Before cutting up the Nord fuselage I started on this project. There wasn't much cutting involved actually, only the fuselage of the Potez as the hurricane was only a leftover (engine, prop and cockpitarea, can't remember were the tailsection was used for).

Wing will become shaped like the famous Westland Hill Pterodactyl but with twin boom to please Tophe ( :mellow: ;D)

OoooooooOOOOOOOOOhhhhhhhh! That looks VERY promising!  :thumbsup:

What's the clear bit at the front then?

Westland Wonderplane? (Very 30s, don't you think?)

Westland Wren?

Westland Wrillet? (long legged bird with an immensely long beak)
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! :)

The clear bit is the front of a Potez 63-11......stashed several of the Azur models for it's weird looking transparancies  :mellow:

and you guessed it right it's to become a westland plane late 30-ies...inspired by the De Schelde S.21 but slightly bigger.

I like Willet....Westland Willet sound great.....maybe some more suggestions?

Thanks!

I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Definately!  RN ship names are always good for agressive sounding names, if you leave out the Flower Class!

We're missing the obvious, Westland Whiff, Whiffer, (Whiffersnapper???)....

It's not really British, but how about Wendigo F.1?

Assuming it completed its mission it could be Wendiditgetback
