I'll have to get one, the one's I have are the Beechnut (x2) and the High Planes kits.  Got some plans to build an 'F' and 'G' ---

Funny you should say that Robert, that's EXACTLY what I want to do as well.  ;D

That monster canopy sat flat on the top of the fuselage works so well, I wonder why they didn't do it on the H?
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! :)

Regards
Kit

Kit, the H was built for 2 things: Range and Speed. She was slightly larger than the D model, but that didn't keep her from being faster. Sadly, two things caused the death of the H project, the Jet Age and the End of WW2, had either not been an issue, the H would have replaced the D.
