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 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? ???

The more easy to make is a little asymmetry (3 engines without external starboard one).
There is a good technical reason for such a layout: having fun in designing... ;)

not exactly a whif, except for the livery of course
but that incredible twin-fuselage deserves attention
like other creations by Rutan
