By Steamgeezer and Son Independent Traders on their own page. They have multiples so I'll dispense with the text and leave a link instead. This group is public so no worries about being able to view it.

No tellin' what other stuff is on the page, I didn't look very far down.  :thumbsup:

Those are both good, but Star Wars is always re-interpreted as RAF vs Luftwaffe. 
If it has to be WW2 (and I suppose it should be given much of Lucas' inspiration was movies about that war) then how about using some different air forces.
X wing in Italian smoke-ring camo for example or a Luftwaffe B wing.

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

I think some U.S. v. Japan ones would be neat.   


This one is both by and found at "Point of view.HG" page. I believe his name is Hakan Guney.       

"Westland LYNX HAS.3"

https://www.facebook.com/pg/povHG/photos/?tab=album&album_id=2337974276450053&__tn__=-UC-R    (I'm assuming it's public, I can see it and I didn't even join or like anything. There are many more pictures here and I suspect more interesting things on the page.) This is direct to the album for this, so if you want to see other things, click on the page name to get to the main feed. I'm going to check it out a bit myself!






EDIT: Well, now... imagine that....  I keep having coincidences about modelling. We were just talking about the Star Wars models.... sure enough, I go check the main feed and there was a Soviet "AT-RT" or some such.... looks pretty cool and has the red star of course.

Spotted this one yesterday. By Angelo Sparthis. Found on the 'Airliner-Civil Aircraft Modeller' page.

"
Hasegawa 744. Wanted to try out this colour on a spare kit I had. SMS metalic ice blue. So built a Qantas fantasy scheme. Came out ok."

That looks VERY smart.  :thumbsup:

Indeed, but I'd utterly hate to see how much that paint would cost and/or weather. :wacko:

The paintwork is stunning, although I personally don't think it suits the kit ? However as the builder himself says, it was a trial and IMHO a successful one  :thumbsup:

it's very hard to scale paint, especially metallic paint.

I see what they did there.... ;D   Never figured a person could be a whif but hey, that's sort of the point of asking the question to begin with, yeah?!


Speaking of people and what-if....it's an excellent segue to this next one. This is a kid build and features kid in question! It's always great to see the youngsters getting into the hobby, and it's like a triple point score when they're already being corrupted by what-if material.  :wacko:

Posted by Dennis Joynt, built with Joyden. Posted on the "Tamiya Model Magazine" page.

"Joyden finished the chinook. Just a different camo he made up. Was a challenge but a slight team effort repairing parts that got poped off, every now and then😂 and seriously old decals sheet."
