   :unsure:   $16 so what the hell.

Turboprop it.... :wacko: :wacko: :wacko:

 ;D ;D ;D Sheeeyit...   ;D ;D       I had for about .5 seconds consider slapping wings on it somehow.  :rolleyes: :wacko:

In the realm of something more plausible, I wonder if it would be possible to turn this into the cruiser in Space Balls that transformed and sucked the atmo out of that planet. Scratch up a vacuum cleaner, etc. Definitely not something I'd undertake, but someone could (and perhaps already has).

Yes, LONG ones!  ;)
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! :)

Bring it out of retirement as a mobile suit.

It's not a bad read, for what amounts to a detective novel in an alt-hist setting.  Includes some rather interesting characters based on real people as well.

Cheers Scoot. I seem to remember a synopsis I've read now, so train it is  :thumbsup:

That Statue of Liberty would certainly make an interesting centre piece for a display.

You should pitch that idea to some video game makers and try to squeeze some money out of them. That would make for a pretty cool premise for a video game level....    matter of fact, I think Ghostbusters did pretty much just this in GB II.  :mellow: :mellow: :mellow:

I was thinking that...

Another take on that image:

"It's basically a cure... for not being an axe-wielding homicidal maniac... the potential market's enormous!"

"Lasers!"

"Please dial *617 at this time"

"Now then, Butch Harry. Tell us about Fulham."

From Aliexpress, a 4D Models J15 Eggplane.  This is a pre=painted knock off of the Hasegawa kit.  I already have a yellow version I bought at Model Expo last year which turned out to be missing its canopy.
I suspect it will end up in an RAAF scheme.

Christmas has come  early  in my house  and a parcel  containing a small amount  of expensive resin was given  to me by my girlfriend.  Apparently,  she does  listen to me  when I  talk to her about  what I am building,  and  what I would like to build  :-X
Anyway  said kit is the Fantastic Plastic (Anigrand) Vickers  Armstrong  Type 599, and  very  nice  it is too, it looks  a nice easy  build,  so it  ver3 well could  be on the bench  when I have finished the  F-105, SR.53  and Delta II . I am going to have to  up my game  big time this Christmas  aren't I.

This I plan to be a what-if USAF Thunderbirds pilots' shuttle. This fancy gimmick can roll up and disperse the pilots right before they hop in their aeroplanes to do a demonstration. (sounds like reasoble BS to me!)  :thumbsup:
