Those are some sweet little wonders and it's hard to pick a favorite.

I've got to admit though that upgraded C-130 is really growing on me.

Great stuff!

New project based on saab projekt 1825? (I think), light 2 seat attack jet. Used a shortened Mitsubishi F-1 fuselage.

Wow is that some great stuff!

I can't really pick a favorite, they all look so innovative to me.

You have an enviable imagination!

Thanks guys! :smiley:

Should be flown by USAF and USN.  Heck,,, the Army too.

Actually I am trying to think what colours to paint it. Although I do love my blue splinter camo, I'm trying to steer clear of it and mix it up a bit.
So current thoughts are:
RAF/RN green and grey stripey
US/Marines green and black/green and brown

Love them both! Any details of construction on these?

Tilt-rotor: Body is from a Harrier that had its engine removed and replaced with a styrene tube, wings are from an F-16 bulked up with some puty and the rotors are from a cheap non scale V-22 (same brand as the Tu-95). Engine nacelles are built from F-2/F-16 and Tornado fuel tanks - the back half of a Tornado fuel tank forms the main body, the nose forms the intake and the nacelle nose is the pointy end of the F-2 tank.

SAAB thing: shortened Mitsubishi F-1 fuselage (would have liked a T-2 for the clear double canopy), Tornado wings, F-16 tail fin AND RB-04's from Fox One.

Unless otherwise stated all builds are 1/144 scale.

Update time:

First of all, Thanks to those who gave input on my mig-41 for the GB. Unfortunately that project is on indefinite hold, as I had a lot of trouble trying to make it look right.

Should I put some missiles on it or leave it bare?

Try top one w/o missiles. Has fine lines as is.
Want to see how semi flying wing turns out.  Looks maybe 1/200.
Last two doing well.  Keep going.
