Unique and not unattractive.  What's the source of the cockpit and forward fuselage?

Camel built by a legislative committee.

*grin* Put an ALQ-99 pod on the inner wing pylons and it would clearly be able to apply to the Benevolent and Protective Order of Old Crows (EWO's).

Beautiful!!  It would fit right in with a number of movie monsters - and look more plausible than several of them.

Very attractive submersible vehicle; I can just see it being operated "wet" by either beings in breathing gear or being that breath water.  The number of tentacles is adequate for stability and locomotion without being too many to get in the way.

Yes, this flying tractor seems designed by Antonov for Soviet farms, as civilian derivative of the flying tank... ;)

Eric, I  was missing from BTP for a long time, I have found so many fantastic ew creations of yours! I can't decide which ones are my preferred but the camel tractor and the octopus series appear very "realistic"...

Great works and fantasy as usual!
