Thanks for that Thorvic.
I was not sure but I reckoned that Joe was a suitable person to point the finger at.  :rolleyes:

A Rotodyne with ramjets perhaps?  ;) ;D

I hope that you're kidding :D

I do not think that the Rotodyne would be able to achieve a high enough airspeed to ignite the ramjets.
A slimmed down Rotocrane might be more viabl.  :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:  :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

The Lockheed XH-51A, with the auxiliary turbojet might also be a candidate for some inspiration, although there is no model available that I am aware of.

More goodies from the Book of Faces.

All that is known about this one (according to the facebook post) is that it came from behance which seems to look sort of like Pinterest. Could prove to be an enjoyable challenge for those of inclined to do the research and enjoy such endeavors.









woah!

Suprised that I voted for some of the leading contenders! What, I have good taste and judgment?
Some have not realised the genius of a number of models that I voted for....

Its a Proposed Chieftain fire fighting Tank as the armour would protect operators from intense heat. Its in the Haynes Manual on the Chieftain.
The Armour was built by Luciano they guy who did the paintings.

As a less complicated alternative: why not start with an A-109? That's one of the sleekest and fastest (relative to engine power) helos around.

Because there is no bigger A109 than 109, but I'd love to :)

i built an Airwolf Mk.3 a few years ago, i used the revell/matchbox SA365 Dauphin as a basis, installing similar modifications to the original Bell 222 Airwolf.

That was my idea...Trumpeter makes one in 1/32

The Airfix 1/48  or Rebellion 1/32 Lynx might work.

An Agusta A109 would  give you a similar look, but I don't know of one bigger than 1/72.

There is an Revell Lynx in 1/32 but I don't know if it fits into role of Airwolf.

I could imagine ESCI's fake Ka-34 "Hokum" to be an apporpriate design? Painted in black and white...?

Ka-34 is 1/72...but it fits very well indeed:)

By Angelo Spatharis.  Found on the Airliner-Civil Aircraft Modeller page.


"Finally finished. Revell A350. 1:144. Made by request of the new owner, in the "what if" livery of the now defunct airline, Air Scotland. Came together fairly easily and a fun build. It's heading off to Spain next month."
