Looks like an interesting project you have there. The twin boom and dual rudders, and just the overall aircraft in general are reminding me of the Miles Aerovan I took on last year. Endless...

Yes it is! It's reminding me of what I had to go through for the Comet 4, which of course still needs to be flown.
Best of luck with this one Quorneng.

One of my favorite subjects. The clean hinge lines will be worth the added effort. Should be a real beauty.

A bit old, but I finally dug this plane out to take a short video clip, and forgot how well the old GWS FW190 flies. Not the best video, but better than nothing. With a more powerful fan this...

How about a contest using 2 DD brushed motors with nothing but differential mixed throttle to control direction and altitude? :Q It's pretty much what the Cox Airlifter had, and it actually flew.
