Cross kitting one with a Gannet AEW3 would be interesting too.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

I am also wondering about changeing the canopy to a fully blown one, and the aircraft in SEA camo..

There's a couple of 1/48th versions of the Skyshark too, and Hannants already have some in:

I just donít get that canopy on the Skyshark. It looks like some kind of armor plated Soviet design.

It was a Douglas thing in the 1950's, F4D-1 Skyray had it, too.





A4 Skyhawk was only marginally different.

While I found both of them very funny I can't picture Kenny and Spike getting along.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Hmm... tough call.

I can picture them either getting along famously or fighting like rats in a sack, depending on them flipping their mental coins the same way or opposite ways when they first met.
