At first I thought this was the MK. XIII anti-personnel log.   ;D

Nah, that was banned under the Geneva Conventions because of its splinters ;D

My that looks familiar ;):

Except that I called mine the DAP N-7 Wandabaa (aboriginal for Eaglehawk).  I certainly wouldn't have thought of the practice torpedoes though - great idea! :)

yes, Greg,
               I had to copy your idea of the Wandabaa but the line-drawing wasn't clean enough so I re-did it from scratch using a couple of your others & re-scaleing several parts ----- your ideas are such an inspiration !! :)

"Fairey Penguin" seemed just sooo right for mine 8)

The inline-engined Karas idea is awesome!  :)
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?

Japan fights on the British Side during WWII ...



Russia is allied with Germany & Italy ...


As they have many lakes in the mountainous areas, neutral Switzerland purchased fifty A6M2n "Rufe" floatplanes as part of their air-interception force to counter the many German & Russian "strays" over their territory.  During the war they forced down 157 German, 62 Russian and (late in the war) 20 Allied aircraft that drifted, either intentionally or by accident, over Switzerland.

In 1945 the French company of Sud-Est Aviation joined with the American Convair Aviation Co. to produce & market a fast private / corporate transport based on the captured Dornier Do-335 design.  The result was the Sud-Est / Convair 835 "Libelle".  It would seat 10 passengers plus two pilots -- a freight version was also offered to Wells Fargo & Western Union for shipment of valuables, documents etc.

Convair 835 private aircraft belonging to GM for transport of executives around their branches/ factories.


What other company schemes ??  What 1940s/50s movie-stars in Hollywood would have one of these ??
Suggestions for colour schemes ??

1970 and the far right religious movements in the US succeed in lobbying for expanded censorship laws.  Entrepreneur Hugh Heffner now finds it totally impossible to deliver his magazine, even in plain brown wrappers, through the regular postal system.  Special FBI agents intercept over 2000 private-company delivery trucks on the interstate highways every day searching for illegal publications & products but in short time the usual underground black-market system sees this material regularly available, tho through different outlets than in the past.

The right-wing parliament of Margaret Thatcher, supported by the Mary Whitehouse organisation, also adopts almost as strict legislation for Britain.
To obviate this blockage of his empire, Mr Heffner institutes his own international fast-delivery service.  Buying six surplus B-58 bombers he converts them for cargo - mainly for his own magazines but also some international & diplomatic mail.  Banned from landing at Heathrow Airport, he is granted covert landing-rights at the US Greenham Common Airbase.

While the Sonic Bunnies deliver Playboy & Hustler magazine to Britain & other Commonwealth countries, Larry Flint obtains the US military-mail contract & his aircraft delivers his magazine, Playboy and priority-mail to troops on military bases in Vietnam.

Definitely a different look.  How about an earlier prototype with engine installations similar to the earliest Bf109s?
