Make more or re-engine? The French had used French made FW-190s post war (the NC 900)

Yes, in fact an example is the 20mm Hispano used in the Boomerangs was reverse engineered and locally produced from a single example brought back from the middle east.

The other idea is Panzer III, IV and Stugs end up in Australia in the same way.

B-47M  --  Others and I have discussed doing builds like this.  Here we have great example of one.  8)
Makes me wanna also build one even knowing finish will not be fine quality we see here.  Be fun to build, thatz the main point.

Now *that* is quite a beauty.  My upgraded B-47 will not be as extreme, but seeing this tempts me to use that camouflage pattern, or perhaps an "Asia Minor" for earlier Mideast operations.

Questions:
 - Why would you build such a large target?
- Is this a German vehicle? One of the guys in the first image is pointing. Must be German.

I would be pissed if a heap of money/effort was spent on the vehicle but then I was only given a long ladder to enter/exit...
