The old air racers, with the sounds of the engines, the fuel in the air, risk...those things make build this plane:


I amuse me.
Huge fan of noisy rodent.
Things learned from this site: don't tease wolverine.
Eddie's personal stalker.

An air racer sponsored by our favorite model manufacturers----positively inspired, Pablo!   :wub:
Styrene in my blood and an impressive void in my cranium.


Very nice - the white leading edges with the black demarcation makes for a very attractive scheme! May I ask what kit you used? I don't recognise the aircraft I'm afraid.
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<


That is excellent! Wow! Makes me grin. Brilliant use of the Model Manufacturing decals too  :cheers:

...and Yes, I do like the old air racers!

Is that a "Travelaire"?
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!


Smart scheme:excellent!  :thumbsup:

My guess? Polikarpov I-152

 Fond of them myself, and this is a delightful interpretaion. I think the 'Mystery ship' had shorter gear, though...


And the winner is ....I-152 but only the fuselage, the wings was taken form a swordfish 1/72, and the wheels was taken from a Nate.
I know his fault and mistakes but Is my weakness.
Thanks for your words and however a photo...


[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]



looks great pablo, just like the real aircraft.

best regards
