They're all nice, but the Starfire in RAF markings is really a star. Still trying to work out exactly why: maybe it looks too old-fashioned for it's real-world silver livery and it sits better with the Meteor/Vampire generation in cammo? Anyway, well done! :thumbsup:

Because one is not used to a camouflaged F-94 at all! That iself is pretty weird. I imagine one in SEA colors, too...  :rolleyes:

The Curtiss F123-A1 looks great, too. Recently came across a Ju 87 in coclorful USN markings, and it did not look bad either (even though its inline engine would make it rather unprobable).

These are great.  I particularly like the biplanes.

Love the two bipes and the camo'ed Starfire.  :wub:

JASDF? ROKAF? ROCAF? Would all look lovely!  :thumbsup:

Swap the types, Brad, & you have the actual aircraft, Bungle's just swapping schemes & markings between aircraft. ;)

You can fool some of the people some of the time and hopefully my wife ALL of the time.  ;D

BTW there's a lot of filler in the Yak (real yak) !

I never could tell the difference between them anyway, so those two look totally RW to me.  ;D

But both splendid nonetheless.  :thumbsup:

A YS-11 and an Andover next maybe?  ;)
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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