Well, I know what I'm doing with my Testors 1/72 F-19...some chopping and shaping and I'll have a nice 1/48 UCAV! Thanks for the inspiration!

One aircraft I have never liked the canopy on is the Meteor F.1.  So when the CyberHobby kit was put on an aggressive sale, I included it in the order for the express purpose of making it a UAV.

Inspiration source:  It couldn't be Greg's illustration from a few years back now could it?   :-)

Some of my UCAV photo montages were extremely close to Greg's artwork although I had not seen it at the time.
I'm reposting here stuff previously seen in other topics (or other sites)... all of which may further inspire some of you to tackle those pilotless designs and turn them to plastic for our enjoyment...

Starting with the Boeing QF-18H Hornet UCAV:
