How bloody good does this operational VJ 101 look!!😯

I've always wondered what the VJ 101's weapons arrangements would have been had it entered operational service. I don't know if this model's weapons layout is WhatIf, but it looks far more warlike than I ever envisaged!!

What was the source for this one?

I suspect a rather reduced weapons load for VTOL operations, probably something equivalent to what the Bell D-188A could carry.

Not sure how well those Sidewinders would last with the lift jet blasting out between them.

Might have to tweak the IR seeker cryo-engines a smidge?  ;D

Not sure if this has been seen here before...

A Ferrari 330 P4 powered by a 4-poster Pegasus built (I think) by Stefano Marchetti back in 2016. From IMPS UK.

I love the WW1 - M1 - Sherman - Gatling Gun one.  More modern tanks in WW1 schemes would be great.

Another wanna build with BdB flair.  :smiley:
More look at it, more I like it.
Note the two cannon and four machine guns.

That really looks like a BdB creation - except for the canopy and cockpit.
This looks like a US version of the  Westland Whirlwind. Maybe make a Whirlwind with two Allisons - although that may tear the Whirlwind apart...

The P-40 twin engine is based upon this real world creation:



I've seen a few attempts to model it over the years.  there doesn't appear to be much info on it apart from this single photo.

Iíve thought about applying this idea to a P-51B Mustang. Need regular size wings outside of the engines then extra wing between the engines and fuselage.

Move main landing gear into the extra wing so that it retracts as on a stock P-51B.  I could see either standard P-51B radiator scoops on each nacelle or leading edge radiators, as on the Mosquito, between the nacelles and the fuselage.  I've been tempted to try something like this as an early iteration toward the P-82.

It can't get much better than this.     Am thinking Amodel 1/72 releases for coming holiday season.    Perhaps another company.....
