Correct! Your call BEagle.

Try this?

MiG-105 Spiral lifting body. I was going to build up to it like my He-112 and Mitsubishi X-2 prompts, but I see that doesn't work on here.

BEagle 31st Jul 2021 13:51

MiG-105 it is indeed. Hideous looking thing!

You have the helm!!

Pypard 31st Jul 2021 14:55

I shall leave it the requisite 24 hours and post something :)

Try this: the flying verandah.

The dinghy looks Dutch or Belgian.

Noyade 1st Aug 2021 12:40

The flying verandah is the Saunders Kittiwake.

Thanks Noyade - Sorry all, it will have to be OPEN HOUSE....

Then at the bottom line this one will show to be easy as well?

To be honest I spent too much time going down the Breguet path - I did not realise the original version was a twin jet.
I think this is the machine in question...

Yes, and I believe that's what Bear's exhaust 'eyes' belong to. Just need him to confirm/deny.
