24 (23/12 2002)

Basically an improvement of the body/wingconfiguration of model 24.

Wings: Instead of a free floating wing-configuration like in model 24, the configuration was based on a basic 90 degree angle rotated 45 degrees.

To this I attached an extra layer of wings with the jumper technique reaching 45+36,86=81,86 degrees.

Since the angle of the 4x8 wings are 23,20 degrees, the back and forward edges sit at 90 degree -8,14/+15,06, or nearly straight across the body.

Inspired by this, I tried to make a corresponding nose, but since there isn't any technique available that can create the necessary 11,6 degree angle at this size (at least with it centered properly), a slightly off-set single stud rotation ended up being the closest fit.

Body: Like with model 24 the two layer wings were wedged in the gap between the corner panel and round bricks.
A little improvement was that the round bricks was moved ca one stud inward creating a much more narrow body.
