... this could be an icon for "pipe dream"?

 ;D

I didn't know that expressions, but google tells me :

pipe dream
noun: pipe dream; plural noun: pipe dreams; noun: pipedream; plural noun: pipedreams
    an unattainable or fanciful hope or scheme.
    "free trade in international aviation will remain a pipe dream"

which is essentially another definition of Whiff, isn't it?  ;)

more bananas :

a 1/28 Sopwith Camel (I am busy lowering my stash level ...)
and a banana, because I wanted to see how it could look as a biplane

This is very logical (thus perfect): at a time when aerodynamics was not mandatory, a curved fuselage was very possible... ;)

the other half of the 1/28 Camel had to have a life, and in my qtash I had this Revell wooden kit of da Vinci designed wings for manned flight :

Perfect combo of those two kits.
Build flows together so well. :)

Could this be the first "Bat Plane" ?
Before Batman switched to a jet.

That was my first thought too!

Would look great in black. Looks very appealing in blue!

thanks all!


it does look a bit like a Batman thing indeed  ;)
but da Vinci's design predates the comics quite a bit  ;D

I had one B727 in 1/100 from VEB/Plasticart left, and I used the fuselage and wings for something else (coming soon), so here I was with the extremities ... and then  I remembered about a picture seen on the internet (but where?) and did this :







the single wheel gives a certain impression of lightness, a bit like for a half P-38 (laterally) I did some years ago ...

It reminds me of the fun ships on Futurama! Very cool.

Bat plane is a beautiful thing :-*
