Thank you very much Skyraider. Your drawings are so nice! I love the Manta Fighter! Does it exist a kit of this US project?

I still need to properly finish or redo the Manta, as it's one of my earlier models and not very good. It's a very interesting design and has had a lot of attention.
No kit is available, but if I remember correctly Terry Harner in the USA has developed a combat RC model kit out of it, after winning several championships with his original built inspired by my 3D image. Other people who've built the Manta since for RC flying all agree that it flies exceptionally well, most likely due to the wing design.

WOW!

I've just discovered this thread and this is a marvelous model! The subject is original, the work detailed and perfectly executed... Congratulations! I think I'll be suggesting this for the Whif contest...  Are you on the What If Modelers forum as well?

I saw some of this on What If, but I didn't see the assembly.  Those seats, that instrument panel, and all that detail, and you did it in 1/72.  I do not have words to adequately express my wonder.  WOW!
