That seems like a design that could be a lot more acceptable with a cosmetic makeover. I can't imagine that the airfoil shape of the forward fuselage actually does much for performance. Give it a sexy fuselage nose and sweep the end plates up at the trailing edge to make Rutan-style winglet rudders. Maybe also find some landing gear that doesn't look like it was salvaged from a WWII Luftwaffe experiment. "Simplicate and add lightness" but pay a little attention to the looks and you might have a winner.
