Thanks for that.

Lots of strange possibilities....
Spitfires of the My Little Pony Squadron.....
Panzer IV driven by Fairies.....
The Butterfly Winged P-47D will be sooner rather than later, in 1/48 too.

"Metter"...it's the version of "Better" as spoken by Martians who live close by. ;)

Meanwhile, whatever happened to the Curtiss P-40H, J and P??
The P-40A and P-40R were US designations for PR versions.
Interesting possibilities.... :o :o :o

According to my copy of Jane's Fighting Aircraft of World War II reprint, they, along with the I and O variants, never existed.  Or were incremental modifications that didn't make it into production.

Not put knife or glue to plastic for some time, which marches on, or scatters like peanuts on a stone floor.
But I am still here, or there, or wherever.
I have consulted the Coconut of Dreams, and spoken with The Laughing Unicorn, and all is well.
The Alternative Universe in which I exist, in which we all exist, albeit an individual's perspective is essential, has taken a psychedelic lurch, and so the Hawker Haze GR.1 will naturally have a purple tinge, while the other stuff remains to be unlocked from the floating substance of my brain.
I have actually bought a kit, a Revell 1/72 MiG-25 photo-thingy....which is exceptionally detailed (with more than 10 parts), and although it was to be originally an "abandoned but graffiti riddled airframe," so many bit call out either for a diesel-punked version, or I'll sell/sway it.
So onwards, my friends.
Let the Coconut of Dreams' prophesies come true, may The Laughing Unicorn be blessed, and the future look wobbly
Onwards into Insanity!!!

Thinking of a Gloster Cream FAW.9 in psychedelic "Disraeli Gears" scheme would look cool :o

And something from English Electric? An E.E. Crimson King F2A???? :wub:

Should you succeed in getting your act together, will you vouchsafe to us how you achieved this exercise.  I've been trying to do this since the early 1950's and have not yet achieved it.

Incidentally, it's good to have you active here again; an incommunicado Radish is not good for whichever version of reality/unreality one chooses to inhabit.
