The Ming-5s can be altered from a Mig-15 which is what I used for the line-drawing.  A 1/72nd model based on a F-86 Sabre or FJ-1 Fury kit gave me the idea for the wing shapes - just need to do new wings & fin.

That Ming-5c screams out to be made variable geometry!

I took another look at that Fuji turboprop and I sure hope they have exceedingly smooth taxiways and runways 'cause there's minimal ground clearance with those props and I suspect that digging into dirt or concrete will not help them in their intended function.

contrarotating propellers helped for ground clearance anyway, maybe not enough but that was a good reason to use them here...

Yes, pleasant but what is it? or by what has it been inspired?

      oh, yes I forgot to say, didn't I.
              It's a Bake-17b of the Chinese Nationalist Forces, 1950 -- done for a story (The history of aviation in a neo-imperial China) on the "other" site where the Nationalists continue to fight the Communists instead of fleeing to Formosa.

The AVG pilots stay & get to keep their old squadron markings too -- I'll post two more profiles of these soon ...

 :-* My favourites in this batch (genius once again) are the Buffalo with in-line engine and the true-long-nose Focke-Wulf (from this one, I may be inspired to draw a similar Mustang). Thanks!

EDIT: Here it is:

Thanks again, Raafif!

Thanks Tophe,
                      I'm afraid GTX may have to change his name to Dr.Schnoz as he does do some neat conversion designs.

Your Braafif with the Drafif's nose would look neat ... & add the Roo markings !!

It's all great... except for the Jugoslavia Mustang. Everybody knows that the 'Jug'oslavian Air Force only ever flew the P-47. :)
