How about that.  I was looking at a kit of that just the other day.

Let's make Victoria great again.

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

...and then I stumbled upon this one. I am still not certain whether I find it cool or just (too) wacky?

I believe you can get decals for this

Man!! That Tupolev.....    so cool. Looks just like a great white!! Now I know what I want on mine.   

I always thought the school of sharks on the engines were cool, too.

...and there seem to be more than one of these Tu-22Ms, since one of the aircraft shown in the pics is "55 Red", and there's a "57 Red", too?

No information on this one!!  I don't have a clue what it is, where, or any of that. I bet someone recognizes it.

Assuming that's real, rather than photo-shopped, then it's very well done  :thumbsup:

Looks like it may be this aircraft, the prototype Embraer E190-E2, with a repaint. The scheme and markings aft of the crew door are pretty much identical.



Even without the shark or tiger mouth the real aircraft carried a terrific colour scheme. And Revell do a 1/144 kit of the 190 too.  :thumbsup:





Pics filched from various places on the net.....
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Regards
Kit

Funky!!  Somehow I missed the big E190 on the side.  ;D ;D  Looks like it is indeed real then, not bad! 

Looks like it has had tigers AND sharks on it so perfect fit in here.  :mellow:  ;D


I have that Revell 190 kit. Got the 195, too, it showed up a few days ago. It's really tempting to open one up and get after it.  ... .      That reminds me, I need to hit the stash thread. I have a whole mess 'o kits to put in there from the last month.  :o
