The Stuka's fuselage is actually quite small and narrow.  That would make incorporating most radial engines difficult on the airframe, and that's the only type of engine the Navy used on carriers.  Despite that, I have been looking at my options for increasing power available on the aircraft.
Consider the fairings and exhaust installation on the Fw-190A et al., that could work for fitting a larger radial to the slim airframe.  See also the Ki-100 engine installation.

Oh, exactly.  The P-36 and CW-21 are also great examples of this.  It's absolutely possible, but this is also a reason why you won't be seeing an R-2600 on this ever.

Hey everyone, I've added a new poll.  Let me know what profile you'd most like to see me do next.

Cheers,

Logan

Hey, Logan!

Beautiful job on a scottish roundel (perhaps to do a slightly smaller lion?).
About a poll: one of (so far) two votes for He 100 is mine. How about a float variant in a Mad Max style?

A B-10?  I hope that's a typo.  I didn't include an option for a brand new type (especially not one that's been done well before) because new types are very hard to do when you do them at the level of detail that Talos and I do.  Talos and I have another major one planned soon, but that won't be for a few months, probably.  We have enough profiles that we want to do for the existing aircraft anyway.  I just wanted to see if there were some major directions the forum would like to see us go.

Cheers,

Logan

The alternate F-14 has my vote. Especially a Phoenix-armed example, and aircraft belonging to the IIAF, USMC (four squadrons were originally tapped to be F-14 units, with VMFA-122 and VMFA-531 meant to be the first two), and a potential USAF buy for the NORAD mission.

One of the NORAD missions ones definitely has to be in full color 318th FS. markings with the compass rose on the vertical tail.

I do like that Scottish roundel with the superimposed cross of St. Andrew  :)

As for the poll, I'm voting for the He 46!

And a second NORAD bird for the CA ANG's 144th FIW from Fresno. Now an F-15 unit....

Thanks for the feedback, everybody!  I'll definitely be referring to this thread when I get ready to do my next group of profiles.  I still have some to finish up for GBs, but they'll be next on the list after that!  Keep up the discussion, though!

How about another Frogfoot?  As per usual, click on the profile to see it at a larger size.  I've also submitted this to the Scottish Independence GB.



Here's another retro scheme trialed by No. 612 on their Skorpions.  This one comes from their postwar Vampires, the last aircraft flown by the unit.  The roundel bars are based on those worn by No. 612 at that time.  All the profiles and models I've seen showing this are of poor quality and/or contradictory.  I haven't seen a good photo of them, either.  I've asked someone more knowledgeable than myself on such things and he advised me that it was based on the Gordon tartan.  That sounded reasonable enough to me and fit the more reliable sources, so that's what I based them on, as well.



Weapons are the RBS-15, Maverick, and AMRAAM in a very anti-ship loadout.

Cheers,

Logan
