Uh? I was not understanding, as coming from a mail-link (notification), and the explanation seems in the present title of this topic: Viking (S-3, this is where the jets are coming from). But as you change the topic titles quite often, the explanation will disappear soon, too bad...
Sorry for saying this about the puzzle :-\ , but concerning the model:  :wub: :wub: What a marvel! Wonderful! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

Thanks !

the Viking in question is the S-3 indeed , but coming from me, you could have imagined
a middle-ages viking with a helmet with horns maybe  ;D

Well done, unexpected, beautiful, looks like it could be real.  But I could say that about all of your creations!

Yak-53, red : primary seaplanes

the Yak-53 has a sympathic look, it deserved a floatplane version

(in 1/48, floats from a 1/72 Twin Otter)

thanks !

yes it is the Amodel (which I got cheap, on sales) :
theirs kits are always a bit grunge, but it is possible
to get along with them, to my standards  ;)
And they have a very original range, so globally I quite like them.

Thanks, grunge indeed!  Yes, I think Amodel is quite alright in my book because of just how many cool things they have kits of. Like this one for instance. lol

That looks very neat  :thumbsup:

It's got a Japanese WWII look about it, would need a different engine but could pass.

It looks very Ki-115 Tsurugi like.

And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."
