it's the SMER 1/48, with indeed a 1/72 Twin Mustang pod reversed :
pilots are selected to have small features  ;D


Yeah, the 1/72 Delta kit is nowhere NEAR as good as those are!

I did a Delta kit long ago, but survived it  ;)

Mine is still 'in build', after maybe 30 yrs!  :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

It looks a sight better than my disaster! Those radiators on the floats REALLY don't want to fit, do they?

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries

Type 10, blue : primary seaplanes
« Reply #552 on: December 12, 2017, 01:14:12 pm »

thanks again !

another blue one, a Type 10 triplane (Mitsubishi 1MT) by UPC in 1/50, with floats from a 1/48 MC72










done for The Flying Boat, Seaplane and Amphibian G.B.

I just found out that it did exist after all : not completely a whiff, but still a bit (different floats, and propeller  ;D)

Whif anyway being all blue like that.  ;D

That looks glorious! A contraption I'd love to hop into and go for a joyride. Being one of my favorite colors is just a bonus.  ;D
