It'd get, what?, half a metre down the runway before it ran out of fuel ... & that's if it did a brakes-free engine start-up at the end of the runway. ;)

I have an Italeri F-16 that would be perfect for this. Itís not much use for anything else.

I love "stumpy" - I could look to do that one (even though it is not Luftwaffe) - it looks so much fun

But then, because it's so short, as soon as the engine power cut off the nose strut would rebound, the wings would catch just enough air to keep the motion going before it slowed down, and it would slide gracefully to the end of the runway standing on it's tailpipe.... :wacko:

...even though I have doubts concerning the choice of colors. :o Instead of the USAF SEA tones, used on fighters and fighter bombers, I'd rather assume that SAC tones for high altitudes would have been used? E.g. like this pattern here for the B-58:

Indeed, or something similar to the B-1A camouflage.  Was that a Rockwell or SAC pattern?  I've never worked that out.

That begs the question of why they used it on B-52's?
