Very good, these are the first Mirages of the USAF, right? F-13A/B/C/D/E?

Good: with Copyright on the Mirage wing, Dassault would have got so many $/ billions... (and my France would have been rich, with less pressure on taxpayers?) ;)

Wow, that looks strangely plausible. I think you could do a "realistic" French one as part of their attack helicopter experiments in Algeria. I'd do it without the nose mounted engine and probably Corsair horizontal tail, as well, but I think that might almost work as a proto-Hind.

Cheers,

Logan

Interesting!!  Skip the engine and propeller up front and use the turboshaft version.  Be somewhat appropriate since at one time Vought and Sikorsky were a combined division of United Aircraft.

Neat!  :)

Would love to see Modelsvit scale-down their 1/72 Blinder to 1/144.

Your Aeroflot Tu-22 is just fantastic and very easy on the eyes as well, ysi!

Concur that there's not enough reasonably-priced, smaller scale kits of some of these subjects out there.

Well, this can be done in 1/144. With some scratch work.

Love the Aeroflot Tupolevs ... and that T-tailled Caravelle is rather tasty too!  :)

  Your B-24 airliner has a real grain of truth in it. Early B-24's were used as
unarmed transports called C-87's, and the British converted some of their
Avro Lancaster bombers into Lancastrian airliners in 1946-47.

I love this B-24 derivative killing nobody anymore (unless there is a crash...).
