This my interpretation  of what an operational XAB-1 would look like. It's based on a free paper kit, which itself is based on the classic Hawk model kit from the 50's. I replaced the parasite fighters with a stinger and added some SAC stripes to the nose. I was trying for a "Dr. Stangelove" look with the photos.


I amuse me.

Strewth!  :thumbsup:

That is SOMETHING! How big is the model?
Kit's Rule 1 ) Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
Kit's Rule 2) The backstory can always be changed to suit the model

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



The Leng Plateau is lovely this time of year


Like it very much.  Would hate to loose an outer engine on that one! lots of rudder

Styrene in my blood and an impressive void in my cranium.

Exactly what I was thinking  :thumbsup:
Do not condemn the judgement of another because it differs from your own. You may both be wrong.
