Random idea:  French Armée de l'Air B-29 or B-50 in the late 1940s/early 1950s.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!

Possible schemes:

Or polished metal à la postwar Armée de l'air Marauders and Invaders?
The doorbell's ringing, could be the elves
But it's probably the werewolf ...

Possible schemes:


:smiley:
B-29 in this scheme and with a French version of V-1 as a cruise missile carrier.
Or maybe a scale-o-rama'd version of the Matra R.511 for a guided missile as an anti-shipping/stand-off attack version.

Cheers,
Moritz

Strangely enough I just bought this decal sheet off another Canadian who lives just down the road.

Note: For the non-Canadians, given our geography, the definition of "just down the road" is a drive lasting about 6-8 hours.

We get it.  I have been known to drive 180km twice a week just to go to the gym.

Folks in the US get that as well.  ;)

Just walk to the gym and back, no workout required!
