Post-war variants with US or British engines?  Fw-190G with Centaurus and 5-bladed prop serving, say, in French Indo-China?  Or, later, in the Republic of Vietnam?

Fw 190 on floats (from a "Rufe", I think):




I did one of them in plastic, and used Rufe floats from the old JoHan kit.

Brilliant!  :) The extended rudder looks the part, too. Somehow forgot that while knocking together the profile.  :-\

You guys got it with profile and model  :)          Both look the part  :)
Interesting-different to go build FW-190 as floatplane.  Most BTS builds are interesting-different. 
Where did inspiration for floatplane come from ?      Thin air perhaps ?
Looks like adding floats to any aircraft slows them down a bunch !

Living as I do in the UK, where it rains a lot, building floatplanes makes a LOT of sense..........  :)

And nothing's quite so awesome as seeing a floatplane or flying boat take-off. I watched an Aquila Airways Solent lift off from Southampton Water when I was 6 or 7 maybe and I've been hooked ever since.

Ditto here in the Pacific Northwet/Cascadia.  :)

My first plane ride was in a Grumman Mallard from Ocean Falls down to Vancouver, British Columbia
in 1965. I've loved waterborne aircraft ever since.

There were a lot of proposals around this mix. I think that something must be worth.  ;)

France and Britain stand up to Germany at Munich over Czechoslovakia to the point of mobilising ready for war and Germany backs down.  Hitler is humiliated and attempts to assert his authority through a campaign of terror against those he perceives are his enemies, this backfires resulting a public uprising where he calls out the army and orders them to fire on unarmed civilians, the soldiers refuse and their officers back their men.  The mutiny become a coup, Hitler and other senior Nazi officials are arrested on charges of treason.  General elections are held and a social democratic coalition wins power. 

WWII starts in May 1940 when the USSR invades Poland and the Baltic states before turning on Germany,  France and Britain declare war on the USSR for filling their treaty obligations to Poland.  That war rapidly reaches a stalemate in Europe but the USSR moves against Iran and Iraq as well as the Balkans and into the middle east and North Africa.  Japan attacks Pearl harbour on December 1 1941 catching the USNs carriers along side and moves against the DEI, Malaya and Singapore in early 1942.  Germany has been exporting war materiel to its western allies thus Dutch, British and Australian forces employ the FW190 as their primary fighter bomber in SEA and the Pacific against the Japanese.

Here's some fantastic "What If" profiles by Tomás Reyes on DeviantART. There's many different examples of each type on his page, all "What If".
