Real world Wif crossover
« on: October 02, 2009, 07:38:01 am »
Sometimes  a Wif doesnt have to be hard....does it.

I was cleaning up some old models and came across this old Otaki build.

Thinks how about a Cobra(P39) prop and cannon fit.............................how about using a 30mm German cannon...................that should spoil a couple of B-29s day.

Now what do you guys think of a repaint ,fitting JU 88 exhaust shrouds and some radar arials( ala Wild Sau)......a Night Demon Slayer?? allied reporting name Arnold........or as the Japanese may have named it "Violet pagoda outhouse"





Maybe Ill just get me coat and keep taking the pills. :banghead: :blink: :blink: :blink:

I bet the casual observer would not catch on that the protrusion on the propeller spinner is actually a cannon barrel and pass it off as the external starting lug for the vehicle mounted starting unit that was used on some of the earlier Japanese aircraft.

Don't forget the Schrage-Muzik!

Hopefully you'll have better luck with "simple" whiffs than I do, Dork.
