Pembroke & He-59 , red : hybrid aircraft/animals e.a.

this fifth out of five is a case showing that it is sometimes risky : I thought it would not look as good as the others (while still being of course  outrageously unlikely), because of the wings too big for the fuselage, but in the end it is quite ok to me  ;)







plus : I like to make cycles, and this one it closes it as in a merry go-round

That looks the business! I like how the engine nacelles are canted downwards towards the rear  :smiley:

Been remiss at following your builds.   :icon_crap:   So was a delight browsing them going back aways.   All are fine by me.  :smiley:   Amazed you continue to find these kit-bash combinations.

The B-66 and Osprey combos are fantastic! I can't pick a favorite.

closing the loop :
the Lysander was very cheap, very badly started, and very incomplete,
but somehow useable to try out cray stuff

from time to time I should justify the "animals" in the title of the hread

here a Beetle from Fujimi
and a Matchbox Hawk, in natural color (mostly)









and its reciprocal, with blue wings, apart from natural black plastic

Love 'em  :-*

The poor stag beetle doesn't look like he has enough wing area to support him in flight. But then you remember that the real stag beetle has even less lifting area!  ;D
