Have the jet pipes been drilled out so the blowers are still operable?

Thanks for considering models of military aircraft like funny toys, rather than killers reproduction... ;)

thanks all!

the idea of having an air supply is certainly excellent, but, as for the tank shown before in this thread, this is only a proptotype, not fully equipped : if anyone feels inspired by a "dynamic" version, please go ahead !  ;D

if "favors" mean "gift toys", I agree completely, ericr should be the boss of Marketing department in several aircraft companies...

You really need sets of LED's, to simulate a flickering effect, in each cockpit and, where appropriate, navigator position.  Beautiful work!

maybe you remember this one?


for a change, and to get back to the animal hybrids, here is a windmill ostrich :



(with a propeller coming from a 1/32 Ar196 : I have two more ... have to find long necked animals as hosts  :) )


here is a companion : the flamingo :





a giraffe is just following, most obviously

And Pr Darwin would have approved: the long neck of the giraffe provide a better ground clearance thus adaptive advantage...

There's something about that rotor-assisted giraffe that just gets me. Not only is it amusing, but also very well balanced!

Eric, be careful: here in France, you may be sent to jail for lack of industrial patriotism... if you had done that hilarious knot on a (ridiculous) US rocket, you would have got a honour medal, but for a proud Arianne, you may be condemned... ;)
