I knew this RD-1410, that would be great with your J7W4...
I have posted my twin-fins Mustangs at http://www.whatifmodelers.com/index.php/topic,4461.510.html

Tilt-rotors excepted, it's funny how the design reminds of some 1970s and 1980s tilt-rotor concepts by Bell... (see attachments) Me likey!  :thumbsup:

This one's taking Sukai Kurora into the jet age! Very promising. Looking good! :thumbsup:

Ive seen several versions of one of the most interesting and advanced aircraft of the WWII; The Kyushu Shinden, so it was difficult to make a new one.
This is the result; in progress at now. Im making it at the same time than the P-48.

The jet's tailpipe looks like a drilled-out screw-on top to a toothpaste tube or something! Clever, if so!
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!

Thanks to all. Craig... once again: "qu malo eres"!  :wacko:  . Excuse me, is just a kidding. The nozzle comes from a Mirage kit.

Stargazer2006; the cockpit comes from a kit of Me 609.
