Need some of Tophe’s P-38 designs.

The Corsair was built well after WW2 so say a bubble top with 20mm guns and all the ordnance they carried in Korea.

P-51H with 4x 20mm cannon?  P-47P blending the best of XP-47J and P-47N?  P-72B with P-47N wings and a five-bladed prop?  Operational F8B-1 fighters?

These are great inspirational Comics, some terrific ideas.

Love the Hammerhead inspired (Space Above and Beyond) Thunderbolty jet.

Although two crewmen with caps and no oxygen at 42,000 feet :o
I suppose the Double Trouble bomber would have been pressurised though. Nice nose art as well.

Great art work with lots of brain fodder.

I'd like to see more please.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
