The preceding Yellow and Blue numbers demonstrate that new species of "flying fish" are continually being found.  Beautiful work on them and the red one before them.

I love how the yellow fish's tail has the same sweep angle as the P-61 fins! Great stuff  :)

Yak-15 & trumpet, guitar, syringue Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

There seems to reign a kind of Yak frenzy around here, and it just happens I treated a few Yak-15s
(the  1/72 PM kit, a nice basis for this kind of exercice I would say  ;), I once got half a dozen for very cheap)

I am still fascinated by this record cover



I even bought the LP, just to see it (the music is kind of fun too, actually)

so here is the trumpet Yak-15 :





and the guitar Yak-15 :





and then, something completely different, the syringe Yak-15 (from an used anti-flu vaccine) :

Ericr, I have a question about your syringe Yak-15: when the piston goes forward, what happens to the tail ? either:
1- it moves forward also, because solidly attached to the piston;
or
2- it stays at the same place (hold by a little boom at the center of the moving piston, scale 1 I mean, for "Real").
Which one? 1 or 2? ??? :)

I'd vote for #2.  It would take some careful structural design, but it's doable.  The model would need some tweaking to show this properly.

It is funny that the flower has not much colour but the bees are very colourful! Great!
