Hmmmm........
Move the engines from the wing to the fuselage, put a big honk’n gun in the nose, pile all the ordnance you can think of under the wings. German A-10.

I mocked-up something similar several years back using the Eduard 1/48th He-280, the kit is engineered
with 'clean' wings in order to accommodate kitting the different versions.




I never did get around to building it and sold the kit on.

I like the Hawkeye/Falcon mash-up, I've seen it before and am still tempted to build it, if/when I get suitable components. :thumbsup:

Did the cat survive?
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! :)

In his own words:

"Here comes my second entry to #RussiaChinaGB It's a what-if variant of the 1/72 Plastic Soldier SU-76 kit, a experimental Finnish KSP-76 X tank hunter from the post war era. To tell the truth I lost the track parts so I had to go with wheels of a ZIL truck and side skirts."

It does look like something you'd build Dizz.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.
