Just wicked ....... I've looked at repainting toy store Dinosaurs before and thought the fish were cool but couldn't think of a use for them !

thank you all for your appreciation !  :D

dinosaurs certainly have potential : try it out !

I used not only fish, but also various figurines : I can post more soon

fish have a quite natural hydro/aerodynamic shape, like this whale, combined with a Beriev Be-6

Fishing is big business where I live.  I've always thought it was like watching mold grow but my Dad loved it.  My policy is ,"if you catch it,kill it,and clean it, I will happily cook it for you."  So , what do you call those ,alternatives to live bait ?  Or is it one of those terms that "don't translate" well ?   I've taught classes in many things,but this is the first time I've ever "taught English" before !  I hope you guys had as good a laugh as I just did.  BTW, I was not saying anything bad about your builds. In fact, I must say I like the Whale-of-a-plane the best of all !

I have gathered the 2 uncommon words, this is not a compound word in itself. Or... maybe you could try it. ;)

Combining a Beriev with that whale was truly inspired!

You've got a most unique perspective on the hobby!

Really cool thread! I love how everything is made physically!

I've been using Meshmixer to do similar things with digital models, that can then be 3D printed:

Thanks! I've been a fan of your conceptual sketches for a while, have been meaning to get a P38 3D model and try some experiments in Meshmixer.

extremely excellent!  :) :) :)

you really are into the future of Whif, which is 3D printing!

and the twin-shark-boom design is astonishing : a dream for Tophe certainly  ;)

thanks for you appreciation, I will continue posting things around here, and maybe your designs will inpire me for other ones  ;)
