And that looks indisputably Swedish!  Good idea.

Are there any markings that the FD.2 can't wear well?

Very nice! Too sad that the canopy is blind, but the overall look is very good.  :thumbsup:

Why does that say 'Scott Furlong Predator' to me?  ;)

Looks terrific anyway.  :thumbsup:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings

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

Let's make Victoria great again.

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

Indeed. Are we sure that it's not a SAAB model used for presentations to the Swedish Government ?  ;)

Looks good  :thumbsup:

Top job :thumbsup:

The British have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved". Soon though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross". Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940 when tea supplies ran out for three weeks

We should start leaving convincing WHIFs like that in museums, with a small explanatory plaque...

Great job! and yes the Fairey delta has so much whiffery opportunities. Its almost a whif in ..a bag...;-)

Haha PR19_kit. Your right. I really have to finish the Scott Furlong Predator to add to this spree of Delta whifs. The Scott Furlong Predator only needs a paintjob (pink) and (custom made) decals. if i only had some time...

The museum at Coventry has a cabinet which has a fair few of the U.K. S.I.G.'s wif's, Martin calls them our "reserve collection" and although clearly marked as "What If's" they have confused more then a few punters  ;)
