    Nice to see one on here, I've seen one multiple times at the Air & Space Museum near where I live... surprising how big they actually are in person. Sits right next to an F4 Phantom and a MiG-19. :)

    Nice plane! I wanna say a few things wierd about the plane, no offense, the wings are a bit too short...Extremely underpowered,wheels are quite small, and that’s all. I also am not a fan of no control surfaces, and only the rudder control surface moves, this is you style, your build, u don’t have to change anything just a little things I think are iffy, anyways look cool and love the color scheme!
