It is not ME, it is an evil part in "my" brains (stranger brains in my head), that I try to fight but which still asks silly questions, sorry... ;)

One day I stumbled upon this :

and liked it so I have a turn using a pair of 1/43 2cv's :





and only a bit too late I thought of the yin yang possibility :I might try and find a pair of Beetles after all someday ...

Very nice!
while... mechanically, how is it working? When the red component drives forward, should the yellow gear be set in reverse ("marche arrière" in French)?

I think I mentioned this LP cover to you come time ago :



I like this kind of chance meetings, so I had a try at it with a plastic gun, and wings from a Vigilante kit wreck :

Bleriot 125 / DHC twin fuselage, red Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

I recently discovered the existence of the quite extraordinary Bleriot 125 :



and was driven to try out a canadian version (as if the backup story was that the Bleriot inc. engineer responsible for that design had emigrated to Canada, joined DHC, and reactivated the concept using material existing there) :





note the slight nose asymetry ase well   ;D

Brilliant! Love your push-pull Beaver pod and the long and short Twotter noses  ;D

more LP-cover inspiration from the 70s :

I showed you that one already in the past



it was haunting me for some time, because there are ideas there that are just too beautiful not to try them ;
and I finally got the ingredients together, and then found the guts to go at it  ;) :
