I swear there's a thread on this somewhere
The F-106- 26 December 1956 to 8 August 1988

Here's an information-less thing I saw on the 'book not too long ago. Looks like some reasonably well done photo-manip of something or other with elements of other something or others. Pretty neat looking if you ax me!



This pic has been around for a while now. Its some pretty good photoshop work. Take the SU-22 and add a Phantom nose and some Skyhawk style intakes. I might just build it one of these days.
There's someone in my head, but it's not me!

Here's the original, Polish Su-22


What's that wee doodad sticking up atop the aft cockpit?  I've never seen that before.

Perhaps a periscope so the GiB can see what's going on in front?
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Yes, it's a retractable periscope. You can see its counterpart hanging down at 45° in the canopy.

I've been sitting on this for months.... since April. It wasn't too long ago I mentioned in my blog wanting to some day build a monochrome B&W build. Lo, it wasn't long before this popped up on my feed.


Found on the "Facebook Scale Modellers Page."   Here's a link for any possible members: https://www.facebook.com/groups/crumblebuilders/permalink/1000943226775481/

Next up, some of you may have seen this meme:




By Shea Walker found on the Starfleet Engineering and Technology" page.

"Ok ladies an gents. Heres a lil funny/ joke ship. Ive made some before. So, that image that keeps going around of a toilet stopper thats a starship...I kept seeing that meme so much...I decided to make it into a starship. After "google lensing" the image, I discovered this image is of a Korky toilet flapper 54BP....thus...BEHOLD.....the U.S.S. Flapper. NCC-4U2P, Korky- Class Federation vessel. This baby has 2x 270 degree arc phasers, a matter/anti-matter Drano drive, and the best janitorial service in the quadrant!!"
