MacFarlane Aeronautics M-17 Junkerdoodle
The M-17 Junkerdoodle is the epitome of aircraft construction on the cheap. Cobbled together from previously felled aircraft with more than a pinch of gumption, the Junkerdoodle was able to be mass produced with relatively low cost. Technically speaking, the design of the M-17 is one which emphasizes armament over speed and turning rate. This design philosophy has shown mixed results, with as many M-17s scoring combat hits as there have been going up in flames. This has led many pilots to give it the nickname, "flying tombstone". Regardless of its track record, no one can deny that the Junkerdoodle is a rugged if not resilient beast. Now if only the mechanics could fix that frequent engine stalling problem...

Hello down there!


The underbelly. I used some pretty far-out building techniques here; this old girl is anything but sturdy, let's say that much.


Landing gear folded up


Due to the design of the fuselage, I had to be creative with how I got the cockpit in there. I thought this was a pretty slick solution.

this quite literally made me laugh. For that you get an 8/10 for a pretty clever idea well executed. the color is kinda odd but I think that it looks as if you did it on purpose.

Pretty wild! I think that for the Experimental Aircraft competition, you will be awarded (from me), 6/10 points. A little work on the color, and this would be great!

Man, that engine looks like it came out of a tractor!
