Just in case you haven't checked out the Allies '46 GB, here's a couple of pics of my entry, something I call the Lockheed YP-78 Super Star Jet.





You can see more and read the silly story Here.

A sad story of inflation and deflation.  But the YP-78 is awesome Brian. You builds always float above the rest of us.
Work in progress ::

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

Give it a rest Brian,  you keep turning out fab stuff like this with the secret history and make the rest of us look like amateurs.  Another superb build and back story.
I May have to report you to the moderators for being too good, that'll stop yer... oh, forgot, that won't work will it!

Oh well, in that case,   YAY, another bril build from Brian da Basher, wotaguy.

 :icon_alabanza: :icon_alabanza: :icon_alabanza: ;)
If I don't plan it, it can't go wrong!

If it's great, I did it. If it's naff, I found it.

Brian that is just a great concept and tribute to the 133.  Very fun to see and a great storyline as well.  This absolutely made my day  :smiley:

Does anyone kit the 133?  Perhaps Anigrand has or plans to.

Thanks for sharing,
Kem
