I like that Swedish one!

And now I have to admit: I have to giggle every time I see a Swedish plane with the "FARA" warning... see, my parents are from Hungary, I speak Hungarian, and so that Swedish warning is to me like, indicating the blatantly obvious: an arrow pointing backwards, saying "its rear" ("far" is "rear" in Hungarian, the "-a" is the third person singular possessive marker - i.e. the arrow is telling you which way the airplane's rear is...) :P

Thanks all for your comments :)
Maybe some more mistels in the future...
For now I will post some work I have done when I was between foruns  :D

Here is the Curtiss SpitHawk, a derivate of the Curtiss 75 equiped with a Merlin engine (no it is not a P-40F   :D )
It was used mainly in the Mediterranean TO and exported to the Soviet Union.
Here are two examples of Soviet aircraft

Winter Camo

And another…
The Curtiss 77 was developed to meet specific French requirements of a Hawk 75 with a more powerful engine, more firepower and other improvements.
None were delivered before the fall of France and all were subsequently delivered to the free French forces.
They were used in many theaters of operations and were praised by its pilots for their reliability and toughness

That Hawk 77 has my admiration! Most excellent and definitely a "should've been" in my book!

Hello
In the late 60’s and early 70’s there was a trend amongst Western air forces to procure and field new fighters: many western air forces wanted a smaller number of squadrons equipped with large, two-engine interceptor, supported by large number of squadrons of multi-role, single-engine fighters.
That trend was express in the UK by two new designs: the Hawker Siddeley Osprey and the BAC Storm. The latter one was a two-engine interceptor that was later developed also as a strike aircraft.

Here is one of RAF’s  BAC Storm

Nice, looking like a half breed of F-15 and Mirage (for air intakes)
