I wonder if anyone even remembers that game

That's really cool. I'd never have thought of making an anhedral and dihedral biplane wing like that. I'm pretty keen to investigate weather that will actually fly and what kind of aerodynamic characteristics it will have. I'll let you know if I can actually make it fly =)

There's a lot of control and lifting surface area there so it would probably have a low stall speed as well as the ability to climb and turn fast. 

There would be a lot of drag though because of the extra leading edge surface added by the second set of wings either limiting the maximum speed or requiring the use of a larger engine increasing weight and reducing payload capacity, this is actually why Biplane and Triplane designs of WWI fighters were phased out in favor of the single wing designs of fighters used in WWII

Awesome, I can't wait! I love doing paper models, but I've never seen any steampunk done in that medium before.

The origional drawing was awesome, but acctually seeing a physical 3D model of it... wow. Great work!

What did you use to design the model?

i used a pencil and paper mainly also the copier function on my scanner, i am looking into 3d modeling at the moment but i need time to learn the tools,its not easy,i can get results quicker using the old methods.
