So, there are possibilities for models to be made if there is a market for it. The question is, what would sell?

Don't have a model of the GOR.339 unfortunately.

You forgot the choice :- 'All of the above'.  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

"All of the above" is unlikely to happen, so vote for your favorite 2 :)

I voted for the P.1121 (accurate production) because I think that would be the best seller of the aircraft options, and the unbuilt weapons set because that's the one I am personally most likely to buy.

I would have liked to have voted for the P.1103 too, since it's a personal favorite.

Red Dean and Blue Dolphin have been done by Freightdog (Red Dean is part of the Canberra conversion set, Blue Dolphin is part of the P.1154 weapons set).

I voted for the Accurate Production one too as it would be nice to get a fresh model of the type in its production configuration so as best to make use of the aircraft in the What-if/Project Cancelled realm.

Also voted for the Weapons set for the same reasons as they can be used on Project Aircraft but also actual Aircraft for another twist to What-If/Project Cancelled.

I would have liked to have gone for the P1125 as its size and shape offered more interesting possibilities going forward as that could have been envisaged as something like a Phantom alternative, but its place in the timeline was more as feeding towards the 1129 and into GOR339. Ironically a two seat 1125 could have probably formed the basis for a 60/70s strike fighter for the RAF/FAA without the distraction of VG.

I did exactly the same for the same reasons  :thumbsup:

Well considering the kit I have is of the prototype (albeit not as accurate) I went for an 'accurate' production and the 'B'.  Although, I think if a 'B' was available I'd put a Tornado F.3 nose on it

P.1154 set is OOP.  The P.12 set is still available it's an expensive way to go to get a Red Dean.

I voted for the weapon set and the production accurate one as well, although I quite fancy that P.1129...

I'd be unlikely to buy a kit so I won't submit a vote, but for the record I like the P.1103 :thumbsup:.

If you contact Colin and ask/explain what you want them for, he might do you a bunch of Red Deans all by themselves, like he did for me. I got eight of them along with eight Firestreaks

The existing models are actually a hybrid of prototype and production based on Barrie Hygate's drawings. The dogtooth on the wing was definitely not on the prototype for instance. The engine would have been Gyron for the prototype (no choice!) but almost certainly Olympus 21R/22R for production with differing nozzles.

Ideally an accurate Production model would include alternative front fuselages for Strike and Fighter versions.
