A couple of SARO autogyro concepts that apparently use the HDM.106 fuselage as the
starting point. The HDM.106 was the Miles-Hurel-Dubois project that was sold to Shorts
and developed into the Skyvan. Applying these gyro layouts to a Skyvan would be fairly
straightforward. The rest of the SARO 220 series are in the Westland Scout topic.

Sense doesn't come into it. People are
more scared of how complicated crap
actually is than they ever are about
whatever's supposed to be behind the
conspiracy."

LOVE the original HDM 106.  :wub:

I really must build one of them one of these days.

The P220/1 looks like a mini-Rotodyne!  ;D
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Just what I was thinking.
What it needs is a small auxiliary engine in the pylon to spin the rotors up just fast enough for tip mounted ramjets to take over.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

With that monster pylon they could have a VERY big auxiliary engine in there!  :o

Updated my previous post by replacing the lost photos and I've removed the old post.

I've just read an article about Viking Air making their Twin Otter as a water bomber. At the end of the article it lists all the aircraft Viking Air owns the rights too, it seems that when they bought all the rights of the DHC-1 to DHC-7 and the water bombers from Bombardier, they acquired all the rights to the Skyvan and Sherpa lines too ---
