Must, then, my projects bend to the iron yoke of a mechanical system? Is my soaring spirit to be chained down to the snail's pace of matter?

Spanish Republican rocket-powered, T-tailed sesquiplane with spats - fighting pterodactyls!  :wacko: :bow: :party:



Also found this contraption which looks like something right out of Ma.K ZbV 3000!
Looks very whiffable - take a Me 109, a Me 262, a couple of figures, some Evergreen tubing, add a couple of bits'n'bobs and you're golden!



Both found HERE
Cheers,
Moritz

Perhaps the Republicans escaped defeat by time-travelling to a different dimension or version of Earth, where the eternal battle continues..... :thumbsup:

Reminds me of these things we used to build from the spares box when I was a kid:



Neophyte: Is Eris true?
Malaclypse the Younger: Everything is true.
Neo: Even false things?
MtY: Even false things are true.
Neo: How can that be?
MtY: I don't know man, I didn't do it.

The spanish Repub rocket plane looks like its based on a hurricane (canopy framing, tailfin) could easily apply to anything though! Great finds!

 I think its closer to some of the Nieuport products from the mid-thirties, but its a beauty whatever the source.

Found Mike Doscher's deviantart account >>HERE<<. He calls it a "Nieuport Rocket Fighter". It's from the RPG "Rocketship Empires: 1936". There's more:

Rocket-powered Rata (although the Nationalist war zeppelin mayb e even cooler! :wacko:):



Space Stuka:

The first pic is the weekly header , called the Black Hornet by its creator

A brief tour of previous posts  also yields some interesting ideas .

That looks like the result of a night of drunken debauchery between a Jigabachi and a Tachikoma.  I like it.

I like the descriptions of the "carriage variants" - "military", "civilian" and "WTF?"  ;D
