I realize I already did some others as well ...

from my archive, and to compensate the PB loss, here is a little recall :



and another one, also Tophe inspired at the time :



and I have made another one which I will show soon, and still have one on my stash ...

[Tophe-inspired again!] P-51 Dv, blue Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

hi all, after being away from internet for a moment I'm back again.


So, some time ago I also discovered Tophe's P-51 Bv :



and it fired me to fetch another kit of the F_82 (I still have one left after that ...)

and make an imaginary interpretation, where the whiffing consists of going to the D version of the P-51, and augmenting visibility (it is a 3-seater) :

Marvelous :-*
And where are the extra parts (not P-82) coming from? (glazed posts, front and rear, and also the tailplane) ??? :smiley:

Those are some build combos. :smiley:
Nice plastic surgery, asymmetrical yet looking correct in their own way.
Yellow seaplane F-82 is concept I'd like to build with some undetermined fighter.  Also looks correct.

thanks !

the front glass come from a 1/48 P-61, and fitted just very nicely  ;)
the rear one I don't know ... and the tailplane maybe from a BF109?

Awesome concept. :o
Figuring top is hydrogen/helium filled.  All elements do come together.
