Can you imagine painting that on a plane....even an Airbus doesent deserve that, LOL
Ok I have decided to go ahead with the all composite fuselage. I laid up a nose and tail to use as new plugs, and will fabricate a new center section complete with "double bubble" cross section. Join them all together and make one uber plug, including vertical tail.
I have visions of an all molded airframe. Tools that very scale and detailed static and flying models can be made from. So it can be a dual purpose model. Now what operator of the MD wouldent want one painted in their livery to hang somewhere?
