When you hear “pusher canard” I’m sure a certain percentage of you would think “huh?”, the rest of you are plane geeks. This rear propeller (pusher) aircraft with front mounted elevator (canard) from builder Red Spacecat is ready for some serious sky warfare. With enough firepower to orbit Arnold Schwarzenegger, this looks ready for total sky domination.
Jon Hall is back with another gorgeous aircraft. This latest is clearly inspired by classic twin boom design, with dual props and a very centrally located cockpit. It's also armed to the teeth and combat ready. It features an opening cockpit, retractable landing gear and an unusual cowling using parts I honestly can't identify, adding even more intrigue. The color combination of sand blue, light grey and white accents is also really nice.
The description of this MOC by is so interesting I will let builder Dread Pirate Wesley speak for himself.
The Sopwith Camel is one of the most famous aircraft ever built. It holds a special place in history as the most successful allied aircraft of the Great War. It also as a unique distinction of having killed more of its own pilots than enemy aircraft did by virtue of its difficult handling characteristics in the hands of unskilled pilots. Still, the unstable flight characteristics made for an extremely agile fighter in the hands of a seasoned pilot.
Jon Hall is back with another brilliant aircraft. This time it's a dual prop fighter that packs a wallop, just look at the size of the cannon on the front of this thing! The color combinations, cockpit configuration, custom stickers and overall design make this a really appealing craft. Well, as long as you're not on the receiving end of that firepower.
Air power changed the face of war as we know it starting with WWI. Since then the world's superpowers have competed with each other to create the world's fastest and most maneuverable fighter jets to achieve air superiority over their enemies. While the United States has dominated in the development and production of fighters, Russia has never been that far behind. Development of the Su-30 may have began in communist Russia, but it wasn't officially put into service until 1996, years after the Soviet Union had been dissolved. New builder Tino Poutiainen has treated us with a detailed microscale version of the Su-30. Let us all hope that this is just the first in a series of unique airplane builds from him.
