Found at ARC this morning:

Revell F-19 Stealth Fighter vignette in a very nice little forced perspective display can be viewed by clicking the thumbnail image or this link:
1/48 & 1/144 Revell F-19 Stealth Fighter - 1980s Stealth Dreams - Gallery Article by Thomas Brückelt on May 11 2020

Thomas has built three different versions of the F-19 so look closely to see what he has accomplished.

It certainly looks more appealing than the original kit markings.  :smiley:

Here's a weird one. On offer at Shapeways, a pair of tiny, 1/200 Canadian Car & Foundry C-1 'Huard' floatplanes. What the heck is a CanCar C-1, you ask? AFAIK, complete nonsense ... in the best whiffing tradition

This CCF C-1 looks to be based on the Max Holste MH-1521 Broussard ... or maybe just a twin-tailled Beaver? The original design came from some kind of wargame although this seems to be a civilian floatplane ("developed from the 'Mallard'" - presumably another what-if Can Car design?).

For the record, huard (or huart) is an obsolete Québécois name for a Loon (now called a Plongeon ... or a Richepaume in Acadia).

I take it a variation of this was eventually sold to Hatay, no?

That is nice  :smiley:  Between the camouflage scheme and the name Tyr, I could easily see this Versuchspanzer as being Swedish.
