SRN.4, of course, and as Kit has pointed out in the past, the Bell LCAC has almost the same footprint
as the BHC.7. Building most real world BHC.7 out of one of the 1/144 or 1/72 LCAC kits would require
a lot of kit-bashing/scratchbuilding for the superstructure, but, there were other concepts of both
the SRN.6 and BHC.7 that would be more easily adaptable.

What I've always fancied doing is a BAe-146-based version for the British Antarctic Survey... :wacko: (Not saying I'll get it done for this GB mind..)

So get building H, lots of cheapish 146s about, mostly in 1/144 of course. I may even have a few going spare.  ;D

Got a 146 and a couple of 1/144th A-10s to nick the engine nacelles from. The problem is the flattened engine nozzles: I suppose I could learn how to smash/vac mould and make them that way, but that would depend on me not being a lazy git....

Part 2

Note that the BHC.7 propeller pylon is the same as that used on the SRN.4, so 1/144 modelers are
a step ahead. The Mk.6 'gunboat' has a lengthened hull, but a similar layout could be built on
the shorter LCAC platform.

Veeeeery interesting JCF, bags of scope there.

I've got both scales of the Bell LCAC, but I'm somewhat frightened about all that rubber skirting, I'm sure it 's going to rip when I try and install it. Those BH7 variants look really good, a pity they didn't build any of them.

What flattened engine nozzles are they?

joncarrfarrelly:
A couple of SRN.4 concepts, the minesweeper would be a fairly simple mod of the Airfix kit.
