting the fan farther back and shortening the exhaust duct would help and give more options for locating everything else.

Vertical tails would look a little better canted outwards I think, but that is subjective.

I'll be interested to see this one progress.
