Inspired by the brilliant F-16 based Angel Interceptor at Scale Modelworld 2011.  Choose a subject that has been kitted but make an approximation of it out of another kit (or two).  Any takers?

XP-40Q from P-40 and P-51
Tempest II from zero and plastic pipe
??
In my opinion, British, Canadian, or USAF markings make things look so much better...

Inspired by the brilliant F-16 based Angel Interceptor at Scale Modelworld 2011.

Which in turn was inspired by the following  ;D



The Toom S R-2
(I couldnt find the Airfix TSR-2 kit, So I built my own.................)

The photos are from The 2006 Scots Nationals. And yes the model still exists.  :mellow:
I always hope for the best.
Unfortunately,
experience has taught me to expect the worst.

Size (of the stash) matters.
