Some "What-If" inspiration

Post by iainpeden »

I came across these a while ago; I do like the RN S-3s on page 3.

Any of the Vikings are nice. The Finnish Viggen isn't bad either.

How about having this as a GB category ?
Could be quite interesting.

Good idea Scott but I wish there were some "cheap" 1/144 Vikings available.

Now, im not really...... sorry wasnt into Whifery until i bought a Hobbyboss A-10B and that ended up as a Whif. Now that ive seen this, i have an F-20 and X-29 that are screaming at me for this.

So bring on the GB!

Yep a 1/72 whif would be good,
The theme could be one of these:

- the aircraft I wish my airforce had! Modern ( easy for and Irish person)
- captured aircraft - ww2 (perhaps ones that were never photographed)
- aircraft that never made it into service, what they would have looked like.
- retired aircraft in modern schemes.

I dunno sounds like fun

Summat a little different.....I added a few bits to an FGR2 model for the Strike Fighters sim.......closed off the rear pit, added a pair of Harrier gun pods & other "stuff".
Might make an intresting "What if" model.

Sundowner _-do like the Phantom - but to be picky (and admittedly after only a quick check) XV431 never served with 2 squadron. (The art of a successful lie, apparently, is to get as close to the truth as possible.)
