And here's an Italeri 1/48th Typhoon with lots of mods, the main one being the nose extension which is just the cap off a Felt Tip pen inserted between the front fuselage and radome. The scheme is white all over with Halford's Primer, Yellow "Eastern Front" ID markings, and Blue Unit Leader markings. Decals from an AeroMaster 1/48th Albatros Sheet and kit. The scenario was Ukraine, Eastern Front conflict in 2015. I won the "Antic Trophy" with this at the Avon Show, Yate a few years ago.

I remember the felt-tip-typhoon, but I especially like the Israeli 190 :)

"Fishface at the Ready"

This Mick Coyne/Gerry Vitch "Mick-21D Fishface (WW)" belongs to the Secret Serpent Squadron of the Irish air Corps. Aircraft "6", the "2" is for disinformation, is a fully modified Wicked Wizard weapon, carrying a variety of stores and equipment. Engine power is boosted by the addition of synthetic-Suppalot into the fuel supply. Weapons include air-to-air Shillelagh missiles, an air-to-ground Super Mavis missile, twin 30mm cannon, air-to-ground unguided Leper missiles, Potato Pud air mines, and a quite complete electronics fit that allows the pilot to seek out and jam the radars of potential targets. The "Wicked Wizard" fit on the "Fishface" has been used on Mick-21s of the Scottish Union Air Force (SUAF) too, although the choice of jamming material is different. The Irish Air Corps use constant playing of "The Dubliners" to destroy/block out the enemy radars, but constant upgrading is possible. For extreme occasions, "All Kinds Of Everything" by Dana has been used, but the UN have indicated that this is harmful to the mental health of all within the operating area. SUAF software is, at present, unknown, but may include the singing of Kenneth McKeller and readings by Kenny Dalgliesh of his own poetry.
Kit: 1/48th Academy MiG-21PF(modified)
Decals: MAX and spares
Source: "Wicked Wizards, Dana and me!" by Captain Dink M'Drigh (Irish Air Corps).
circa 1998

Dork, the Cutlass is on page 2 of the section under it's own heading.

Glad you've enjoyed the Daks, Cap'n, I'm thinking of upgrading another one with Turboprops, etc., and lots of gizmos, for RAF service "Anti-Immigration" Control circa 2011.

And not to get political, but anyone who points this out is instantly called a racist :banghead:  And thats including the Scottish Highlands which have the lowest population density in Europe!  The RAF calls it Moon Country :tornado:

Keep 'em coming Terry :)

Not one of mine, but good friend Simon Mepstead did this distinctly odd Korean War F-86F, with the story that the Crew Chief had this aircraft painted PINK overnight as the pilot's wife had given birth to a baby girl.
