Again, you have managed to combine bits to create something that looks appropriate.

One of my favorite permutations of yours yet, eric!

I especially enjoy how the landing gear sponsons almost give it a biplane look.

Once again, red was an outstanding primary color choice!

Hmmm, combining an HH-53 with an A-3?  Nah, I don't you need to worry about becoming too predictable  ;)

These have been great combinations! Who knew the Skywarrior would go so well with helicopters and WWII german transports!

Definitely a different, but surprisingly harmonious, look and blending.
