France's space program seems to have run into budgetary cutbacks i see
Very colourful I must say, and unique
2 Reasons why a model is better than a wife:
1) A model doesn't get jealous when you look at another model
2) A model doesn't yell at you for spending money on another model

Of course, the 2cv having wheels and wings, you can drive and fly, no need of mother-ship. :)

you may remember the P38 interpretation as a Cerberus I made earlier :

Here is a kind of reverse experiment : a Cerberus with three PZL7 heads :

The colours are joyful and lovely while I am frightened by this animal-machine, why? ??? ;)

the head are on a flexible neck, so you can imagine them moving around  ;)

next time you'll have to motorize them so the props do spin & the "heads" move ;)

ah, motorizing 1/72 kits does require quite refined skills, doesn't it?

but the propellers can move, manually, and each can turn round ;
you better synchronize them, of course

A Cerberus evil monster with intermeshing propellers... this is like the best caricature of the Machine World ever made... Charlie Chaplin's spirit is not dead! Congratulations! ;)

Definitely one of the more imaginative creations to come along! I especially like how the engines mimic the growl of that mythical beast. I've got to tip my hat to your vision and creativity!

thanks a lot! your appreciation feeds my imagination  ;)

for the growl effect, I had initally thought of having three F86 Sabre (or Mig 15 of a mix of them), but in 1/72 they are too wide for the necks ... maybe next time I can try in 1/100? ;D

P38 and pencils (Saint Exupery) Re: hybrid aircraft/animals and others

Saint Exupery was the author who wrote "Le Petit Prince", and he made drawings too ;
he disappeared in a P38 in 1944.
This hybrid mixes a P38 with pencils :

Marvelous! I will have to draw this (with your name) on my fantasy-P38-drawings website! adding maybe a version with writing ink-feathers? ('plumes encre' would have said St-Exupery).
Thanks again for this invention of yours! :-* :-* :-*
