Great line up. Looks like my RAF/FAA 1946 line up has it's work cut out ?

Decals my @r$e!

Wonderful collection...
I knew the great He 162Z :wub:  but there is so much more around.
Of course, my eye has been trapped by the Flitzer twin-boomer, and it seems there is a Go 244, almost hidden above it, and on top of this vertical, what is the sharp total-vision single-seater there? It could be nice from a side-view... Please, show us more, Master Tuck...
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]

That single seater is the Heinkel 112 by Heller (1/72)

Yes, that's a Go 244 below.  Thanks for the comments.

I am puzzled... I have found on the Web this very same He 162Z, with starboard engine doors open and V V tail under the name Salt6, and Salt6 was one of us here, is this you, Tuck ? I thought not, as Brroks and Tucker names do not match, so... I am puzzled.

Thanks for the He112 explication.
About the Salt6/Brooks mystery, there is something else that interests me : his P-38Z and P-38 drone, heretical crimes that would be forbidden if I were president! (joke) :)

Now that is indeed funny. :D   That is my A/C, as is the Bv 212 nightfighter above.  That was taken at Squadron Scalefest '97 in Plano, Texas.  Man, hard to believe I made that 162 that long ago. :rolleyes:   That contest was the first time I brought it out in public.  Thanks for the site!  Never had seen that one before.  I think the Salt6 is just the fella who took the photo.  Does not look to me like he was tryign to claim he did it.

Thanks for the explanation, Tuck. Then, who is the author of these double-Lightning and half-Lightning?
