I usually don't post these kinds of photos but I thought some may be interested in the subject. I never thought of the Chinese Civil War as a "What if?" subject. I think I may have to get some aircraft and do them up in similar markings. Robert

Now, that is some hilariously preposterous text.

I'm glad you thought it was "hilarious". IMO most "What ifs?" are. What part did you find the most "hilarious"? Robert

Gotta say, I like the Yak-15 the best. Wonder if there are any left (or plans for them)?

The Airacomet is not really sleek, and the Me262 (excuse me, J8N4 Kikka) is kinda plain.

Imperial Japan surviving WW2.

The P-59 and Kikka being considered adequate fighter aircraft by pretty much anyone, ever.

The US caring enough about Chiang to support him with front-line equipment in significant numbers.

Manchuria being able to resist Soviet invasion for more than 15 minutes.

That'll do for now.

The P-59 wasn't a "Frontline" aircraft for sure wink. The US did supply Nationalist China with other frontline aircraft including the 102 P-47s and some P-51s during and just after WWII and starting in 1954 they did get some surplus F-86s and used those quite well in combat with PLAAF Mig-15s and 17s.All the rest is what a "What If?" is all about grin. The aircraft pictured on the site just takes that up a notch lol. Robert

"However, everyone seems to overlook China, be it the Nationalist Republic of China or the Communist People's Republic of China. Thus, we chose the Gloster CXP-1001 for IRMA Kit No.1ŠSMŽTM in part because there have been numerous requests for this aircraft and in our research we discovered that the Chinese government did participate in the design of this jet to be built and serve specifically in China as early as 1946."

I never realized that the P-59 was so big. Or were the others that small? Robert
