Wellcrum?

 ;D  Fulington?  I'd love to see that one without its fabric covering, exposing the geodesic construction of those twin tails  :smiley:

Love the red one, very nice lines  :-*

The yellow one has a cartoony feel to it but a clever kitbash nonetheless

Nice one

Fine eye/taste for what changes to make.  These two and prior configurations impress me.  :smiley:

While we've got many flavors of crazy 'round these parts, eric's version is one of my favorite.

His knack for choosing the best primary color is eerily unerring. Sometimes I wish he'd host a symposium on it or something.

I like the red one best, but they're all grand and done in that inimitable style we enjoy.

Veltro K-C.205 tanker, blue : hybrid aircraft/animals e.a.
« Reply #1665 on: August 28, 2019, 07:42:08 PM »

I had this 1/32 Veltro for quite a long time, and suddenly knew how to use it
to make it a buddy-refuelling aircraft (with a boom from a KC-97)





the arrangement is slightly asymetric, because of the tail wheel, but nothing is perfect  ;)

I have to say that the 48th scale wings mated to the C-135 fuselage do work well in appearance and fit.  Is that the 1:72nd scale C-135 kit from Italeri/AMT-Ertl?

I can only concur with my esteemed colleagues here and add that my mom would've congratulated you on the magnificent color choice as well.
