Ursa_minor - 2009-05-05 Pretty awesome - this is from Gizmo, no? Regardless, quite a few of the designs they show flying are actually quite viable. For instance, there is a shot of the Stipa-Caproni haulin ass at one point.
kiint - 2009-05-05 yeah, I love that plane! and thanks to Ursa's handy link I got to read all about it:
Syd Midnight - 2009-05-06 I do get the feeling that a lot of this shit would get airborne if you put solid modern motors on it. Might not get very far tho.
The flying disc is awesome because that actually works. The US fighters to replace the P-51 were going to be flying discs until jets came along, and they decided to just put a jet engine in a P-51 instead. But we will have flying saucers YET.
