Hi everyone!
Attached, a little work about an unbuilt italian all-wing of the '30s.
Comments welcome.
Cheers,
Marco

That picture looks digitally rendered...any old drawings or pictures of this aircraft?

Hello, HeavyG.
This is a complete render, draw from a blueprint using SketchUp 8 free edition (with some plugins) and rendered with SU Podium (and awaiting a post production when I'll able to do something acceptable using GIMP).
This plane was actually a "paper plane". I'll post the blueprint asap -don't know if there are other drawings or picture of a wooden model.
Regards,
Marco

I was for this one. I saw it on Facebook. As a flying-wing fan I found it fascinanting. Great work Marco.  I wait for the blueprint  :)

I have some other projects blueprint of Ing. Piana Canova impressive all-wings plane.
I've also rendered another plane of him. Not strictly a flying wing, but an uncommon layout as well.
