Can you guess what it is?

I'm writting a review this week for Modeling Madness.



It puts me in mind of the Me-410, but the nose and wings aren't right.
"Life isn't divided into genres. It's a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky."-Alan Moore


It's a Fw-187, and a very nicely done one.

Hey Ollie,
Did you (or somebody?)  handpaint the logo on the nose?????

Is that the same logo as appears on your beloved CFWOL (and the "Squadron" mail order logo)?

More pics, eh?

Styrene in my blood and an impressive void in my cranium.


Beautiful plane there Ollie, but doesn't that big black eagel constitute nose art??

Thanks guys!!

Barry, the nose marking is a decal.  I'm not that good!  Toad is good though, he painted the "Lark One" art on the tail of a F-4!!  And it's the same logo!

Lancer, it's not nose art, it's the squadron's marking, just like ZG 1 had a large shark mouth and other units had other stuff.  VF-27 had a cat's mouth on their Hellcats.

And I'm not against nose art on a model, especially if I'm representing a famed aircraft.

But I'll never put one on any aircraft that I might own.

Is that the resin jobbie you were fighting a while back?

Eh Ol', nice Wulf mate!


Yeap, that's the one Nev!

Thanks Swamphen.
