Found this on ARC. 1/72 Bird Models Lippisch DM-1 with NACA-modifications on Academy Lockheed Ventura PV-1



The DM-1 never flew, it just was tested in the wind tunnel. So my model shows a fictional test plane on a (also fictional) Lockheed Ventura PV-1 with a typical NACA-paint scheme.

Full build story is here.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

That is really cool, you could almost see it, given time, evolving into a full angle decked carrier.

Not sure how/where the 6 J79s are installed. But very cool regardless.

I think we need a new group build: Bombers to Tankers (BTT).

Both really good! 8)

The half-trackless looks like they ran out of running gear units &, rather than stop the assembly line, just used some truck rear axles they had lying about to finish them off.

The lower one looks more Sci Fi than WW2, wouldn't look out of place in a post-apocalyptic scene or exploring an alien planet.
