I don't normally share the stuff from the FB page that shares the same name as this message board as I figure most of us see it already and it would be a monumental task to keep up with so I stick to the harder to find stuff we might not see otherwise. That said, this thing is very intriguing to me so had to share it. 

By Cj Leyendecker.



He didn't say anything about it other than, "WIP" but he posted pictures of three kits that I will assume are what he's using to make this contraption. Il-28 Beagle, C-160 Transall, and F-107 Ultra Sabre.

I missed out here... Thank you, Scooter!  I tend to find this thread and leave it just as easily...   :banghead:     It's always this one. For some reason I skip it on my notifications then finally show up later when I find something new to post to see people replied to me and feel like an arse for not replying back.  :unsure:


Here's one I saw recently on the "Ace Combat Community" page.

By ... uhhh....    Stefan Mintchev‎'s wife.    Not the best of credits but it's all I got.  ;D

"What did everyone's wives and gfs get them for valentine's day?

My incredible wife crocheted me SOL1's SU-30SM from scratch!!!"













I'd say that qualifies as a scratch build.

Awesome.  I'm going to have to copy that to my mum.

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

That crochet Mig is superb ! Now that is talent.

And Tophe, I really like the idea of  4-engined Boxcar ! I'm saving that one.

The 4-engined C-119 was a true project of Fairchild (what-if it was actually built?), with a desk model photograph in AViation Week shown bt tonton42/OmerCybokou at

Then for fun, I what-ifed it further into a push-pull 6-engined C-119... ;)
