Very beatiful and well drawn design! It´s a reaaaly good looking aircraft, although I feel aesthetics beats funcionality on some features...
_ That nose it's pretty beatiful and clean, but seems to prevent the installation of a radar, already a common feature on those days.
_ That door over the intakes surely will need non standard air bridges/boarding stairs... If it's for evacuation purposes only, a smaller one like the one aft will do the job (although I personally prefer not to jump in front of an engine air intake during an emergency
, so I would move it a little backwards maybe...)
_ That nose landing gear seems unnecessarily complicated, for a little gain in cargo loading area, and also will be unnecessarily stronger than a shorter unit, and weight matters on an aircraft...
_ Talking about cargo loading... Maybe cargo hold it's huge, but you will need doors to access them!!!
_ It's that a fixed/semi retractable wheel ahead of the ventral fin?!? In it´s current position it seems useless, only adding drag.... as long as that is a wheel...
_ I'm not sure of the aerodynamic impact of the rudder trailing edge fillet, but I almost always seen a straight trailing edge, these fillets being part of the vertical fixed fin
_ unlike radars, APUs where not a common feature of 707/DC-8 era airliners
