NC,

You've heard of stand-off scale. We're gonna call this one stand-way-back-and-squint-your-eyes scale.

Been wanting to model this one for a while. Had several starts in different scales, printing plans, up scaling Paper Models. This is the first one to actually get anywhere near completed.

I saw these gliders at the Dollar Tree- don't know if you have them in OZ- and thought it'd make a good 30mm airframe. And after a little closer inspection realised with the swept wing flipped front to back it resembled a Volksjäger.

I glued the fan on and added a little paint to get an idea how it will look.

And, since you're looking, how much should this thing weigh when done? Also, do you think V-tail or elevons for control?
