I was surfing some websites and found some interesting stuff.
--a twin engine Beech T34 ?
--a Grumman Bearcat with Me 262 engines?
-- a radial engine Mustang?
--a turbo-prop B25?

might be a new trend, Twilight Zone Scale?

Often thought of doing that alteration with the plastic models.

Re: Seriously outside the box scale

Thats really cool.
I know there was a proposed variant of the Hawker Hurricane that was to use the Bristol Hercules engine. There was also an idea to power some Lancasters with Bristol Hercules engines just like the Halifax. There were versions of the Halifax powered by Merlins and others with the Hercules.From what I understand, those were some of many ideas thought up in case the supply of Merlins couldnt keep up with the demand. That may also explain the radial powered Mustang. I can only imagine how many ideas ended up in the waste basket compared to the ones we actually heard about.

Re: Seriously outside the box scale

Could be wrong but didn't the Lancaster airframe have radials at one point but not sure if they called it a Lancaster or not . Radials were pretty good fuel hogs plus Americans did not favour liquid fuelled engines because it was game over if the radiators got shot or any of the many coolant lines broke , it was pretty much game over. They preferred and developed many version of the radial air cooled engines that could take a beating.

How about a Turbo prop mustang ? Now that would be a hoot !

Re: Seriously outside the box scale

Lancaster B MkII with Bristol Hercules engines. There was at least one squadron of them and an Armourer from Winnipeg scratch built a fiberglass scale model of "his" plane after the war.

I ended up with it but will never fly it. Too much sentimental value.

Eight foot wingspan.

Re: Seriously outside the box scale

I love warbirds and I especially love the rare ones. I really enjoyed the first post on this thread- some really unique models that would be really cool to see in the form of an RC model.

Just a note- anyone else noticed how "blah" the radial engined mustang (trailblazer) looks without its trademark underbelly air-scoop?

Re: Seriously outside the box scale

Lancastrian had turboprops, as was the Piper PA-48 Enforcer variant of the Mustang.

One I hope to never see in any form, real or R/C

PL-12 Airtruk

ps. That twin Beech sure must have had some short props!

Re: Seriously outside the box scale

I stand to be corrected but the Lancastrians that flew on regular routes with the airlines that used them (Air Canada) and others flew with only Merlin engines, some Merlin's were built by Packard. A few Lanastrians flew as test beds for turbo prop and jet engines . Of th 4 engines 2 were Merins and the other 2 were the other ones they were testing.
