- Yes, I think I saw this.
- Holy shit.. The Aussies actually tried to do this? TIL.
- My memory is dim, but I think this is one of a number of "pre-photoshop" fake pics. Like the fairly famous one of the meteor flying through the hangar.
- Yes, you can tell the shopping by how much the tail of the A-4 is reduced in size compared to the front, which signifies that the original photo of the A-4 has it in a rather sharp angle to the viewer (foreshortened) - an angle that would have put either of its landing gears overboard if on a sub!

- You can tell it's photoshopped by the way it is!
- Thats pretty neat
- Need more info please, this is amazing

- That's the weirdest thing that I've seen today.
- Eh, there's weirder on the front page right now. But it's certainly the most awesome thing I've seen today.
- Bit early, isn't it? Or does April 1 come a week early in Oz land?
- I finished building a model of the WW2 Japanese submarine I-401 last month, so this doesn't look too strange to me. Read more comments
