Both fascinating.

The Hustler plus Ju 188 glasshouse (which I also like) could be the ultimate development of one of the Junkers jet bomber projects, and the Ju 188 plus Hustler nose could be a Japanese piloted mistel ?

Fabulous builds  :thumbsup:

These blue and red ones are wonderful, perfect for Luft46 (I mean: 2046, in case WW2 would have been longer than expected, 1939-2046, more than the France-England 100 year long war of the Middle Age) ;)

The blue model reminds me of a vertical lift aircraft,  twin engines for vertical lift and four for going forward in flight sort of Yak-38ish.

I see what you mean : it could be an idea of design indeed ;
in this case it is simply the two crew seats behind the pilot on the Hustler.

It has those strange fully enclosed seats, and the silver bits you can see are the upper halves before they close over the crew member.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

Suprisingly the  Matchbox Hunter T7 cockpit fits on the front of the Heller Mirage IVP,  I just need to find the suitable landing gear.


yes they do :

one way :

A 'different' take on the tandem 2 seat Hunter no less!  :thumbsup:

It looks even swoopier than the 'real' one!
