Mark Atkins has provided two entries for the ARC annual "Silly Week" and both are rather impressive WHIF models.

Something for the DeHavilland fans.  A few images of a shiny WHIF Mosquito FB (WIP) by ARC member Bear13583.

Now on the face of it, this (http://www.aircraftresourcecenter.com/Gal10/9601-9700/gal9612-R99-Carnavalli/00.shtm) isn't a whiff.  But note the Flanker!  ;D ;D

Now, I don't normally go for stuff with Swastikas on the tail, but damn if that isn't one of the nicest models I've seen this year :wub:

Hmmm, "somewhat" found at ARC. Wasn't actually posted at ARC, but linked to. Seen at the IPMS Open 2010, somewhere in Sweden (I guess).

Saab J 21B.

Not sure of all the different details, but the RW J21 never had a bubble canopy and the tail plane is in the higher location like the jet J21R instead of the lower position like the prop version.

Yeah, this is one where you have to look twice. As Ed said, the canopy is different. The J 21B was a projected version. It was supposed to have a different nose armament (3x 20mm guns), a radar pod and a stronger engine.
