Something off the wall - B-17 wing with North Star engines fitted on the C-46 fuselage and tail.

After I had posted my pics of the kits, I had suddenly remembered I had seen an article about the C-130 FTB. I seem to remember now that they had to move the outer engine too. It sort of looks like that's what they did in the second pic down.

However, having shown all that, there was this C-130   :-[

Yup, that's Snoopy in its final role  :smiley:

Just for fun ... the inverted, upper intake version of the Europrop TP400

Thanks folks.

kitnut617: Thanks for the comparison shots!

The A400 is as big as a Short Belfast ---- now a TP-400 powered Belfast might be something ---

Mindful of Greg's 8-years-and-counting note, has anyone ever suggested a twin Tyne RAF Hercules?

Thanks for the comparison shots. I had planned a Lanc-winged C-46 sideview but can't remember if I even finished it. Hmmm, maybe I'll re-do it ... if I can't remember an earlier version, probably no-one else can either  ;D

The thing with C295 ideas and inspirations is Airbus have probably marketed just about every version you could possibly imagine.

AEW, MPA, gunship, just to name a few.


Indeed:

Need a new wing for the C-133, ISTR that the wing was one of the low-life components of that aircraft, even with the engines it had, let alone with the rather more powerful TP400's.
