I was surprised to find that we don't have a thread purely about Sharkmouths, there's LOADS of mentions and pics of them elsewhere in the Forum, but no thread dedicated to the subject.

Now there is.  ;D

How about this for a 'Happy Shark' starter?

Those panel lines would never pass muster on a model.

Neither would the rivets. :angel:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Amazing to see the dents from bird strikes on some A-10s!

Had a bird strike on the car windscreen just this am - didn't see a carcass on the road behind, so hoping it was just a glancing hit and it went off somewhere to steady it's nerves. :-\

If the RAAF flew them they'd suffer from snake strikes!  ;D

Or rip open their undersides with wombat strikes - nothing survives a wombat strike! ;)
