Default Scaled Composites Son of Ares

Wish Ivan was still around to model this thing. Looks like a refined version of the old "Tacit Blue" curb stop of an aircraft that Munninghoff carved up years back.

it seems the project team has a sense of humor to, old pick but timely for fathers day!

Looks more like a manned version of the General Atomics Predator C "Avenger"

There are a good many Scaled Composites aircraft i would love to do, unfortunately good information on them is hard to come by.
