Doesn't it make you wish that Hawker and the RAF had done it for real? Magical work indeed.  :bow: :bow:
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! :)

Looks like a Hotspur on steriods, like that colour scheme! :thumbsup:
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.

Yep, certainly looks like it could do some damage.

It's a little long for this forum, perhaps, so I have now linked it to a page I just created on my Furashita's Fleet site. It's raw right now, without illustrations, etc. but the backstory of my Hawker Henley is all there:

http://www.combinedfleet.com/furashita/HHenly_f.shtml

If it makes your heart race just a little, or puts a smirk on your face, it was all worth it!

James, OWom, Pablo, JHM, Pyro, GTX, Ricksh, SSB9, Pr_19, Narses2, SGazer, Mossie, Ttast--thanks for the comments. 

I won't mention the unmentionable goofs in the model that I could point out, but just revel in a concept well executed and appreciated. It COULDA been the British Dauntless!!
My mind is like a compost heap: both "fertile" and "rotten"!

Ye Gods.

Desperately looks for coat and hat and finds neither.
