Double Down – scratch built conjoined flying wing

Here is my scratch-built plane, the Double Down. It was inspired by a photo I saw online of two flying wings, one 60% the size of the other, placed nose-to-tail. My eyes misread it as one plane. Later, I decided to make that plane.

Here’s my initial Photoshop sketch. You can see that it’s just two flying wings stuck together.


Here’s the finished plane.
