Re: Cantwell Concept Y Wing reference thread

Is this how the model sits now...with a box canopy, or does it have the Spitfire canopy now....or were there two models built?

Re: Cantwell Concept Y Wing reference thread

Cylinder head cover from the ME109 is also used on the engines, its below the Hurricane part......looks to be grey in color there?

Engine thrusters do appear to be F1 rims.....conical type.

Forward section looks to be two LM Garage doors, probably from the 1/48th Revell kit.

Re: Cantwell Concept Y Wing reference thread

Thats a great pic Lee. Thanks for the hint too, i got it....or them. Good input too. If Maths gives me permission to , i will use his image. I will send him an email.

The front engine covers look like easter eggs .

If anyone has Hi Res images that can't be shown but can be butchered for this let me know.

ZK,
it's a great idea to do these threads in parallel because Colin may have used the same kits. Math's pic is new to me :thumbsup

The pics are mine - you're welcome to use them. I commissioned them from a guy in Singapore; took them at the exhibit a few years ago.

Here's a link to the originals - there's also a small (so-so) gallery of the yellow Y too...

enjoy

On the starboard side under the hurricane engine part is the airfix bf 109 cockpit interior side panel.
yeah the "feet" are life boats, perhaps from the blue devil?
