    The wings will be in the folded position. I know that some might not agree, but naval aircraft do have folding wings! Smile

    Yes JF go for the folded wings as they will look different & a diversion from the boring normal Twisted Evil pirat

    I agree with both Rays. A deviation from the standard norm is sometimes good, it adds to diversity. Carrier aircraft are pictured with folded wings as well, not always extended, and it is also a space saving effort as well. Marco and chris don't worry I have plans for another sea vixen with extended wings Twisted Evil

    p.s. - F-8E and EA-6A/B and possible either the C-2 or E-2 will be with folded wings tongue Twisted Evil Twisted Evil lol! lol!
