  3. Where do you find these?! Great looking, Matija!

  4. thank you gentlemen.
    @mikegolf they come to me gradually, start with one idea, end up with another

  5. Great model, Matija. Did these actually exist or is it hypothetical? I think hypothetical models are cool because they let us use our imagination and we get to build outside the constraints of what really existed.

    • @gblair its all hypothetical and i agree with you. Thats the reason i stopped making regular models, and the feeling of satisfaction when you can touch something that only existed in your mind.

  6. Great idea and model. You obviously have a very fertile imagination.

  7. Very creative model Matija, quite a good looking what if aircraft
