Looking at sports themed projects now I that I have Chicago Cubs and Bears nail decals. The nail decals are small so they would look better on a small aircraft like a Skyhawk or an F-5.
Just received a Mistercraft SU-22M4 that will receive Polish markings. I also lately received a Tornado F3 that will be finished in Canadian markings in place of RW Hornets. That should carry me out for about two years.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

The Maclaren Maverick was supposed to be a rival SSC contender but it didn't get past the mockup stage.  The engine was straight out of a Tornado keeping the afterburner in place and the body looks like a A-4 Skyhawk 'Scooter ' without the vertical tail fin and the wings.  All the wheels are covered in spats, a rummage in the spares box should supply the necessary parts.

As part  of my current  interest in  50's to 70's RAF  aircraft,  one  for the 50's  will be a Horten flying wing.  I have  the very basic  PM version  and  it will need a lot  of help to make  it something like.  Better  more modern looking landing  gears, a fuselage mounted  radar  pod, and  a pair of fireflash missiles. Not sure  whose  company wil be building and  developing said aircraft  yet, but  in my wiffverse, the British  got  to the Horten factory  before  the Americans,  and  took the prototype and the plans.

With the Citroen Centenary happening this year I thought of building three cars in 1/24 scale; the concept,  the prototype and the production car or van.

Getting rid of that DIABOLICAL nose wheel sounds like a good first step.  :thumbsup:

And Fireflashes RULE OK!
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Cheers  Robert,
If I can't  do anything with this one  I  will have a look for one,  this kit is very  basic,  mu like  their  mirage III that they  did, lt at least  gives me a  good base for  a cheap wiffed model of nothing else.  The more I look  at fireflash missiles,  the more  I  like  them. Typical  British  make them too complex  for their  own good,  and  make  people wonder  what the  hell is going on with them.  ;D

That  name  has rattled around,  as I  was wondering  if the engines from the meteor  would  fit in the Horten. I  haven't  looked at the  dynamics,  but it is wiffworld after all.

The Saro SRA.1* was powered by a pair of them.

*jet powered fighter flying boat, Beryl, a British axial flow jet engine not related to anything German and built during the war. The second Meteor prototype to fly was powered by the earlier Metro-Vick version.
