Sometimes they can be just too subtle and arty...........  :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

From the Wings of Russia page, so maybe that's a clue. Otherwise, "Seabear" is all I know about this one.

Hurricanes with a shark mouth are rather uncommon, I think?

It certainly has a nose that suits a shark's mouth with or without the tropical filter.

The one that took me completely by surprise was the Defiant nightfighter that Airfix did in their recent tooling. I would never have guessed a Defiant with a sharks' mouth.

For those that havr been into toothy grins that Defiant has been known for years.
I am however very, VERY, interested in any more info about that Hurricane. PLEASE, if anyone out there knows any more info let us all know.

Thanks!! So "seabear" must be an unofficial name or something? I would have had problems looking this one up for sure!

Yes I think the full designation is L-42 Seabear, what I find an interesting feature of it is the twin fins are that way to make walkway between them for boarding on water. :mellow:
