I like the Jumo engined 109, Se˝or Ysi. It looks like it belongs there.

This is probably a contrarian view, but try cutting down the fin & rudder just a little bit. I did this on a 109 model a while back and it surprised me how rakish it looked.

You never fail to get me thinking.

With that larger nose area, you are going to need a corresponding larger fin and rudder area.  I would go with the larger fin and rudder from the very late model Bf109s (G-14 and K) and possibly add a dorsal fillet to the front of the fin.  Certainly the dorsal fillet on the P-51 proved such can be rakish.

I dislike Centauro's canopy. So, what do you prefer?

They both have their good and bad points.  From aesthetics, I think the upper one looks better.  What I'd like to see is a Centauro with a clear rear canopy like that of the Re.2000 prototype and keeping it's stock hood and windscreen.

There's something very appealing about that P-38 Allison on a Zeke.

I'd have never thought of it. What a great concept!

The was also the Real World Fiat G.59 with a sliding bubble canopy.

Wow is that P-38 Folgore sweet!

Absolutely inspired thinking changing the engines like that.

Very well done!

Dagnabbit I had plans for an FW engined Mustang too!

I gotta be quicker about gettin' off the dime.  :(

Great stuff! I especially like that you kept that famous P-51 scheme all the way through.
