  1. Here's the first of the series of aircraft I associate with Filton Airfield, and the one that brings back the fondest memories of standing on the cycle track on the A38 at the eastern end of the runway with the roar of the engines and the smell of the jet fuel. XA903's history has been recounted in detail elsewhere, and is well worth tracking down, sadly only the nose remains at 2AV8 near Stranraer. This build is based on the Pit Road/GWH B2 kit and converted to a B1 (thanks to robvulcan of this manor for inspiration to attack the wings). I have not altered the intakes (intentional) or included the wing pitot tubes (forgot). The Olympus 593 was scratchbuilt, decals were a combination of kit, spares box and home made. Not a perfect build, but great fun and, overall, I'm happy with the result.
