Maybe the railroads could have maintained passenger service longer if they took a can't beat 'em, might as well join 'em approach.

Very nice, 'cept the Feds shut them down after WW II when they tried it.  The ATSF (Santa Fe) railroad was definitely into developing an air cargo operation and both DC-4's and Dc-3's flew in a variation of their "Warbonnet" paint scheme.  Since D&H did a variation on that with the Alco PA-2's they purchased from the Santa Fe, 'twould be interesting to see that scheme, in their colors. on a modern aircraft.

I would guess the scale to be 1/72nd and that is only because there is an ESCI 1/9th KettenKrad on display behind it.

Wow, particularly like the Canberra interceptor (with F-89 Scorpion-like wingtip missile pods)😯👍
Also trying to assertain what's deemed different with the Invincible class model?🤔

That cartoonish looking airplane in front of the carrier looks like a Supermarine drawing board design.

No, it's a prone-pilot Hunter. The modeller merely took the experimental prone-pilot Gloster Meteor F8 a step further.

It's a Dutch what-if; HNLMS Karel Doorman, what-if the Dutch had purchased an Invincible class carrier.
The aircraft behind it are also Dutch what-if's.
