I also have thought about an early Mustang (a B/C), powered by an Allison V-1710 with a chin radiator - not one of those depicted, but esp. the right profile with the P-40 fuselage looks really good.  :thumbsup:

Mustang Mk.X did have a chin radiator, for the air intake/intercooler though



If I'm not building models, I'm out riding my dirtbike

If you were to make a guesstimate: How much extra room would the turbo take up lengthwise?
That being said, I'd like to remind everybody in a manner reminiscent of the SNL bit on Julian Assange, that no matter how I die: It was murder (even if there was a suicide note or a video of me peacefully dying in my sleep); should I be framed for a criminal offense or disappear, you know to blame.
