Oh would you look at that, it's The Sky Crawlers.
I'm embarassed to say that of all Sky Crawlers' pushers I can't remember anything like that.
Well, they're not the *exact* same planes. But advanced contra-rotating pusher fighters and massive flying wing bombers? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=llqoqei-k1Y
But of course!
The Fantasy Fighter reminds me very much of the playable "Pulse Jet Prototype" in the old PS2 game Sky Odyssey - http://origin-images.rcuniverse.com/forum/upfiles/463528/Us54008.jpg - and the German Focke-Wulf Flitzer design: http://www.luft46.com/fw/fwflitz.htmlSome of the pushers in that Sky Crawlers clip are obviously modelled after the Kyushu J7W - http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/8e/J7w.png.The Sky Crawlers looks really good, by the way. Would you gentlemen recommend it?
I second Bruce's sentiment. It definitely looks like the Pulse Jet.An interesting if somewhat bizarre blog. I like it :DKeep up the good work Dieselpunk,Sigmarmy WFB blogmy WFB Gallery
A different kind of beast, but beautiful. It's a long time since we've first met...
@Bruce: I'd highly recommend Sky Crawlers, but make sure you know what you're getting into. http://the-solitary-bee.blogspot.com/2010/06/sky-crawlers.html
In my mind probably the coolest twin boom aircraft of all time has got to be the Kalinin K7, and it's even got a pusher http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6C_8GGhY6kA
To Warren:In my personal Hall of Fame there are two ever-coolest twin-boomers:a) Lockheed P-38 Lightning;b) Caproni Ca.3 pusher-puller
No de Havilland Vampire or FW189?
To Jeremy:if you ask me, I love the good old Vampire (and Venom too). But Lightning is simply superb. And no, I've got no sympathy for "Uhu".
All very good, chaps, but what about the Savoia-Marchetti S.55?
To Bruce:It's more than just an aircraft. It's a modern Columbus' ship. It's Balbo!
Another god one is the Northrop Black Widow. Or how about the McDonnell XV-1 Convertiplane.
Not forgetting the Northrop F-15 Reporter (a development of the Black Widow) and the ill-fated Hughes XF-11.
...brb, playing Secret Weapons over Normandy again.
Dear Lord_k, your guests simply shocked by the beautiful picture and happily recall other beautiful aircraft. Why?
