    Haven't done aircraft in a while, so I figured that I might as well satisfy my more morbid interests and model one of my favorite aircraft: the MXY7 Piloted Bomb.

    I'm ashamed to admit that my design borrows heavily from the KEL model, but frankly, I'm quite impressed with the design and have thus used it as inspiration.

    My design will include a cockpit and I might as well practice my drawing skills and include a pilot as well.

    Reminds me of that old Cheech and Chong album when the Japanese Air Force General tells them men what they are going to do, and "Chong" yells out, "You F'n nuts!". :)
