Nah, here's a whiffing cliche that is so blatant I think it got forgotten in terms of being mentioned.

Step One - conceive any plane in the world, in US Navy Service.

Step Two - Immediately put it in the markings of the Jolly Rogers.

Jolly Rogers - the mother of all cliches.  I've gotten to the point where seeing Rogers on a plane just cheapens the whole effect for me, because they're so damn prolific.  Tigercat is the sole exception to this, for the F-4 he did in Whiffed Rogers markings.  That was cool, on a whole new level.
Putty-fu, Scratch-jutsu and Bash-chi, the sacred martial arts of the What-If. Mastering them, is Ancient Chinese Secret.

Just your friendly neighbourhood Mad Scientist and Ship-whiffer.

Overkill? Nah, it's Insurance.  So are the 20" guns.
