Really an outstanding use of that Letov kit. I have one in my stash but haven't built it yet. Mine has a small problem, the scalloped wing is different from the right and left sides  !!  Those "fishy" wings are outstanding. How were  they made ?

thank you all for your appreciation!
it is a great source of energy to continue even way beyond  ;)

thanks Father Ennis, especially in the light of the long experience you mentioned in your other post : happy brithday !

If you have a Letov with a bug, the advantage of such "out of bounds" designs is that you can try to incosporate imperfections as design features  :D Now you just have to find out what to cross it with  ;)

The flying fish wings just come from the figurine : I chose the crossing with the Letov essentially because I had one  ;) and the sizes / length were quite the same, which makes the crossing fit nicely.

Eric, these things are closer to art than models, and I mean that in a very good way. Have you ever thought about getting them in a local gallery?

Inspired stuff.

thank you all for your comments!
these are artictic models on the sense that they explore possible shapes anf forms, but still they are models, made out of bashing  ;) so I like to show here, and I might show them also to the art world, it's a matter of finding open-minded people, I know some.

Here are some more : some were made ealier in the past, but they contribute to the series.
