When I see things like this it makes me wonder if the models of strange, mythical creatures that archaeologists find in ancient peoples temples etc aren't in actuality creations of the Athens What If SIG circa 400 BC rather than religious artefacts ?  :rolleyes:

Aided perhaps by the mind-altering substances exuded in volcanic fumes through cracks in the floor of the Oracle's cave at Delphi.

A man walks into the Oracle's cave with a bull.
"Take that bull out!" fumes (sic) the High (sic) Priestess.
"It's mine, O tall one" the man begins but is cut off part way through, getting only as far as "It's mine, O ta...".
When she recovers herself, her acolytes tell her what they heard and the damage is done.

After all, when it comes to those fumes, it only takes a whiff... <ducks for cover and runs out the door>  :wacko:

Hat...…coat etc.  ;D
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! :)

Do217 mistel & Gaz shuttle, blue & red : hybrid aircraft/animals e.a.
« Reply #2451 on: November 16, 2019, 11:48:49 am »


and now for something completely different :

sometimes I buy a kit or a miniature car just because it seems cheap,
and then I have to make sensible (in some sense) use of it,
while trying to empty (or lower) the stash ...

Haha! Reminds me of the Top Gear attempt at turning a Reliant Robin into a Space Shuttle. They stuck with vertical launch though.

Probably why I never realised they were trying to trump Evel Knievel's death-defying flight of twenty years earlier! ;)

Awesome, but shouldn't the support structure be yellow?   ;D ;)

Very nice model! :thumbsup:
And I understand now the true (secret) reason why the Do-217 had lateral fins instead of one central fin. ;D
[the word "realistic" hurts my heart...]
