C-13 Wendigo:
Wingspan 33' 11" (from Raven) = 10.34 m
Length 23' 7" (from Valiant) = 7.19 m

Random Thoughts:
    As drawn it's probably got too much vertical control surface.
    I think I'll probably give it a bubble canopy and fuselage a bit like the F-86 Sabre.
    The main undercarriage could retract into the fuselage like a Brewster Buffalo.
    Why aren't there any guns in the nose?
    I assume it's meant to be used on zeppelins so has folding wings.
    Engine could be V12 or V8, must be liquid cooled, it's probably just behind the pilot.
    Maybe the *fins* at wing joints are actually stabilising wheels that fold up (like on Harrier Jump Jet).
    Landing it without smashing the prop is going to be hard!
    As a fighter it will be low/mid wing.
    It has a (much hated) bicycle undercarriage (like B52) with main wheels at each end of the fuselage and stabilisers in the wings.

My first attempt at the Wendigo, I was going to square up the wings to make it more like the mock-up but I think the rounded look makes it seems more 1930s.

I thinking it's specialised for operating from zeppelins at medium to high altitude and the mid engine makes it quick to manoeuvre.
Nice concentrated 4 gun battery, 2 under the nose, one in each wing root.
The stabilising wheels probably need to be moved slightly inboard to allow the outer wing panels to fold.

Hmm, I should add an inlet scoop for the supercharger which is probably in the rear fuselage.

Very cool!

I marvel out how quickly you can produce these and have them ready to print on demand.

What software do you model in?
