Thanks folks.

That's VERY ingenious Fred, and the colour scheme is just wonderful.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

The bomb bays in the engine nacelles are very clever and I love the beaching trolley. Where did that come from BTW, it looks vaguely familiar somehow?

Trolley is from the Arii Nakajima kit the floats came from.

Yes! Looks great.

Can I put it on my Comet website?
(With the appropriate credits of course)

Course you can Tom.  I would be honoured.

Very vry pretty. But I'd have expected something more ahem "macho" from your pirates.  ;)
Where does the tractor come from? Wheels look from the Hot Wheels series.

Ah but the Sky Pirates simply put the Cupid into service without repainting it.  Having said that they already have a pink N1K1 in their ranks.
Tractor is by Hasegawa.  They include it with their Beechcraft Mentor and one of their MU2s.  Wheels are indeed by Hotwheels.

So if you did some stunt flying with it, could you call you act a....
