Magnificent stuff Mr. Rheged sir.  :thumbsup:

Like all good backstories the reader is forever trying to work out where reality ends and whiffness commences. I LOVE it!  :wub:
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

Fantastic! Truly. Very well done, I enjoyed it thoroughly!! Ties everything together in a much more interesting way than I ever could have imagined.  :wub: :wub:  Lots of very nice surprises in that story.  :mellow:


Someone needs to build the Raspberry Ripple B.3.  :wacko: :angel:

Thank you all for your support...but I couldn't have even started it without  a high quality model to provide inspiration.   Thank you,  Steelpillow,  for the additional data on what became of  the Vulture B3. Should anyone wish to add further information on this seriously under researched aircraft I'd be delighted to have your contribution.  It's already a collaborative effort and more collaboration is a GOOD THING!

Like all good backstories the reader is forever trying to work out where reality ends and whiffness commences.

I rather enjoyed this one. 71 squadron was the first of the Eagle squadrons in WW2 and the serials are in fact from a group of unused Vulcan codes. As you all have probably already realised ,  Dr William Penney is an engineering hero of mine and I'll  look for any chance to big him up.

A bit late for this party but anyway, that is one sweet Hustler, Brad, great work!  :thumbsup:
And the backstory's also a very good read, Rheged. :thumbsup:
