Default Fokker F100 Custom - what was I thinking?

Received a 1/200 US Air F100 in a multiple-plane trade and while it was in the box it had deteriorated badly. So, I decided to save it with a custom job. Could not find anything I liked for a custom on the Google machine or Airliners.net so I just winged it and went with what came to mind as I decaled. I have no ties to and very little knowledge of the Luftwaffe but this is the end phantom Luftwaffe F100.

You do have imagination! It turned out nice, I think.
Fokker would have been more then happy to deliver some F100's to the Luftwaffe back in the days.

Reminds me of the old German Airforce colors. Nicely done.

Nice a military F100. Would have been great.

Wunderbare

Surprised you didn't fancy doing a fantasy US Navy transport to go with your other models. Had it been a short fuselage, you could have
done the proposed US Navy Carrier On-board Delivery version with the cargo door, possibly RR Tays, folding wings, extended nose gear &
arrester hook. Apparently Fokker went as far as landing the standard F.28 on a simulated carrier deck.

One for the future perhaps

Nice "experimental" livery! When I had an extra MD-87 from the Hasegawa boxing of MD-80/87, I made a fictional Canadian Forces lightening stripe "Combi Special" version with extra decals in my spares pile...
Unfortunately, I eventually cut that one up to make more MD-80s...
