My first contribution

Hi to all!

I've been a member for a few years but, except for giving my opinion and admiration at the awesome work you guys do, have never posted anything. So here are a few examples. I know I have a long way to go in terms of factual presition, but I really ejoy doing "What If's" and the mental storyline that goes with them. So take it easy, enjoy and coming soon:

-Vichy France Aeronaval F6F-6, Defender of the Suez
-Nazi Germany Kriegsmarine's F4U-5KM, Korean War contribution
-Fuerza Aerea Argentina JF-17C, F.A.A. getting back to Business

  1. Boy...that thing would really haul butt with that prop chopping through the air, huh?

  2. A real windmill, tork was awful! ?

  3. Good effort, Roberto.

  4. Good beginning, keep on ! Don't forget, efforts are worth it.

  5. Nice what if's. Look forward to seeing more, and welcome.

  6. Very interesting. nice work.

  7. Roberto, outstanding alternative universe stuff! I remember Jimmy Dolittles comment when some reporter asked him if he'd fly the GeeBee again? He said once was enough. I love the first one, the prop would scare me to death immobile, much less turning. Torque you right into the ground!
    Great flights of fancy, every one.

  8. Roberto, ever read Harry Turtledoves "The War that came early" series?
    Chamberlain defies Hitler at Munich, and the war starts. The interesting part is the shifting alliances, though I don't want to spoil it for you. His other series where the South wins the Civil War, and then there's a rematch with nukes i also interesting, in a scary way.

    • Thanks for the recomendations. Will definitely look them up. Maybe some day I'll publish my "What Ifs" story lines. If you get an idea for one, let me know. I might be able to work on it or get you a story line for proyect!

  9. Welcome aboard. I really like the Luftwaffe Gee Bee...

  10. Thanks to everyone for your coments on my crazy builds. Not only did I ejoy building then, but I loved all your responses. Thanks for making me part of a truly special community. P.S. My Wife is truly ecstatic with the fact that I showed off something I built. That has something to do with the giant stash of unbuilt stuff I have (thanks eBay)! ?

  11. Welcome! Imagination is what fuels the hobby! Thanks for bringing yours to life.

  12. Lovely builds and funny !

  13. Looks great, Roberto, what's next?
