Most of models proposed appear to be from the western side of the iron courtain.
We need some opposants too...

I wouldn't worry too much.  I plan to build nothing else.

Interesting camo on this Vietnamese Fitter.



Unfortunately (for me anyway) the website is in Vietnamese.

But this is just the harmless livery of the VPAF Su-22s (primarily the two seaters). Check this:



Sexy, eh?  :wub: And bad for the eyes, too.  ;D

Looks like they used the Cockpit Interior Green for the entire exterior!

Nice and subtle, as people are browsing the site they'll think it's Czech, then, 'hang on a minute....' :thumbsup:
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Neither of which are exactly the prettiest aircraft on the planet to my mind, but they're an 'interesting' shape nonetheless.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

I don't have anything without wings ! Not even the egg beater flying things.

I'm looking at beefing up an AModel Yak-210 or hitting their IL-40 with an ugly stick. Both in the stash, both whispering to me .... (I hear voices)

Still looking for a suitable armoured car or APC...just spotted Hobbyboss' EBR-10; quirky enough for a major overhaul ;D

How can you make an Il-40 more ugly?  :unsure:

Does anyone produce swiss victory signs? I mean, the small "flags" fighter pilots paint under the cockpit for downed enemy aircraft.
I have the dirtiest plan ever.... ;D

Here's an inspiration . For example maybe instead it was Leopard Meet or Killer Whale Meet
