That tilt-rotor Starlifter is a beast. Those rotors would be gigantic.

WOW - do you have a good eye for configuration changes or what :)
I am learning from these.
How you ever saw a seaplane lurking within the S-3 is brilliance :o

 I still have another starlifter, which I will make as a Quad rotor.

My thought process is a little strange sometimes. Sometimes I'll get carried away with a theme (when I came up with the sea viking I was on a seaplane theme), sometimes a design idea will pop into my head out of nowhere and other times I'll see something in something. For example I turned my sea viking upside down and got this idea( probably needs some scaleoraming and wing smallening):

After watching Yukikaze for the nth time and having a surplus of hornets:



Just remembered that I wanted to put the forward canards on top, behind the cockpit, D'oh. Still looks good the way it is though.

I like your four-engine Hawkeye.  Have you considered applying that same concept to the C-2 Greyhound?  :)

Love that 4 engined stretched Hawkeye! :)

The VTOLs look a bit like Grumman Model 698:
