Love the SR-71, the bird combos are great and give me all kinds of science fiction fighter ideas!!  :)  (and love the Tomcat too  ;) )

I have several of those too, bought up the last ones to be imported to my country :D  Didn't get the ant tho ::)

Also have the AMT giant Preying Mantis - might try & hunt down their giant spider & scorpion ... but I have a few of the real ones of those here.

hybrid aircraft/other objects ... Re: hybrid aircraft/animals

another form of hybrids, still involving aircraft.
The story of how it came about is that I used an old 1/100 B727 from East-Germany I had to make a flying boat with a 1/72 hull, described elsewhere on this forum, and then I remembered I wanted to make a B727 in that scale (because it's the biggest available in injection plastic I think) with the famour Calder Branniff livery, so I had to find another one. And then on ebay I found a lot wih two of them, plus two Tu-20 Bear at the same 1/100 scale, quite large.
And I had been considering putting a water tap at the nose of an aircraft for quite some time (why? ... well ... I don't quite know ... but it does have a look, I think).

So here it is, in red :

Cloud seeding is one thing but this is some truly over-the-top rainmaking!

Somehow it just works. Well done!

I can just see it flying with a really big hose attached to direct the fuel to the proper open tank (gotta be a side-opening cap on the tanks, fore or aft hinged would be a pain to open or close in flight.

I can just see a sprinkler, or shower head, nozzle on it for forest fire fighting or rain making.
