I'm all in favour of asymmetric colour schemes, if only to show two different periods of an item's life, but they did it the RW too.

Probably the most famous was G-BOAD, one of BA's Concordes, which was the BA Red Tail scheme on one side and Singapore Airlines scheme on the other. KLM and VIASA did it to one of KLM's 747s as well, and that one was particularly photogenic. I have decal sheets both of those models, and I've already built G-BOAD.  ;D

The scope is almost endless in WhiffWorld.  ;)

My railway coach, Lab 4 'Hastings', will be Southern Region green on one one side and BR Research Blue and Red on the other, when it's finished in about 100 yrs of course.......

I saw a model railroading layout once where there was a car dealership show room. To double the number of cars each was painted one color on the side facing the viewer and a different color on the other side. Then the builder placed a mirror in the back of the room.
Great zwilling! Tophe will be pleased!

On an earlier model railway layout that I was involved in we had 2-3 sets of rolling stock which were painted in different schemes on each side.

As the viewers could only see one side of each train we would run the sets in opposite directions during the operating sequence and could therefore increase the number of possible moves without having to build more sets.  ;D

Very nice, and France is a bit underwhiffed, too, so the Bloch Zwilling is a nice addition  :thumbsup:

The only thing that catches my eye is the (IMHO too) wide landing gear - a typical Zwilling construction issue for aircraft with a gear that retracts outwards. I am alwayws skeptical about the loads and and stiffness of the overall construction in real life.  :o

Wonderful  zwilling model, congratulations! :wub:  :thumbsup:

The 3-engine version (below) had an even wider undercarriage, but this fragile project was cancelled: ;)

Uh, as I am the author of this fantasy picture and I am pacifist they are not 12 guns but 12 perfume sprayers... ;)

Of course, how silly of me.  ;D

The Blochs always looked awkward to me, but somehow this Zwilling Bloch makes up for that. Well done!
Whatever.

I know what you mean. I think it's the slightly canted nose that does it ?
