tHEY COME IN ALL SHAPES AND SIZES

I wanted to do something strange and fun here. I decided o do three airplanes that were real and three fantasy planes. The Real planes are the Xp 55 ASSENDER, a Canard-pusher Fighter plane, the F4D Skyray, a delta wing plane, and the XF-5-F Skyrocket a twin engined plane. The Fanstasy planes are the Batplane (Holy smokes Batman!) a modified p 40, the plane from the 1936 movie THINGS TO COME and a x winged glider, It looks like an "X" when viewed from all angles thanks to the anhedral/dihedral of the wings and tail and the forward sweep - sweep back of the flying surfaces.
Believe it or not I actually got the "things to come" to fly.

These models should be considered for builders with experience!

The book is 64 pages with 12 11 x 17 CAD drawings
