Proctor development, competitor to the Miles Gemini and using the Airfix dH.88 engines and main u/c.  Combined age of the donor kits is 121!!

Just don't add the age of the builder that would realy shock us.  :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Probably look better in Roman numerals  ;) :angel:

OK.  Birth certificate-related abuse aside, some progress with the Puffin.  First off the component parts, then following a spot of messy play getting sub-assemblies together (rear bench seat, engines, wings, finding I don't have a rudder and one of the tailplane halves is exactly the same as the other (thanks Lee for the other Proctor, solved those problems!), then a rough idea of what the finished item will, I hope, look like. 

EDIT 1: The Meteor nose works pretty well as anticipated, a bit of reprofiling either of it or the lower fuselage ahead of the wing root but noting too drastic.  Have found some replacements for the awful Airfix Comet wheels.  And speaking of the Airfix Comet, just after slapping the engine nacelles together I'm back on the 'never buying one of those again' wagon!

EDIT 2 : The Photobucket logo is annoying so back to Flickr.  Some relearning (it's a faff compared to Photobucket) but got there.

I still use Photobucket and don't get that logo. Often wondered why you do ?

Neat concept by the way  :thumbsup:
