For this one I was first thinking of Tomcats (but they were too large for that), and then of a pair of F5Es (one in 1/72, the other in 1/144) :

Not just Sidewinders (a breed of rattlesnake that senses heat) on the wingtips for these.  Definitely unique looks.

That one definitely looks like it's a "should be" rather than a "what if"!!  that's an entirely gorgeous aircraft.
