Cvilian no.

But an airliner can be military, even painted in white. I think that your creativity will conceive something really amazing for us. :) :)

No civilian? Why not? Many airlines continued operations of some sort during WWII in the RW, so
why wouldn't they in this continuation fantasy?

BOAC for one used converted Wellington bombers and, of course, they had the famous
Ball-Bearing Run Mosquitos. In both cases the aircraft were in RAF cammo with civil
codes. They also used several other types in similar schemes.

And we, till now unmatched in ill,
Must leave successors more corrupted still."

That's killer, Mr GTX! I might be able to do something similar in 1/288 scale.

I been eyeballing those myself !!!  Those are so Kool !!!!!!   Where did you get the pictures ? I didn't see those on the Unicraft website or on FantasticPlastic either ??? I been thinking of trying some of those kits from Unicraft but haven't yet. I've heard they were good kits but don't know anybody who has bought one.

The pics as you can see by the link are simply on the Unicraft site. 

If anyone else wants to do this though go for it - I am working on another idea...

I been thinking of trying some of those kits from Unicraft but haven't yet. I've heard they were good kits but don't know anybody who has bought one.

Ennis, the kit subjects are good, but the kits can be a real challenge.  I've got a few of Igor's creations and with a bit of work they do clean up good.

This one below is half an Unicraft kit, it's a conversion to make the RR Griffon mid-engined Mustang, you get all the fuselage stuff, the wings come from a donor kit.

Thinking about it, this would fit into the beyond '46 nicely but it would have been more like the bottom pic, I was told by David Birch (the official RR Historian) that had it flown it would have had a Tempest tail fitted. I've also modelled this to have a RR Crecy engine installed, this was to be a 5000 hp 2-Stoke engine. EDIT: That should read, a 5000 hp, 2-Stroke, V-12, sleeve valve engine with an exhaust turbine to boot.

Thanks for the info,my friends,I checked after I read the post and found they had changed it since I last was there !!! They added several new kits and more pictures as well.  I've built resin kits before and they can range from equal to or better to crap and anything inbetween . I've made masters for resin kits before so I know that it's mostly up to the caster than the master maker.  I've got too many things to finish before I can start anything else but I'm ordering some soon anyway !!!   LOL!!!  I'm just wondering if I want to order direct or thru Fantastic Plastic. Not really worried about either just depends on cost.

I've ordered directly from Igor and the models showed up within a month. This was back when he was forcing styrene into his molds by hand (a few pieces had fingerprints molded into the plastic) and one side was charred. The quality was pretty bad. Some of his earlier resin kits were not very good either, but that may have been due to the late 90's resins he had available.

Some of his newer models seem closer to average in quality.

I would get them through Allen, especially if he has the kits in stock and you need it NOW.

Thanks for the info ,guys. I've discovered that he has made some changes in his website and added some things. I'm using Fantastic Plastic for my first buy. I'm just trying to decide on what I want !!!   One idea I had was getting the turbo conversion and the Falcon wings for an FW-190.  I'm also wanting the Heilofly III /57. Now that would be Kool to have in real life,too.  Soon as I've built something you will be seeing it here.
