Fancy the next one? It might be a bit of a monster



LOVE IT!  It is one I've been interested in a long, long, time... :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

That Saunders-Roe machine has to be the BIGGEST ever proposal for an RAF 'fighter'!  :o :o

Thunderbird 2.

Mossie:
Kit, it's slightly smaller (talking inches) then some of the other F.155T proposals but it was certainly heavier and bulkier.

I've mentioned it before but I've got this image in my mind of it slowly building speed down the runway, then leaping into the air as the four rockets were lit. I believe the standard procedure would be to light the rockets at altitude, either way, it must have been a hell of a kick for the pilot.

I live in the US, though, so if that's too $$ for the postage & etc, I'll understand.

I'm aiming to print locally so I'll see if I can track down a collaborator who would print and distribute these in the US & Australia in return for a royalty on sales. I'd like to try and make the most out of the distributed nature and low retooling costs of 3D printing. Know anyone local to you who might be interested?

I did some work on the undercarriage last night so might have something soon. Are you the UK?

Iím awfully impressed by the subjects and everything, but as my experience with all resin kits is limited to a few Anigrand kits, I think some of the more experienced chaps here would be better test pilots.

That aside - Iím still really, really tempted by the FD3.  :wub:

Experience schmearience - I've never made a resin kit in my life. My exposure to resin to-date consists of a couple of PJ Productions helicopter crewmen

Sorry, someone has already made a start on that at https://www.instagram.com/p/CSZ5hFsDU3l/ - can I put you down for the deHavilland DH117?
