Hi folks,

 A place for those random whiff ideas you have discovered which don't really fit into any category.

Here's one:

Interesting. Looks like some basic 3D drawing and a simple render tool. This might even be a plane crafted for video gaming or flight sims.

They refer to its a Me509, but to me it looks more like the offspring of a mating between a Me309 and Me262...

Continue pointed bulge at root of wing forward to prop and all the way back.  Enhance it outward a little so there is slanted side to top and bottom of fuselage .   Put on a “V” tail, other appropriate touches, and it can be attempt to reduce RCS of propeller plane.   Radar absorbent  finish on propeller blades and hub (rest of plane?) , F-117 type glass and framing.
To me, picture hints at doing that.

Gnaahr! This new-fangled environment-friendly aluminium foil is useless. Someone's been into my brain and extracted the idea of an Ankylosaurus with a Roman crew operating a Scorpio. Of course, they had to go overboard and blow it out of proportion by using Ceratopsidae and the Third Reich. Typical!

 ;D

I just wonder if that dino will keep in place or bolt when that 88 is fired! :-D

And despite the armored ridge plate behind the head, the beast should be wearing a "Pickelhaub".

4th post attempt- fingers crossed.

Heh - Dinotopia becomes Dinoreich....

If you wanted to build something like that onto a dinosaur model, you could do worse than start with some of these armoured train kits that are about at the moment: many of them have cars that are about the shape of those panniers....

I've thought about a modern version of samurai armour equipped with ERA tiles. :icon_ninja: Handy for stopping rifle-calibre bullets. Until the samurai has closed to katana-range. :icon_killbill:

Well if you're going to give your samurai ERA you might as well give him a honking Gatling gun...

I thought that you might like that patch  ;D  I'm wondering if the translation mightn't be a little funky though.

Can any Russian speakers confirm that "Стебель и Убеиaeт" is a reasonable translation for the motto "Stalk and Kill"? [Or should the latter be 'Убейте' ?]
