Learning and hand drawing the wing, the desktop model...

working on the wing's future, transforming a two S. to a one seater, with new electronics / power plant and for the moment unarmed (could be towered and remoted 20mm AA guns).



Cheers,
Pepper

ya, it's funny to hear all the UFO stories...many near airports. Hmmm, is it an aircraft of some kind (top secret or mundane and at night), or a craft from 20 bazillion light years away, that no one has ever seen before?

I saw a floating light in the sky some years ago, just barely moving, and silent, un-plane, not-so-helicoptery...after driving for a min more or so, came closer..was a blimp with a lit sign, on April Fools day!

Noooo not 20 bazillion, earlier =) ; it's a German/nazi X-plane from the HORTEN brothers. (They began with sailplanes).
the WIP model, this morning a dark yellow coat :

Hi Pepper-M

The sheme look cool!

I was thinking if you charge the Hexagon shape to a polygon that look like a basic shape of a bird feather, and then blend this to end of wings. The plane wing may look like a wing of a bird ;D

A polygon is any shape usually closed.

Below is an example of a interlocking polygon. You could replace the lizard with a bird feather.

Snowman, do you know an artist called M.C. ESHER ? A great artist ! ;) I will keep my hexagon sheme, need to fly above desert battle field on low altitude/high speed, the Rheinmetal-Borsig 30mm "vierling" is ready, mouahahahahahahahaha !!!

Greif : yes ! When my "SEEHUND" will be near the primer coat step, i will start the Horten one seater 1/48 from Dragon (not the revell 1/72 seen in my first posts), but with additional details >
Maybe we could start together ? It would be a pleasure  :)

has anyone done the Horten hears a Who / Dr Seuss joke yet? If not, I have! ;D

Euh, sorry no comprende  ;D
