Cheers  Robert,
If I can't  do anything with this one  I  will have a look for one,  this kit is very  basic, 

Yeah, I've got the single seat and the two seater PM kits too.

That  name  has rattled around,  as I  was wondering  if the engines from the meteor  would  fit in the Horten. I  haven't  looked at the  dynamics,  but it is wiffworld after all.

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

The Saro SRA.1* was powered by a pair of them.

*jet powered fighter flying boat, Beryl, a British axial flow jet engine not related to anything German and built during the war. The second Meteor prototype to fly was powered by the earlier Metro-Vick version.

What I was thinking ---

The Beryl is what I used in my backstory for this, an operational XP-86 straight wing.

I like the  look  of that Robert,  an3 in a similar  time  frame  to the Horten  too. The  aircraft will be either a test and evaluation aircraft,  or  an in service  fighter aircraft during  the 50's,  not  sure yet

And Donald Campbell's Bluebird boat used a Beryl in its first version too.

Not the one that crashed and killed him, that was an Orpheus from a Gnat.

Lots of information for the  back story,  brilliant stuff.  I  just  need to  photograph what I have done  so far  and  finish my current  builds, a joint  British  and French  project  nord griffon,  and  my Armstrong whitworth  meteor  missile  training  aircraft.  Then, lots of  stuff to  chip away at.

Chris, I've seen someone call their RafWaffe Horton an Amstrong Whitworth Skate - so there's that, FWIW.
IIRC they also added an extended radar nose, too.

I'm starting to think about this year's Plan items, but I've a feeling many could be stalled from last year and other part started builds.
