Excellent stuff there!  :thumbsup:

That's one of the 'classic' BOAC/BA747 schemes, the other being the 'Landor' scheme.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

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

Regards

That BOAC 747 scheme does look class  :thumbsup:

Given they are celebrating 100 years I'll have to keep my eyes open to see if the museum in the old Croydon Airport control tower is putting on any special events.
Decals my @r$e!

Nice article here: http://pinktentacle.com/2010/06/future-transportation-1936/

It reprints a Japanese magazine article from 1936 about future transportation possibilities:





Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

Why am I thinking that this would look even more 'right' if it was based on a Sikorsky S-55 or S-58?  :wacko:

Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.

Because the S-55/H-19, in particular, already looks a lot like a flying food van. ;)

Any idea or indication which kit this is? It's a VF-1D two seater, and AFAIK this should be the 1:72 Hasegawa kit (since there's no bigger D kit around). That's impressive.

Not really a whif, but...  :rolleyes:
It's actually a DIY kit!
Lovely P-51, completing the Mustang family! Thanks!

Nope.  It could also be the Bandai 1/72 VF-1D variable kit.  I've got one of those lurking in my stash.

 :wub: I love this what-if plane, found on the Web:

It is featuring the Renault 5 car, and in 1972-75 when I was 8-11 year old I thought "this lovely car will be mine when I grow up!" ;D
