This is the Tiger from Band of Brothers....but it doesn't really look like a Tiger! Maybe it's because my body isn't high enough....just can't work it out?

Back in the 1970's I bought a COMET flying model of a Curtiss JN-4 'Jenny'. I never make them as flying models, I like to detail them. The model is 1/20 sc and the pilot is a resin model of the pilot of a SeaQuest 'Stinger'
Long way to go.....but it should be fun.

Tank looks good! BoB is a favorite of mine.... it's a classic "go-to" .....   if all else fails finding something to watch, it never hurts to start BoB.

Maybe you could turn it into a monoplane (without struts), that would be easier... ;)

The camera ship is moving to the rear of the Valiant in every shot......
Forgot to mention, the only kit parts are the undercarriage. The tailwheel, I can't remember...but the mains are from a P-51B

The M-41 version of the Stug 111 G from Band of Brothers......finished!
I've finished all the German Armour from this fab series, and am now working on the M-7 from ATTACK.

Forgive me but, this is not really a What If Model........
Maybe I can help... turning it into a what-if zwilling, yes? (I don't use Photoshop but Corel Photopaint, similar)
You have not answered Glenn, but I try anyway: here is the Twin-Valiant version, fully what-if... ;)

Hey Tophe.....try it as a floatplane.
I think, on a 4-seat trainer, there are 3 pupils and 1 teacher.
For making it a floatplane, it is far less easy: I just "worked" with Copy & Paste from a single picture, and no float is included from your source. I know our friend Stargazer used to make such great mixes from different photographs found on the Web, but there are at least 3 problems: the angle of view must be the same, the blurring/precision level must be the same, the copyright laws are frightening... Sorry I think this floatplane will not be made by myself, but congratulations again to your model!

Wish I`d seen this thread earlier as I spent 9 months working on the set of Band of Brothers, got quite a few photo`s knocking about especially the german vehicles that were all built on T-34 chassis IIRC.

After the awards show tonight I`ll see if I can dig them out for you, but so far they all look right from memory.
