Wow how wonderful! These models are works of art!

I love 'em all but by far, my favorite is the one with the cool spats.

The word "lure" is so uncommon I had to ask Google Translate help... And yes, Ericr, father was saying your models look like "leurres de pêche" for the fishes thinking "here are new friends" before being caught and moved in the sky...
Thanks father, you are a pleasant English teacher :)

thank you all for your appreciation !  :D

dinosaurs certainly have potential : try it out !

I used not only fish, but also various figurines : I can post more soon

fish have a quite natural hydro/aerodynamic shape, like this whale, combined with a Beriev Be-6

Fishing is big business where I live.  I've always thought it was like watching mold grow but my Dad loved it.  My policy is ,"if you catch it,kill it,and clean it, I will happily cook it for you."  So , what do you call those ,alternatives to live bait ?  Or is it one of those terms that "don't translate" well ?   I've taught classes in many things,but this is the first time I've ever "taught English" before !  I hope you guys had as good a laugh as I just did.  BTW, I was not saying anything bad about your builds. In fact, I must say I like the Whale-of-a-plane the best of all !

Combining a Beriev with that whale was truly inspired!

You've got a most unique perspective on the hobby!
