    Very nice!

    But I wouldn't want to pilot that thing. I don't think those view slits on the canopy can even allow the pilot to taxi the runway, let alone hit targets. :)

    Do you plan to get the Stubo done by Nobi as well? That looks good too.

    When the prop diameter is about equal to the wingspan and the rudder's smaller than t*ts on a mouse you gotta be thinkin'- there's some aeronautical engineer going home tonight to a wife and warm potatoes...and there's some dumb pilot who puts his life in his hands.

    Nice clean work, Nothing!

    Cheers,

    ...and to think, the Stubo is meant to be a dive bomber. :twisted:

    Anyway, I forgot to mention -- the shadows cast by the finished model really adds a lot of life to it. Great job on both the model and the photos.

    Nice model.

    Definitely inspired by the Gee Bee racer in some way. I'm sure it was a handful and a half to keep in the air.

    I guess we'll never know. They pulled the plug on that program before it even got to the prototype stage.
