Thanks ysi for this piece of laughing on Sunday morning... :-* :D

Though, I object a little: as prooven by the A300/767 then 777, big load does not need many engines nowadays.
All is different with safety: when 2 engines are in a jam on a 2-jet airliner, passengers may die in the crash.
So when Douglas presented the DC-13, the sellers were affirmative: "even if 5 engines are in a jam, the 6Th one will save you, zero risk!"

Yes - Constellation would be super to do..    To still be a Constellation, three tails are required.  A most destinctive feature.

The thrree-engined Bf110 looks interesting, but I think you've got the center engine too far forward for good weight and balance.  I'd move it aft until its firewall is about a foot ahead of the windscreen.  Now, the tri-gear variant might need a bit more room to allow for stowing the nose gear, but I'd still move the engine no farther forward than necessary and look at rotating the wheel assembly and stowing it under the pilot.

New drawings starting with #30 are all cool and inspiring for bashing.  You making me overwhelmed with want-to-do's with current bash about 60% done and a few others with basic configuration-models determined.  All to be faster than Slowy Jet (maybe one won't).  And now I have to leave town for a week and stop construction.  So many concepts, so many models, not enough time.  No doubt ysi_maniac will contribute to my restless nights of kit-bash configuration contemplation while traveling.

Before reading this at bottom of picture "This can be done in styrene with a He-177 1/72 and a Tu-20 1/100 scaloramed to 1/72" I was thinking same thing.  After doing a few attack & fighter planes I would like to try medium to big bomber bashes.

Crossing F4U and P-47
([url]http://i1080.photobucket.com/albums/j340/ysi_maniac/Drawing/f4u_p47.jpg[/url])

I'm not sure how viable this one is.  Just in the nominal takeoff position, it looks like the prop nearly hits the ground once the tail comes up; any bounce and "Whoops!!"

There is a nice side view in the WAPJ sidebar page on never built Drakens that accompanies their in-depth look at the Draken.

And the short-range double-load /5m...:
([url]http://www.kristofmeunier.fr/Fw200_5mZ2.jpg[/url])
What a bunch of weird ones!

If more powe rwas needed, you could add back the outboard engines for a seven-engined aircraft.  For real range and load carrying, spread the two fuselages apart, add two further engines to the center section and lengthen the fuselages forward and aft of the wing for capacity and to keep weight and balance in hand.

Gee,,,  minutes before you posted Ventura I was evaluating a kit for bashing and figured a 1/72 Ventura should be pulled out of stash to check some of it will work as donator parts.  Shape looks good.  Dimensions may not match close enough to combine.

Great Ventura profiles  :)

Agreed.  Considering what some sources describe as the origin of the triple-tail on the Constellation, or Excalibur as it was originally called, a response to teh triple-tail on the DC-4E, a single-tail is quite believable.

More Canberras. Hehehe many of you will recognize turboprop engines and some will recognize wings too. ;)

 I don't recognize the engines, but the wings look like they came off the XP-54...

 Great stuff, anyway - the Canberra just looks right with turboprops.

How is this for a plastic version? P-80 is the Airfix mold. Wings are from a Hasegawa Fuji T-1A. I had to cut the front bottom portion of the P-80 wing out to fill the gap. After some sawing and filing, I think it provides an acceptable transition.  No one is going to see it but I did this to address my OCD.

The T-1A root chord is almost the same length as the original.

Hmm, start from a T-33 fuselage but still use a F-80 cockpit and canopy and you'd be close to Lockheed's proposed F-80E.

I'm not familiar with P-80E Evan, Do you have a picture?

But you got me thinking. What if I:

A. removed the wing fences
B. removed all the trim tabs
C. rounded off the vertical and horiz stabilizers
D. moved the horiz stabilizers about 1/2 way up the vertical stabilizer
E. added some cool pointy tip tanks from a 1/128 Constellation

: Tophe November 05, 2014, 08:06:26 PM
The Shackleton liner is pleasant at first sight. :)
An engineer would probably ask why selecting a mid-wing airplane to make an airliner... Is this: passengers above the wing and cargo under the wing? ???
: Re: ysi_maniac's drawings
: elmayerle November 06, 2014, 03:07:10 AM
That particular configuration gives an upobstructed passenger cabin, with the wing carry-though structure passing underneath the floor.  Unless you want real rough-field capability, that or a low-wing design are the best approaches for a passenger aircraft.  Would this be called a "Shackletonian" or just a "Shackleton Liner"?  I keep in mind that Convair's "Liberator Liner" shared only wing and tail surfaces with the Liberator, and then it was the B-24N with the single vertical tail.

Further: I should note that the main landing gear length requirements are going to be the same with a mid- or low-wing in that you've got to keep the props clear of the ground at the highest gross weights and sink rates.  A mid-wing like this actually lowers the passenger compartment relative to the ground for purposes of access and loading.  Besides, a mid-wing does not need as much of a fairing into the fuselage as a low-wing would.

Mixing Yak-9 and La-5



Interesting.  In the real world there were radial engined developments of the Yak-7:

(http://www.airwar.ru/image/idop/fww2/yak7m82/yak7m82-1.gif)

And later Yak-3:

(http://forum.valka.cz/attachments/3588/yak3u-1.jpg)
(http://forum.valka.cz/attachments/3588/Yak-3U_ASh-82FN_3D_view.gif)

The latter one being particularly attractive. 

Both used variants of the M-82/ASh-82 engine.

I wouldn't be surprised if at some point the Yak-9 was also trailed as such, though I can't find any reference...

For the formula of it, I am not sure but I suspect this is the (4+16+16)/3=12, so YF-12, the Real (secret) one!
A US-president by mistake said in the 1960s that the YF-112 was named YF-12, but  this was wrong (or a clever trap to fool the spies)... ;)

Wow, that looks strangely plausible. I think you could do a "realistic" French one as part of their attack helicopter experiments in Algeria. I'd do it without the nose mounted engine and probably Corsair horizontal tail, as well, but I think that might almost work as a proto-Hind.

Cheers,

Interesting!!  Skip the engine and propeller up front and use the turboshaft version.  Be somewhat appropriate since at one time Vought and Sikorsky were a combined division of United Aircraft.

  Your B-24 airliner has a real grain of truth in it. Early B-24's were used as
unarmed transports called C-87's, and the British converted some of their
Avro Lancaster bombers into Lancastrian airliners in 1946-47.

Probably very noisy (and draughty due to the main undercarriage doors). How about stations for inflight mechanics? On very long-range flights, the mechanics could do minor engine tweaking from inside the wings and nacelles.

A little XB-43 (which I always thought was a neat looking plane) and a little B-66 Destroyer.  Neat idea!  I think they would have had to go with a more traditional flight deck arrangement as opposed to the two blisters for the pilot and co-pilot.  The twin canopy blisters looked cool, but probably wouldn't have been effective long term.  Neat rendering!

Single-seat Tonka is cool.  8) Has a bit of an AMX vibe to it.
Going by the size, it could've been a neat replacement for all the Ginas flying about in NATO's airspace.

Yep, I liked the Allison Wildcat, too.  The single place Phantom was interesting, but I think Carlos was right; it's tough to make the Phantom any cooler than it already is.  (Full disclosure: Being a native of the St. Louis area where they were made, and having a front row seat to seeing them fly in and around the area during my youth, I have an unnatural phondness for Phantoms.)

Small fighter made of a scaloramed Heller 1/100 SMB2 and some bits (nose, canopy and wings) of an Airfix 1/72 MiG-21. Canard delta configuration.

Finnish MiG-21 and Gnat are included for comparison purposes.

Hawker Sea Fury equiped with Hs293. Two different locations. Aft seat is for bomb operator. Not in constant scale however; bomb has been reduced to 75%. So a new reduced Hs293 equivalent must be developed.
