Some great stuff there!  :thumbsup:

The 'Soviet Arrow' is a blinder!  ;D

(Yeah, yeah, I KNOW a Blinder is a Tupolev high speed bomber, but you know what I mean.....)

These anigrand models are great for whiffing ideas, but they would need some serious landing gear / exhaust / cockpit upgrade etc etc....
I'm having both on my bench, but not really moving forward with it. Lots of sanding  :rolleyes:
General Melchet was also busy working on the Rapier, but don't know how far he is right now.
But maybe he's reading those lines now and could tell us  ;)

Re Su-12.... Came quite late (aka 1947). What-if they retrofitted it with jet engines?...  :wacko:

Texan Interceptor

Here's one I saw on a R/C modeling forum. The guy got a slightly crashed Texan model from an owner who didn't feel like fixing it. The new owner thought that it would look cooler as a fighter. Wing span is a bit over 2 meters.

I hadn't seen this one before: F-51-R Interceptor, to counter the "Amerika bombers".

actually that F-51 was on Hyperscale &/or ARC last year, so is simply a "share" re-post.

I still believe that here & BtS have different whiffings to offer.  This site certainly has more appreciation for my British side, where-as (due to me going "off" physical modelling) BtS is more "profiles" inspiration for me at present -- but then so are the effects of my meds on my brain :rolleyes:

Give it time & I think the two sites will even out - most guys seem to post on both :thumbsup:

Both of them are REALLY good Ian, well spotted.

I can't imagine why the RAF camo S6B hasn't been done before, it's so damned obvious!
