  1. Designed to test the low speed characteristics of highly swept wings for Concorde, the HP115 was used for many years of research flying without any major changes and is now preserved at the FAA Museum Yeovilton next to the first British Concorde and the BAC221 used for high speed wing research. A very simple kit with no build issues and painted with Alclad. I added the smoke generators on the wing leading edges and printed my own decals. Thanks for looking. Steve
  2. Designed as a supersonic Hunter follow-on fighter with a more highly swept wing and an afterburning Avon engine, the P1083 was never flown. It was cancelled due to defence cuts following the end of the Korean war and because the English Electric P1 (Lightning) showed much promise. Basically it's the Airfix Hunter F6 fuselage with the Project-X vacform wings and tail fairing. Finished with home made decals. With the P1067 Hunter prototype to show the different wing sweep. Thanks for looking. Steve
  3. Following the success of the Hunter, Hawker designed the supersonic P1121 which was substantially larger. The first aircraft was under construction when the project was cancelled but the forward fuselage has survived and is in storage at RAF Cosford. Despite the size the kit was easy to build and I finished it in a pale green scheme similar to the Hunter prototype. Thanks for looking. Steve
  4. Inspired by the German WW2 Bachem Natter, the Fairey Delta was originally designed to take off vertically from a ramp as an interceptor. This idea was quite sensibly dropped and it was used for delta wing research and was the first British delta. A nice simple vacform with a few metal parts for the undercarriage. Painted with Alclad and finished with home made decals. Thanks for looking. Steve
  5. Designed for vertical take-off using four lift engines in the centre fuselage, the SC1 originally flew with just the single propulsion engine to check the airframe first. A very small model so saves some display space! Painted with Alclad and finished with home printed decals. With the later version fitted with the lift engines. Thanks for looking. Steve
  6. Despite the small size the Short SC1 had 5 engines, 4 to provide vertical lift and 1 for forward flight. Painted with Alclad and finished with home made decals. With the early single engine version. Thanks for looking. Steve
  7. I like to have a couple of builds on the go at the same time so will be doing this alongside the little Grob 120. The Saunders-Roe SR177 was a development of the SR53 for RAF & RN use and used jet and rocket engines. Like a lot of other promising British jet projects it was cancelled in the infamous 1957 Defence White Paper as missiles were thought to be a better option. My plan is to do the first prototype that was under construction at the time of the cancellation and have printed my own serial numbers and RN titles. I won't be using any of the kit decals as they are of the Pressfix type and my previous experience of them is not good. The kit is a typical vacform with some nice surface detail and decent metal parts. Steve
