Your latest red one is a fantastic leap of imagination and some outstanding modeling!

I really like the eyes. Brings it all together for me.

The nose with that blister on top works so well it's incredible!

That red combination reminds me of a cross between the U.S.S. Seaview fromVoyage to the Bottom of the Sea and the SeaQuest from the television show of the same name.

I read the title as "giant squid calmer" on the first pass......

The red one in particular makes me think of hermit crabs that appropriate the discarded shells of other sea creatures. Maybe this is a species of giant squid that feels the need for armour and has therefore repurposed the front end of a long-crashed Tu-20 as protection for itself. I dread to think what it might be afraid of...

Sometime ago I had tried a blend of a spanish guitar with the wings of a PZL39 :
this time it is an electric guitar with a S-21G (from PM, 1/72) :

That really looks good!
I'm desperately trying to think of an album cover that has something like this.
Of course there was Boston.

But those were spaceships.
I'll think of it sometime next week........

I recently bought a model of the twin guitar of Led Zep fame :
I plan to do something twin-boom with that  ;D

the bottle is a Duvel bier (my ever favorite brand, since my childhood)

and these wings and wheels seems to fit quite nicely

I like how that blunt nose shape is mimicked by the engines and is complimented by the straight wings & horiz stabs.

Blue is the perfect color for this baby!

Biplane twin-bottle with struts tying it all together and engines on the lower wing so that applying full power doesn't tip the aircraft on its nose.

This talk of crossing guitars with flying machines is kind of making me nostalgic for the old Boston album covers.
