While killing a couple hours on AviationHumor.net I discovered this gem:

And, of course, there's the two-seat Sea Hornet for retreiving the Minister of National Defence from his fishing trips.  >:D

Oh wow, how did I miss that idea? That just screams to be done, and I DO have a surplus of F-18s.

That is without a doubt the best Fw-190 I have ever seen ;)

Interesting arrangement for the operator, like the little elbow pads, a very nice touch on the details.

For you Luft'46 fans this link will be a real kick in the pants: ------> http://www.txsquadron.com/forum/index.php?action=printpage;topic=1658.0

There is one image that I will describe as the "Mother of all Mistels" that is about half-way down the page.  You will know it when you see it.  :)

Right: "Mother of all Mistels" it is.
Love the art work.  So many kitbash concepts.  If only I could build faster.

His screen name at Flikr is dizzyfugu and he has some really nice models in his image gallery.  The one that caught my attention first is his 1:72 Italeri - MiG-37Sh ‘бе́лая сова́’/ ‘Snowy owl’ (Ferret G); Russian Air Force "305 Grey"; 970th IISAP, Lipetsk, 2001 (Whif/kit conversion)

Click on html or thumbnail image to access dizzyfugu's flikr page and his image gallery.  Enjoy! 




His MiG-37 includes a series of images showing the finished model along with a back story/alternate history and build history on the kit.  This is the same guy that was making an aircraft model display base using hexagonal tiles.  Yes, invitation sent.  Had to create a flikr account in order to contact him but it is part of Yahoo so it was easy enough to do since I have a Yahoo eMail address.  Now to hurry up and wait for a reply or see if he joins our rebellious little group.

dizzyfugu is also a regular on the What-If Forum.  Some of his stuff is really interesting.
