I can't read a lick of it, but there's a bunch of images of what-if planes, ships and even some armor under the various links on this page.

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

WON-DER-FUL !!!  :wub:  :wub:  :wub:
Several twin-boomers that I had never seen, an He-162 seaplane and so many other marvels...
I will contact my Japanese friend to understand more, even if he cannot translate all for everyone... BabelFish from Japanese to English gives an Error :(
Saving the pictures on our machine provides a first name for each drawing, but I hope to undestand more.
Thanks a lot, dear JoeP, I should come back here more often...

Yes, I have seen this one, completing your own creations, Ollie... Alas, too late for my book Virtual Mustangs. Too bad.
(Last week I have also found 2 drawings missing in my collection, silhouettes before the NA-73-X : I had 2 of them, but not these 2 additionnal ones, different. Too bad also).

QuoteSeveral twin-boomers that I had never seen
7 named C4K, nanpu, harpy, Ki69, hokai, enrai, godenk - I will see on the Net if I find something about them elsewhere...

QuoteKi69 - I will see on the Net if I find something
The "real" Ki-69 was a long range Ki 67 from Nakajima or Misubishi, twin-engined but not twin-fuselage, so sad... The other names provide nothing, it seems they are completely fiction dreams. It would be nice to invite these Japanese dreamers among us, according to me. :)

I liked the look of this little baby, the Kawanishi D5K Dive-Bomber Keisei
Now somewhere in my stash is Whirlwind, fit a pair of new engines, alter the tail and fit a Me110 canopy  :P

Now that one looks like you could come real close combining the canopy and cockpit of a Me110 with the first version XF5F-1 "Skyrocket".

Incredible, a last examination provided more and more twin-boomers (D4M1, D4M2, XP-76, XB-20). This site is a gold mine... Thanks again and again.
