The red one is both harmonious and civilian (it seems), I am delighted :-*

Superb stuff, pretty sure I swatted one of them red buggers in my garden last week, it kept trying to refuel from me pint!  ???
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

not quite hybrids, but a nice pair of kits I found lately, of the brand Renwal, of very early aircraft.

They were both composed of a plastic "squeleton" with a kind of fabric to be cut and pasted in order to finish the surfaces.



I chose to keep the Antoinette as a squeleton, because I liked the idea, in blue :





and for the Voisin biplane, my motivation to find and build it came originally from a painting by Robert Delaunay in the 1910s where its simplified geometric shape appeared :

and I did it in a more Mondrian-esque livery :

a cross-kit-bash, in 1/43 Heller : a bit sketchy but gives the idea

The most funny may be the wheels of different size! :D :-*

a kitbash, from remains I had from previous projects ... nothing should get lost !  ;D
The Twin Otter is remarkably flexible and adaptable ; and I still have two more in my stash  ...  :o
And the Mi-1 parts were used with a pipe shown earlier in this very same thread.
And the top cockpit from some old Zero-like japanese plane.

Very elegant, harmonious and surprising all at the same time.
If you would say this is a 1945 ancestor to the Twin-Otter, I would try to make (with PhotoPaint) a Zwilling derivative... Yes? ???
