Turbojet in the fuselage to get the thing up to height and speed - and ramjets in the wings for high speed?
Nice research plane! :)

some aircraft have a snoot, nearly a face of a cat or a dog, and I had to try that ;
plus, it helps me finally using bits and pieces in my stash/scrap box

The space shuttle with a cat





the same shuttle (same scale, that is), but with a dog :





or another cat with a B-17 (1/48) :





or yet another cat, a bit bigger, with a Victor :

photobucket change Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

Hi all

photobucket just changed its behavior, and does not show my pictures any more.
Maybe I missed an annoucement but I am surprised.

Another problem is that I don't manage to access my account : even when I ask for a password change I don't get the email, even in my spam.

I am looking for alternative solutions to continue posting pictures.

Hi eric. I'm sorry to hear you're one of the Photobucket victims.

I've started looking for new photo hosting and while I haven't used this yet, I've heard good things about them:

imgur.com

Best of luck!

clarinet & b-17, yellow Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

so, let's go back to business, now that imgur has offered hospitality

still under the impression of this record cover :



I had a try at a clarinet, with a 1/72 B-17 this time :





in yellow (from a spray can : smoother result)

oh, and the (toy) clarinet still is functional
