Certainly suits the new nose  :thumbsup:


Like the Cher says after leaving the Plastic Surgeon : I'm really happy with my new nose... :thumbsup: :wacko:

Nice!  :thumbsup:


It looks a bit like a tail-less version of your recent Blackburn machine Thomas.  :thumbsup:
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! :)

Interesting combo. Looking forward to the finished model.
We don't just embrace insanity here.  We feel it up, french kiss it and then buy it a drink.

It reminds me of a RB-57 minus the rear fuselage! Awesome job on a very creative idea!  ;D

With that nose and canopy it certainly looks as though it came from the AW stable.  :thumbsup:

Kit (PR19) will love the wings

P.S. If you would like me to move this to the main builds section let me know.

He certainly does.  :thumbsup:

Of course the Artemis was being built at the same time as the twelve Meteor PR19s that AW did........  ;D ;)

I'll tell you PR 19 knows his stuff!

The Artemis was a production variant of the AW.52. And yes it was about the same time when AW build the PR19's...

Great build!
That aircraft behind it is very interesting too. Whiff I assume?
