Is it perhaps a Grigorovich E-2 Kometa? An aircraft of Russian design but “inspired” by the dh88.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

yip artist Karen McAllister created the artwork profiles and box for the Predator and forthcoming Sebel Lynx resin kits. I have passed casting over to a third party so awaiting deliveries (the first pair of production Predators have been set aside for Kit and Jim)  :thumbsup:

I will be revamping SpotOn resins over the coming months, meaning basically setting up a separate entity where I create the masters leaving others to mould, collate and distribute the kits. Hopefully this will mean the models actually being available as well as a wider market presence

cheers, Joe

just a snippet, Karen noticed something I hadn't been aware of previously re the Predator Mockup, the aircraft was covered in 'proper' stencils as well as extensive 'no step' areas on the upper fuselage :)

Having learnt all that from Joe, I decided to buy the print.

It'll confuse the devil out of my friends when it's on my wall.  ;D ;)

It's weird when you find your own work under dubious circumstances! I just stumbled upon this (ab)use of my photo artwork in an ebay auction, as individual box art for a PM Model Sea Fury T.61 (the "Bagdad Fury" kit trainer!?

Especially when the kit in the box won't look anything like yours! Madness.  :banghead:

That's just weird, yup! I wonder the rationale? Are they not that familiar with the subject and figured your glorious whif would be an accurate representation of the kit plastic orrrrrr...... something more nefarious like trying to misrepresent it completely?
