INSPIRATION :)
« on: July 28, 2016, 04:49:30 AM »
Sickening, weakening
Don't let another somber pariah consume your soul
You need strengthening, toughening
It takes a bit of dark to rekindle the fire burning in you
Ignite the fire within you

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

Joining front of TSR-2 with rear of YF-23 is the best way to have one :)

An airfix 1/600 Victorious just happens to scale to about the size of a 1/700 Malta.............

A 1/72 Walrus morphed into a 1/144 flying boat:





Various 1/72 pontoon projects, first one became a 1/900ish scale sub, the USS Crappie.



This one became a 1/144 Canadian flying boat using 1/72 Sopwith Tripe wings & horiz stabs:





and this one turned into an Argentine flying boat:



This was a 1/144 Guppy that became the 1/350ish Yellow Submarine Mk II:



Next up are various 1/700 sub hulls that became 1/1000ish airships:





Now two 1/48 kits shrunk to 1/72. First one was the famous Testor's Curtiss Racer biplane:



and the venerable Testor's Spirit of St Louis which became a 1/144 trimotor airliner:



Last is my favorite, a 1/72 He-219 Uhu that turned into the 1/144 Tophe 4 motor:





I got a million of 'em!

Probably going to regret this but I actually find the F-35 to be ascetically more pleasing than the F-22.

I'm waiting for a lightning bolt from Air Power Australia to strike me dead. ;)

No positive statements relating to the F-35 will be tolerated ever.

Same. I've been kicking around grafting an F-35 front section onto an F-22... someday. Here is more F-22 like JSF concept that could also be toyed with with when it comes to scale:



and another F-22 scale-o-rama  idea:






F-35 is scaled up about 10 percent from X-35^

From the Red Star Comic:





Huge Merkava-esque tanks.
