Feature of the B-35 and B-49 is 1/72 kits are not plagued with any issues that were in 1/1 builds.  ;)

Given the available kits, it would be expensive, but I could see operational CA-15s as part of this scenario.  Wonder if they would switch to a five-bladed prop or a contra-prop set up to take full advantage of the Griffon's power?  My own take would be the five-bladed prop as it make for a more robust gear case.

Just realized recent Saucer Jet fits Allies '46.  One kind of direction to go for a build.

Says '45 but close enough and still hopefully inspirational:

Another slightly off on the date though still hopefully inspirational:



BTW, this is actually based upon real world plans:

Something a little different...though possibly inspiring in more than one way:

Mustn't forget Supermarine's Jetfire (or Spitfire F.Mk 25)

What if MiG-15 without german contribution (swept wings)




This looks like a logical development from the Mig-9. So I guess it fall into the sequence as a Mig 11 or Mig 13.

Alligator with Bofors similar to that used by the French in Indochina.

Gotta love those Canada B-36s. :-*
Ideal cool scheme on cool aircraft.  8)
Such a large aircraft to have kept their service so hush-hush.  Another research challenge to piece together service history.

Once I get my MB6 project completed, it will go nicely with this I built some years ago, a Hawker Tempest Mk.VII (P.1027)

Oceania has always been at odds with Eastasia and Eurasia... Something to also consider is the world at war as described in Orwell's 1984 (published June,1949).
