Welcome to Beyond the Sprues and that's a mighty fine introduction, roast!

By the way, we've got a Spanish Civil War GB coming up in December and I think if you wanted to join in the fun, your art would be appreciated.

I have a couple of aircraft dating from that era (and regardless of faction) in my folders, so I wouldn't mind joining in. In the meanwhile, here's an assortment of depictions that I don't mind sharing.

Those are great, roast! I especially like the P-36/Hawk-75 and Italy may be one of the few European nations not to fly the type.

Great stuff and always a treat to see your work!

Fantastic.

Really love the Japanese Mistel.  Always had plans to build something similar using a Ki-43 and a Ki-21, but like most projects I never got round to it!

Cheers

The Romanian one is wonderfully colorful!

That scheme compliments it nicely.

It is indeed! I like the Turkish Mk.Vc too. Of course, the RW Turks had Mk.Vbs ... but uglified with Rootes dust filters. I like yours much better  :smiley:

Nice idea of the RAAF P-63.  Often an overlooked aircraft too, despite some 3303 being built.  Unfortunately for it, it like others were just totally outclassed by the superlative P-51.

P-63A
Maximum speed: 410 mph (660 km/h) at 25,000 ft (7,620 m)
Range: 450 mi[53] (725 km)
Service ceiling: 43,000 ft (13,100 m)
Rate of climb: 2,500 ft/min (12.7 m/s)
Wing loading: 35.48 lb/sq ft (173.91 kg/m²)
Armament:
1× 37 mm M4/M10 cannon firing through the propeller hub.
4× 0.50 in (12.7mm) M2 Browning machine guns (two synchronized in the nose, two in the wings)
Bombs: 1,500 lb (680 kg) bomb load on wing and fuselage
P-51D
Maximum speed: 440 mph (708 km/h, 383 kn)
Range: 1,650 mi (2,656 km, 1,434 nmi) with external tanks
Service ceiling: 41,900 ft (12,800 m)
Rate of climb: 3,200 ft/min (16.3 m/s)
Wing loading: 39 lb/sq ft (192 kg/m2)
Armament:
Guns: 6 × 0.50 caliber (12.7mm) AN/M2 Browning machine guns with 1,840 total rounds
Bombs: 1,000 pounds (450 kg) total on two wing hardpoints
Each hardpoint: 1 × 100 pounds (45 kg) bomb, 1 × 250 pounds (110 kg) bomb or 1 × 500 pounds (230 kg) bomb)

Another interesting whiff might be a Nth Korean one.  After all, the USSR was the biggest user with some 1000+ still in service after the war.  It even got a NATO reporting name of "Fred". One could easily see some being passed to the nth Koreans.
All hail the God of Frustration!!!
