Totally and utterly INSANE!

But it's wonderfully insane as well, and fits so well with 'our' kind of thinking. I'm glad you made it by the deadline Fred, maybe 2-3 hrs or so.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Complete lunacy, and I love it  :thumbsup:  But you need bigger pictures.  There's so much detail packed in there and I want to see MORE!!

wonderful, it looks like it came flying out of a dieselpunk conic all, sooty contrails and attitude.
Redone 19/08/15  the things you learn, give your mind the wings to fly, and the chains to hold yourself steady added 07/10/18   take off and nuke the site form orbit, nope, time for the real thing, CAM and gridfire, call special circumstances.

Wonderfully delirious, Zenrat.
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

...Coincidentally, I picked up a Cant Z.501 at Huddersfield with piracy in mind. It's pretty much the same shape but half the size and with 20% of the engines, but it has bomb racks in the middle of the wing struts which would be perfect for this kind of small boats setup.

Yes.  Italeri.  I've been after one of them at a sensible price.

Ahhhhhh yes... back for another stroll and a closer look... this is the most amazing contraption!!!  Ropes and lil people and ... just.. wow, dude!  The kid in me wants it real bad to play with, finicky me says you should build an enclosed case for it to protect it and keep it dust free, the greedy me says I bet you could make a killing if you were to put it for auction.  ;D ;D    :thumbsup:

Yes!  Thank you good sir!  It's amazing.  I love all the ropes, walkways, ladders and crew figures.  It's truly stupendous!

Thanks guys.
It's now safely flat against the back wall (hooks under the wings) of my biggest display case.  I did manage to catch the barrel of the Oerlikon with my hand and snap it off while setting up the hooks.  I think the spiders took it as I couldn't find it and had to make another.  That's actually the third barrel its had.  The original didn't survive being posted to me.
I also knocked the front Vickers off but I found that and reattached it.

Reminds me of the aircraft seen in Porco Rosso. :mellow:
Excellent work, Fred, looks very good indeed, love that camo. :cheers:
