:wub: I love this what-if plane, found on the Web:

It is featuring the Renault 5 car, and in 1972-75 when I was 8-11 year old I thought "this lovely car will be mine when I grow up!" ;D

brilliant !

and the pedal P51 too !

I really, like that. I would certainly bankrupt myself to buy a 1/72nd scale one of those.

Yes, very smart. It's got a bit of 'rounded off' Convair Kingfish about it me thinks.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Stumbled upon this VG Phantom build, somewhere from Russia:







No comment concerning the unit markings.

Hmm --- wing sweeps back right into the engine. There's enough pictures on the internet to have this built right too, the wing should be at shoulder height, not mid fuselage.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
