I keep imagining the glass-nosed (headed?) fish as a stealth spy submarine. Put N. Korean markings and a periscope on it and it'd be ready for some nefarious mission.

Well that's a real "Jules Verne-ish" build, with some copper and bronze paint and some rivets here and there would be a great Steampunk submarine...
Thanks for being a cointinuous source of inspiration Eric!
I agree with the above on all points.  That Arado looks to have quite a sensor fit, too.  I'll bet that's the fastest any form of turtle has moved.

That's an attractive and unique look.  It's well planned, too, since the plane of the center propeller is behind the plane of the other two propellers and you won't get them interfering with each other.

Slap some red DHL markings on that Otter with the Harrier bits and you would have a rather interesting delivery vehicle. :)

Seconded!!  Beautiful work on both of them.  Both look to be great aircraft for stol operations.

Actually, that could be fun:  a Piggy bank with the nose, wings and tail from an F-111.
