And I really like these:

Vulcan-Victor wing swap

I've tried that with the 1/72 Airfix Avro Vulcan and the Revell HP Victor.
Whilst the Vulcan wing will fit most large aircraft, there's a lot of work to be done on the Victor fuselage to get it to fit the Vulcan due to the construction layout Airfix has chosen.
I might try this idea in 1/144 scale and see what happens.
A project I've had on the agenda for a long time, but never had the drive to tackle it. But the “Amphibian” GB is a good reason to finally build a model of the semi-fictional upgrade or the He 115 floatplane.
The whole thing is not purely fictional, since the BMW 801-powered He 115 D actually existed – but only as a single prototype. However, I wondered if some more upgrades would have been possible, and this led to this model.

Basis will be the (simple) Matchbox kit, but it will receive some updates, including new engines and a heavier defensive armament. Other weaponry is under consideration.

IMHO, TomZ's Bristol Brabazon in British Caledonian Airlines service deserves the Jury's attention:

Documents recently released show that the Russians fitted nuclear powered Tu-4's. The project was cancelled when reports showed signs of radiation poisoning on the crews medical exams.

Ah, the dreaded Mondayitis! :wacko:
Good job.
I won't need floats.  You'll get enough buoyancy by sealing up those huge spats...

Thanks folks.
We celebrated with a curry.  The local indian restaurant has a very english indian menu (rather than authentic regional dishes) and while being unimaginative it is very well cooked, if mild (they spice for the average Australian palate).
I meant to ask for them to turn it up a notch but forgot (senior moment).
No modelling today as I got called into work early due to suspicious monday illnesses (not that i'm complaining at more hours).
