aha, the starting point involves a hull and side-floats ...

Looking at that drives you crazy because your brain tries to identify it as all 50's British jets simultaneously. So definitely a success :thumbsup:

All been considered Gondor, but sticking it out the nose or at least to the side a bit of the nose, the pilot can't see it. Evan had suggested placing it on the centerline above the canopy, still not sure on that yet.

The probe would be extendable in flight to a point that the pilot can see it, easily represented by using several nested tubes to reproduce the appearance or it could be more like the Tornado GR1/4 versions with the probe being pushed out sideways into the airstream from the fuselage side.

Here's the 'PR9' with the PR9 camera bay added.  ;D

LOTS of PSR was required, Airfix and Mach 2 not really agreeing on the shape of the Canberra's underside.



Lots more PSR tomorrow I suspect.

Maybe you should call it the PSR9   ;D :rolleyes: :thumbsup:

Thank you. Yes, it looks intentional!  ;)

I suspect the difference is because the real PR9 had a longer fuselage than the bomber versions, and the RB-57F was based on the earlier B2, which was shorter.

With hindsight I should have sawn down the length of the camera bay door by maybe 5 mmm or so, but then hindsight is the World's only exact science.....  ;D ;)
