Hey guys, found this vid while banging around on YouTube.  Some nice Photoshop whiffs of commercial airliners.  I really like the flying wing versions near the end  :thumbsup:

3D illustrations by a toy company (I think) on F-CK-1 with ground attack stores.

Toy but probably based on a real Tiawanese aircraft like the twin-engined F-16 look-alike.
you may as well all give up -- the truth is much stranger than fiction.

I'm not sick ... just a little unwell.

I did say that the illustration IS on real-life F-CK-1.

The various ground attack configurations were tested but rarely, if ever, flown in practice (understandable, considering then came the F-16, which was for a time a better bomb truck than it is a fighter for the ROCAF), hence the what-if status.

Are there any 1/72 scale models of the F-CK-1?

Not sure if anyone has pointed this one out, but it could make for a fun build!

Of course, the JMNs would point out the use of the (post-1959) 50-star US Flag with the pre-1942 insignia, so we'd have to fix that!

That is awesome!  I sat here for a few minutes working out how to do that one.  You'd need a 1/700 Ticonderoga, a pair of 1/700 boomers, and bits from a 1/72 P-38 (or would that be too big?).
