Looks like a pretty poor cardboard replica of an Me-109, but they must have used some WIERD pics as reference.

Prolly based it on this.

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

Looks like a scratchbuilt 1:1 version of a Buchon-Me 109 from  the "Battle of Britain" movie???

Does a MiG-21MF on a corner store/lunchbar count for this? In Auckland, New Zealand (you need to click through the photos): http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/5603707/Businessman-is-just-plane-crazy
I find it very hard to believe Academy would make a mistake like that he said sarcastically...

It's a good lookin' airplane, too!   :lol:  I wonder how much extra revenue his "investment" will bring in.. .. .    Sure beats billboards.

For those who are wondering, no I've never seen it in person but I am planning a model of it (on the ground)!

One day I may visit but, as it's up on the roof, it's a long trip and a exercise in navigating our biggest (and worst-laid-out) city for not much payoff...but I do think it's funny the foodbar appears to have a Vietnamese name!

Paul Jellick, the original owner, also imported a two-seater which is at a museum (and accessible without ladders) at Wanaka in the South Island. Our roof-based friend is an ex-Polish machine and can be seen in a Squadron book on the Fishbed:

I bet they had the putty delivered by a 6000 gallon tanker. And can you IMAGINE the size of the sanding block they used???  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
