I like your four-engine Hawkeye.


Some neat ideas.  Nice work


Brilliant stuff!  :) Really like the Yukikaze-Hornet!


Love that 4 engined stretched Hawkeye! :)


Some 1/350 madness:
They say "Madness is closed to Genius"... According to me, these models of yours are more genious than mad... ;)


funny how the small scale seems to open up possibilities!
lovely inspiration here


:)  Love your work!



Thanks guys :)


I like your four-engine Hawkeye.  Have you considered applying that same concept to the C-2 Greyhound?  :)


Actually I wanted to stretch a c-2 in the first place, but it has a fat butt - so there would be a lot of work involed:


The VTOLs look a bit like Grumman Model 698:


That is no coincidence

And here's some more:

B-25/S-3 wingswap:


Su-25 intermeshing rotor attack chopper:



Airborne seaRAM:




Harrier Bomber:



Su-25 based attack jet (based on the obscure Avenger II from Macross) with a full carpet bombing load of SDBs. I wish they made a 2 seater su-25 in 1/144 or 1/72, I really want to build a bigger one of these:


Vigilante based interceptor:



VTOL F-18 attacker:


These two are prototypes of AEW aircraft with smaller wingspans to operate off small aircraft carriers.

Tandem wing:


Based on the Hs.125 AEW concept:


And this one was just for fun:

ALL of them are located in the range between marvelous and genius! :-*
My very favorites are the Harrier twin-boomer and the very last twin-boomer (on which basis?) :-* :-*
I forgot to say something: :-* :-* :-* :-*

Better and better! :-* :-* :-* :-* :-*!!!!!!

I plan to present it on my site about asymmetric aircraft, as this seems to be the very first asymmetric aircraft with tilting fins ever, no? ??? ;)

2-seat Su-25's are available from Art Model and, if memory serves me correctly, other companies, too.  I know I've seen the Art Model ones for sale recently.

Next up: 1/144 Har-nado



I kind of flubbed the nozzles because getting the right position would have required extensive rework of the rear fuselage.

And work has started on my Joint strike harrier idea from the VTOL GB:

Hmmmm... I probably should have planned a bit before ripping it apart, oh well.

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
