I sorta already did back in the day....I had trouble getting enough control authority with the exposed full flying elevons outboard of the wedge having enough pitch control, given the wedge shape trailing edge elevons only wouldn't have worked, I would have had to do double trailing edge flaps some on the top of the rear that went up only for pitch up and some that went down only from the bottom for pitch down like they did on real lifting bodies, if I had done a simple flat plate I could have used elevons and it would have been better...

Very cool . . . at a glance, it resembles an Imperial Star Destroyer, from Star Wars !
