Supposing Vought and Sikorsky had remained one entity well into the 1950s and early 1960s... They might have used the airframes of the cancelled XC-142A to produce a new helicopter type, the Vought-Sikorsky HH-12A Shrike...

  • More good stuff from a very talented artist. Can't wait to see your next creation. It would be so neat to have a book of all your creations, with a profile / 3 way view and the 'what if' story behind each one. (Mimikios)
  • I second the motion here, if you do ever collect all your photos here into a book, please do include me in consideration of a copy. I will happiply pay your cost for an edition! :) (dinobatfan)

I wish... :) Thank you so much! You know what, I thought about exactly the same thing actually... Who knows? Maybe one of these days... when I have enough material and matching text to go with it... That would be awesome, for sure! Meanwhile, there is this site, which is not so bad I hope!
