Quote from: AeroplaneDriver on September 03, 2008, 02:44:28 PMYou've got me thinking about a Merlin-engined Beaufighter...
Quote from: sequoiaranger on September 03, 2008, 05:31:30 PMInteresting---never before heard of the Calquin. I looked it up and the radials are "wussy" 1050 HP Pratt and Whitney's. Just ONE Centaurus has as much HP. Hmmmm--How would a SINGLE-engined Mossie look?? Plant a big R-4360 "cornrow" on its nose like a Skyraider, and load up those wings with ordnance!
Quote from: Aircav on September 03, 2008, 12:48:41 PMThe Radial Mosquito looks like it's wearing boxing gloves Nice bit of conversion work.
Quote from: The Wooksta! on September 03, 2008, 03:10:26 PMA Griffon Beaufighter with Shackleton engines and contraprops would look really cool. Right, I'm copyrighting that one! And I've got the relevent bits to hand. I've got a Merlin Beaufighter together anyway.
Quote from: kitbasher on September 04, 2008, 04:28:19 AMI think there was at least one Griffon Beau built for tests in real life - recall seeing a pic somewhere recently (Aeroplane Monthly?) but not as butch-looking as one with Shack-style nacelles. Sounds like something the ancient Airfix Beau could be used for?
