keep doing them, i have a suggestion, you should fuse a MH-53 with an AH-64's weapon system

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...
Great work, Stéphane! I also like how you can work with black-and-white images and add all of those colors with ease. Keep it up!
Thanks, Stingray! But actually in this case the original photo of the XC-142 was in color...
Oh, I see! Well, the underside of the fuselage sort of gave the impression of a grayscale image. Must be the resolution.
This is very good!
Thanks, Sarah and Stingray!!! Glad you guys like it.
What if Bell/Boeing's V-22 had not been the first operational VTOL? What if Boeing had teamed up with Learjet instead to offer an heir to the old X-19 concept and make it work as a liaison/VIP transport? This is what the fake advertisement above is all about.Original picture can be seen here for comparison: [link]

Incredible!!! This is the most impressive of all, I think.
Thanks Stingray! I hope other members will like it too!
Today, I took one of the most ungainly aircraft ever, the Fiat 7002 helicopter, and decided to turn into an even greater monstrosity!!Introducing... two exclusive documents on the Fiat 7500 « Treno Volante » or « Flying Train »... Scary, eh?
Correction, THIS is the most impressive! Sincerely epic work!!
Thanks, Sting! Hope you will enjoy this one: here's the Shorts/Sikorsky S-900 Heli Skyvan, a rotorcraft derivative of the famed Shorts 330/360 Skyvan series.
And as a little extra, the General Electric XH-14A...
I think the Flettner Fl 339 might have looked great if built. In the following I imagined that General Electric had received the plans from the U.S. government and been given a contract for two prototypes (serials 49-2020 and -2021) as the XH-14A (leaving "XR-14/XH-14" aside because it had been allocated to the unbuilt Firestone GA-50)...
Wonderful! The aerodynamics of the Shorts/Sikorsky S-900 are perfect, in which case I think this fictional design is the most believable. Bravo!
Amazing! Please keep making photo manipulations like these!

Another beautifully crafted work of art. Great job!
Thank you so much for the cool feedback, and welcome to the forum, SuperStallion! I'm glad you've enjoyed my work. If you're into more than just rotorcraft, I have hundreds of other imaginary aircraft online at http://bispro.deviantart.com/gallery/24200217
Stéphane, thanks for the welcome, and thanks for sharing the link to your gallery. You have created many wonderful what-ifs, and I hope to see more in the future. Keep up the good work.
Really cool art, Stargazer! Great Deviant Art gallery too.
Thanks folks for the great encouragements!
Flyboy, please send me an e-mail or a private message and tell me what you're thinking of. If I find it feasible and interesting to do, no problem!
