These are wild! I really like them because its pretty rare to find a model of an animal airplane mix, no I get to see a lot more

... so are we ever going to get to see red, yellow, blue tiger stripes or camouflage?
For some reason, that last line makes me think of F11F-1 wings, and other bits, mated to a Bengal tiger.

the camouflage pattern is inspired by a dutch Fokker seaplane of the 30s : the black and white photograph did not exclude this interpretation ...

ans I had in mind a picture I saw somewhere on the net :

Not only are your talent and skill completely off the charts, but your sense of humor is a delight as well!

Outstanding!!!

You don't think "outside-the-box". You must think "outside-the-zoo". I admire the creativity of your art. That and the fact that the rivet counters can't touch you.

Well done, sir!

We now see the real reason airports have bird scarers, its to protect the virtue of all the aeroplanes now we can see what happens when they are left un supervised.
