    I saw this on another website a few months ago and thought that one of the excellent model developers on this site might give it a try. I do not know what copyright rules would apply though. :)

    Bob Penikas of the SCPMC built this up from a fiddlers Green kit, I’ll see if I can get Bob to send me a photo and I’ll post it.

    OK

    Ah, so someone has done some kit bashing to come up with one. I wondered if a B-17 kit had been altered. Thanks for the info. :)

    Rutan & Co. are set to launch again today in California to get the X Prize. It is gonna be neat when everything goes as planned. :)

    I'm thinking Mr. Rutan would have put pusher propellers on it! :D

    Ah, yes -- and the engine nacelles would no longer need green anti-glare paint on them! In fact, the whole paint job should be snappier -- I'm thinking stars, or something.
