I found this nice RWD-6 kit, cheap, and original :I hadnot heard before of that aircraft,
and here it is hybridized with a dolphin, and with a snail shell

I love this family/collection spirit with no special wonder but groups of similar oddities... :-*

I really like the Arado shark and the dolphin biplane. Seeing these imaginative creations finished in blue is just the icing on the cake!

Very pleasing to look at...relaxing actually.

Thank you for going where few have taken this hobby before, ericr!

thanks a lot!

I am just following my inspiration, and lobe it when you like it.

Sometimes my inspiration also comes from others like Tophe's book-planes :


 do you remeber this ?

sometime ago you had an idea which got into my mind : the Book-Airplane :



and I liked so much that I had to try it out : using an Airfix Ar196, and a Clairefontaine notebook, cut to the shape of the wings :



it could have been featured in a Tophe-inspired group build!   ;D


I thought it worthwhile to continue the exploration with another, high-wing example, using a Do-27 :





next one might be a delta  :)


here is the delta-winged Su-21G, in red :

Thanks! These are great improvements:
- (Do 27) lateral windows for in-flight reading (cruise flight is so boring...)
- (Delta Su-21) book planes in the supersonic jet age
So wonderful :-* Thanks again!

I am all the more happy when people see things I had not intended  ;)

apparently I forgot to show you this when I did it, so here it comes :

an authentic "charentaise", the very traditional french slipper
(preferrably worn with a moustache and a basque hat)
