The 8th punic war took place in 40s of last century. As the main weapons producing countries were involved in WWII, Carthage Forces was forced to trust in their own resources to produce a high performance fighter to equip their Air Corps.

This aircraft was the Falcata. In their design, carthaginian engineers were inspired in swedish FFVS J-22. So rough materials and quick development lead to an small and robust aircraft with a very study undercarriage adecuate for the rough airstrips in the north of Afrika.

As the basic design of Falcata was strong enough for carrier operations, its Navalization was simple: adding a hook, and raising cockpit some inches. :thumbsup:

This model will not be a contender. It could be also a Styrene Junkyard or Anachronistic GB project but: I AM A MANIAC :wacko:

Those are some really impressive mods, Carlos and they seem to fit that FW 190 to a T!

So, when are you going to build a Cartheginian carrier?

;D
In want of hobby space!  The kitchen table is never stable.  Still managing to get some building done.

The Idea of a "T" tail in A Fw190 fuselage is great, superb, may be the agility would be better. :thumbsup: :cheers: :bow:
