Carl,

Fantastic on all counts, especially in the conception.

But ... the paint job is especially nice, as it looks freehand, and flawless.

And great décalcomanies, as they say in Quebec.

all best

I had originally thought of using one of those, the problem with it is the chin turret I have under the nose. I don't want any interference between the two guns so the GAU-8 has to be positioned higher than the bottom of the fuselage. I want the chin turret to be operational when the GAU-8 is in use.

The drawing you've attached though, gives a good idea how long the barrels and breach actually is, about 3 meters or 9'-10"

I would use the GEPOD but fair it into the front of the sponson.  This would put the muzzle pretty much in the same position as the rockets that were trailed a little while back:


Note that a production version of this would have pylons for gunpods (small), rocket pods, or missiles on both sides though there are dimensional limits; for ex. you could only have a double rack of Hellfires, adding a second pair below them isn't possible without hitting the ground when on the gear.

Possibly.  I've got a few figures from this seller and they are definitely on the larger side.   Though he still markets them as 1/32.

Both figures look really good! But the size ratio looks a lot greater than 1/35 to 1/32; there should be about 6mm or 1/4" difference between the two. Maybe it's the picture angle?

Those are great and a further testament to your enviable talent and skill!

It looks like they stepped right out of some period photos or film.

You've got an enviable talent for figures!

I really like your paint work. Captures the look and feel of this mythical creature to a T.

Dear sweet baby Jesus wearing a Leafs' jersey ....

Was I reading Clancy's "Maple Leaf Rising" or Larry Bond's "Poutine Phoenix"?

Take one part Atwood and add a dash of Stephen Leacock, Farley Mowat, Don Cherry and Rick Mercer.

I am not worthy, eh!

Carl, a masterpiece ...
