----
    The Sharknoze bike was design as an assault vehicule able to carry an important fire power over a short distance.

    It uses a small turbojet with an imporant weight/power ratio, but with a lreduced life span. The air intake is in front in the "shark mouth"t and the exhaust is a the gravity center, below the pilot. The controls are obtain by the modification of the tail exhaust, the movement of the pilot body (modifying the balanced of the ensemble machine/pilot), and the throttle.
Two huge tanks are fixed on each side of the machine, giving it a maximum autonomie of 20minutes.

Tactical use:
    The machine is bring close to the assault site, fueld and armed awaiting the assault start. Its engine can turn slowly to spare fuel and so remaining ready to fly.
    The Sharknoze can cover many miles at a hight speed or evolute on the field by small succesives jumps, hiding itself on the ground with the engine at its lowest regime.
    Its crew is one single pilot, but in fight it was ofen use to carry a wounded man or two assault troops in place of its heavy armament.
A full robot shark-noze version was also developed, with a non-android robot device in place of the pilot seat.

Up: a drawing for camo sheme.

Left are the resin parts of thr kit upon the instructiion sheet.

The kit is realy quick and and easy to assemble. The skid legs are made of metal wire.

A painting sheme suggestion can be seen above.

You will have two get the weaponery from your spare box, or from a specialized injected plastic box like Tamya "1/35 scale U.S. infantery weapons set".

In this box you will find two M.50 machine gun and they are perfect. you will find the place to fix them on the two ends of the kit cross-bar.

Here is a second flying bike, the KAMPFERD
