Well, not too much to mention yet, but this time the Western Big Brother will receive support from my work bench.
Anyone remember the nice P-80/F-86 crossbreeds that popped up as profiles first and even received a hardware build (a respective model has been posted on this site, IIRC, but I was not able to dig the post up)?

Well, I'll tackle the same stunt, but with a personal twist.  ;)

Stay tuned for #3, the Cold War enters its next stage.  :tank:

Dizzyfugu:
Things become more concrete: this will be the (probably) last derivative of the F-80 family, in the form of the rather overlooked interceptor version F-94.

So, this will become the F-94E, based on the C with its bigger afterburner engine and modified, swept tail. Armament will also be modernized: no more unguided rockets, rather a pure missile fighter with (externally carried) GAR-1/AIM-4 Falcons. Bigger radar/different nose, too. Probably classic NMF.

Another beauty on the way! :thumbsup:
About the post you couldn't find, just type Sabrestar on the search box, it's Pacopepe's F-80 Sabrestar.  ;)

 :cheers:

Ah, thank you! Could not find it due to the missing keyword, even though it's actually not the one I had in my mind - it was The Big Gimper's builds (Spanish & Norwegian: http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,40969.0/highlight,sabrestar.html)

For anyone interested in former ventures into this kitbashing topic, also check Pacopepe's formidable build: http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,40221.0/highlight,sabrestar.html

 :banghead: I knew i was forgetting some of them...
The Big Gimper's builds are also very cool! :thumbsup:
