    I did NOT know that Israel considered for quite some time buying the J-29! :shock: Quite nice camouflage too....!

    Now, think that a "what if" group build is in the pipe soon....:oops::lol:

    I'll have to add a 1/48 J29 and the TSR-2 that Sweden was thinking of buying to my Christmas wish list for Santa this year!

    Sounds intersting Jan...the RAAF were going to buy the TSR-2 aswell, so there's another real possibility!

    What are the rules to the build?

    Sounds colourful! :D This one could maybe include the Luftwaffe '46 types (Ho IX etc..) ?

    Why not make it open? I'd suggest that the only constraints are that it should be plausible, rather than 'over the top' with 'hybrid' types. In other words, no cross between a Hunter and a Draken, for example. It would be nice if there were also 'believable' stories/scenarios behind the subject, such as the RAAF consiering the TSR 2, and 'what if' they had bought them, and so on.
    Count me in, as I've already got a couple of things on a list... RAF F5, Luftwaffe licence-built Zero, RAF F111 etc.
    Now, how do I obtain much more room in my house.......

    An Israeli B-17??? I've never heard of that one Paul! Have they modified the nose turret with some form of radar too?

    I like the idea as Terry laid out. I'll drop my Horten IX in if that's alright Jan.

    Hi Terry, the tail was removed by Israil censorship. By the way you might find this familiar.

    Think that they were looking at the Seversky P-66 and the PZL earlier among others....

    I do not have time at the moment to work on the Heavy Hitters GB so I am working on my "what if" I started this time last year. I pick up the Revell F4U, 1/48 scale, with folding wings after reading a thread about what if the Army used the F4U in Europe. Since I had a set of decals for a P-47, I thought why not. I do not any photos from the beginning of the build but I should have some to post next week. I pick the plane up at 50% off, $7.00. The kit is terrible as stated in other threads.

    Since this is ground based, I glued the wings down. One wing turned out well and the other was all messed up. I had to use putty and sand papper. What fun was that? The next step was the remove the tail hook. I inserted plastic in the tail and applied putty. After a little sanding and shaping, it looked ok. I filled the holes for the rockets but that did not turn out so well. I will have to go it again. I could see the holes after I applied the thin coat of white paint. The final bird will be painted as a member of the 61st FS, 56th FG. I hope to post pictures next week.
