VERY nice!  The planes aren't half bad either  ;)

Any plans for some more?  Would love to see some FAA and/or RAN versions.

I see "acme" and keep expecting to see Wiley Coyote :)

Nice float plane you have created.  What else is incorporated into this besides the Messerschmidt/BFW engine?

Well, I'll hazard a guess that the engine is a Daimler-Benz engine from a Bf-109F and is mated to the center and aft fuselage of a Yak-23.  The wings may come from the Yak, too (and I have to ask about radiator location(s) because I don't see anything here).  I'm not at all certain where the float set up is from.

Maybe a couple in either Japanese markings or even the scheme the RNZAF F4Us wore?

 The engine and wings are from ARC's G-55/Me-109 hybrid. The mid and tail sections are from Americo Maia's Yak-23

Love the FAA machine man  8)

Since you brought up Yaks how about some lend lease machines for the Soviets for their gun cruisers?  Would look neat in some shades of gray/white for arctic duty.  Kiwi, Canadian, and some captured birds would be neat too.

Those are some outstanding profiles, Jorel!

And the pinup art on them is wonderful!

Your talent is off the charts and an inspiration!

Indeed!  Love the Red Fleet bird, its so festive with all the red and green  ;)  For some reason the Soviet markings seem to suit it more so than the Allied sets.  Am I nuts?
