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

My mind is already boggling, looking at the components there.  :o
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Duck, Mustang, Airacobra, Bf110, Fw190, Pe2 and Beaufighter parts are in the box so far.
It looks really good in my head.  I should prolly do a concept sketch.

MeKo 7? Obviously refers to the 7 different kits being bashed together in a Mess of Kookiness.

Looks like Duck lower hull, Airacobra upper fuselage, and Mustang wings are on order. Possibly going to transform into a twin-engined bird with the Bf110 or Beau powereggs?

Its the seventh design from the метательное копье design bureau.
I've since added to the box parts from a Mosquito.

Here's a sketch.

And here's a mock up.  As you can see i've been busy with the saw.

That contraption is pure mad genius and definitely looks all the way Soviet. Nice idea to move the cockpit to the float, and the Bf110 tails should suit her well. (Also, do I see contraprops in the sketch?) Of course, the design "might" be "slightly" top-heavy due to the engine (will it be turboprop even?), but isn't that what the wing floats are for? :wacko:

Having looked it up: метательное копье means javelin (if Russian) or throwing stick (if Ukrainian), according to Google Translate. So, the probable contextual translation is "throwing spear".


Just me being me. ;D
