People have been asking me to join - so, here goes.
I started making some airplane mutations in 2012 and many have probably seen them elsewhere. The markings on the drawings may make it pretty obvious what part of the world I'm from.

Where to start? The older stuff ... I'll put in the modern(ish) jets before going back to my alternative WW2.
The first ones are mainly butchered in MS Paint, until I figured out some of the features of Inkscape  :o

In a split Finland - with some of the new countries perhaps no larger than Holland or Belgium - aircraft for defence were built out of whatever parts could be salvaged from other countries retired equipment. In Häme, parts of Euro F-16s were used:



A little later, canards were added for smoother maneuvering:

Re: Erryplanes by perttime - F-18XS "Hornette"

In Satakunta, the farm boys bolted their interceptors together out of old Hornet parts.

Later, the Hornette was developed into the "F-18XSM Super Hornette", with canards and some stealth features:

During early 2020s, some air forces around the Baltic were converting to the Eurostealth. Among them was Hemvärnet of the Åland islands.

I like compact aircraft but also think that there might be some practicalities to solve, to make them actually work...

Back to WW2, then. My FIRST whif picture only requires fairly minor changes to history.

In 1940-1941, a few Soviet designers were working on heavy fighters. One of them was Peter Grushin with his Gr-1. It isn't quite clear to me if it ever flew. The development site in Kharkov, Ukraine, was evacuated out of the way of a German offensive and the aircraft was packed into a train. The train was destroyed in an air raid, and both aircraft and documentation were lost.

What if... the train made it to safety and the Gr-1 turned out to be good?

Certainly, some would be captured and end up in Finnish colors...



(I don't remember which drawing I used for the outline. The colors are borrowed from a Petlyakov PE-2 or PE-3 drawing.)

One more today, before I get into slightly different developments...

In addition to the aircraft becoming operational, this one assumes that a small nation that was run over by the big boys in real life, stays independent.

Istrebitel Tyazholiy Pushechniy (Истребитель Тяжелый Пушечный): Heavy Cannon Fighter. Polikarpov's development had to be evacuated, and there were problems with the engine. So, when the ITP was finally flying, other high performance designs were already in service.

What if it went into production, and Latvia stayed independent and got some captured Polikarpov ITPs?



(The outline must be from a Russian site. Colors are stolen from a profile of a Latvian Gloster Gladiator.)

I love Eurostealth and Hornette  ;D
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!?
