There's a number of RCAF aircraft on posts like this, but the way it was attached inside the fuselages weren't very good. That's because the wind load on the wings was twisting the posts and the action was destroying the fuselages from the inside. I redesigned where the internal connection went which was a massive lug that the wing got bolted to.

I was going to stop at Hinsdale on my way back and see that beautifully painted F-4, but now they've asked us to depart at 4amso it will be dark out.

I visited the A-7 when we were in town.  It's striking.  The A-7 guys aren't thrilled with the markings, but it is sharp, and well cared for.

That's an F-94C, but without ANY wing tanks, isn't it? A most unusual configuration.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

That's what I want for the front yard - a Thud.
Mrs z has expressed concerns that it might be too large.

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

I will choose a path that's clear, I will choose free will.

The late Mrs_PR19 once decided that she'd like a Wessex in our front garden when she heard that the RAF were selling them off at bargain prices. Just for the hell of it I checked and found we COULD have actually afforded one, and it would have fitted in the front garden too (just....) but actually getting it to our house from St. Athan would have cost a FORTUNE!  :o
 
We didn't bother to check with the neighbours either.............  ;D

Neat thing about the Thud is that the car parked behind it makes you realise how big it is.
