Default Delta 7 Jedi Starfighter

https://sketchfab.com/3d-models/star...300fa0a398ffab What do you think about making one of these fly? I was thinking tuck a single turbine between the two dummy what ever they are called and extend the vertical over the canopy. The first step would be to build the delta and get it to fly. Then add the cockpit and all the details. the blunt TE would need four control surfaces to get what you need for control.

Some years ago, a guy from Austria built a interesting model that looks somewhat like that.. the construction method was very innovative too.

The Spunkaroo looks like it was built like a tank, but it flies well. I had to read the thread like a Playboy magazine since I don't read German.

These are the dimensions for the delta. The span would be 7'. The root would be 9' long and 12" thick at the rear. Everything would taper to 0. This would give enough room on the CG for fuel tanks etc.
