No, he's the Nighthunter. :wacko:  I got into a discussion on dA with Colosseum, because I was crediting him on his weapon parts I'd used.  My personal philosophy, and based on my academic background, is "Give credit where credit is due."  If you used someone else's parts, design, whatever, they can't blame you for art theft if you've acknowledged who they are.  I've also had that happen on one of my ST ships, where someone else used the entire design, save nacelles, and only credited the guy who did the nacelles and the creator of the scale.  And it wasn't worth my time calling him out on it.

Came across this Mitsubishi A6M conversion:



Hypothetical Mitsubishi A6M "Zero" variant (called Mitsubishi A6M9 'Zac'), powered by Aichi Atsuta inverted V-12 engine. Imperial Japanese Navy test markings.
1/72 Academy Mitsubishi A6M kit with parts from Tamiya Aichi M6A.

Found here: http://www.deviantart.com/art/Mitsubishi-A6M9-Zac-158919073

Very nice build and good idea!  :thumbsup:

^ That's pretty neat.  :thumbsup: Seamless fit.
Cheers,

Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Nice.  They've done a good job.

Don't you know the He-111Z, Airtruk and so on?
For a connecting tailplane I have no source pixels, it is possible in drawing but not on a bitmap simple transformation.

An good ATL aircraft for Cuba



Quote:
"Yugoslav single-engine fighter aircraft. About 158 aircraft were built, including 113 Hispano-Suzia 12Z-powered aircraft (S-49C) and 45 Kilmov VK-105-powered ones (S-49A). From 1948 with the Tito-Stalin split, they were effectively cut off from any Soviet-made material.

In 1956, the Cuban Air Force purchased twenty S-49Cs for it's air fleet in conjunction with ex-FAA Hawker Sea Furies for combat against Cuban revolutionaries under Fidel Castro. With the change of government following the resignation of Batista on New Year's Day 1959, the S-49s received a change in it's roundel markings. Instead of a white star/red outlining and blue bars (old government,) they painted a red triangle with a white star in the middle and a white bar intersecting the blue ones (communist government). Seeing combat against the CIA-backed Brigade 2506 in April 1961, the S-49 was credited with three victories over Douglas B-26s marked in fake Cuban markings. After 1965, they were retired in favor of the jet-powered Mikoyan-Gurevich MiG-21 "Fishbed."

This example is present in the form of a gate guardian at the San Antonio de los Banos Airfield, about 48km from Havana."

Nice, exotic topic but a great idea for an operator! Weird coincidence that I have an S-49 on my kitbash agenda. Originally intended to build a Yugoslav machine, but Cuba is a cool idea, too.  :thumbsup:
