I found this cheap Williams Renault and thought something could come out of it :
I improved it by fitting wings from a F-5 (ok, not very long ...)

It wouldn't surprise me to see something like this at the Indianapolis 500 some day.

Great outside-the-box thinking!

Should have been a Red Bull F1 rather than a Williams car, 'cause...

...you know...



Aaaaand, I'll get my coat...

Regards

P.S.
Beautiful Twin Otter Buccaneer!

thanks a lot!


a Red Bull car would have been nice indeed  ;)
I took this one essentially because there was a sale and it was cheap  ;D

I think this one may be my favorite of yours yet, eric!

A flying fire truck is truly inspired and that's one clean, smooth build!

Agreed!  It really looks of a whole and everything fits together beautifully.

Me, too!  It actually looks like a "practical" flying car. Reminds me of the Ford Pinto with Cessna Sky aster wings and rear engine. The AVE Mizar seen here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/AVE_Mizar

thank you all very much !

It did indeed fit very nicely, and the 1/43 4L was a die-cast with nice details which I was happy to keep, and its red fit very well with my usual Humbrol 019 gloss enamel red  ;)

thanks for the reference to the Ford/Cessna hybrid : I had seen some pictures of it, and it sure is an influence to me
