Sam . . . .. you can't escape it do an IL-76 foamie!. . .or perhaps a Dash-7 or even the Avro-Canada Jetliner.. . . North America's first passenger jet.

But I would finish your Concorde first Sam.

Go with something simple first like the DC-9. Less engines is easier.

How about DC9-10/15 is 70's Saudi Arabian Airlines livery?, they had 2 of either 10 or 15 series....

OR

Fokker F28-100 also in Saudia livery as they have few of these in early fleet....

And, if you have a nice grass flying field, you can make things even simpler by foregoing the landing gear and just bellying it in. The DC-9 design is ideal for that.

That would depend on the quality of the grass surface, of course.

Theres An idea Sam. . .make a small 40 inch long DC-9-20 series. . .you know the shortie of the DC-9 family and make it a hand-launch belly lander like my ERJ-145.

Ok done deal here guyzz, DC9-10/15 is Saudi livery as hand launch n belly lander to be done.....

Construction will start right after Constellation's maiden flight at the end of this month!, this will be kool in between n different sort of project before I get back to Concorde build....

Questions...

Would Dollar store 3mm foam board's deporn would be good to make wings n outer skin of fuselage?

Would this be easily able to take LE bends on main wing if I were to make both top n bottom panels form single sheet n just bend at LE and gluing at TE with few airfoil ribs in between reinforced with CF tubes....
