Check out this article on Dan Swiersz's magnificent
scratchbuilt 1/48th scale Douglas Model 1186-C Long Range Special Attack
Aircraft at RetroMechanix.com:
For those not familiar with the design, this was a study for
a composite long range supersonic attack aircraft designed to operate from the
original USS United States super carrier; more details can be found in this
book. The article, which originally appeared at the
Aircraft Resource Center, has been reworked with additional photos and
commentary; it now features 29 photos of the construction process and finished
model, which is approximately 26 inches long. Amazing and inspirational work!
I saw that article on ARC, like the build very much! I will have a look at the reworked article.
Iy looks like something out of Batman especially with the trailing edge of the sponson that the piggyback ship is attached to. Very cool!!
