This build could yet be a reality as I have been experimenting with making a replacement for the missing canopy. I have looked at the shape of the bit that is missing by studying and measuring the canopy on the arrow I made into a SHADO interceptor. After 3 attempts I think I might just have got something pretty damned similar. So watch this space. :-X

After nearly twelve months doing nothing, both this and my mark two Arrow have been dug out and looked at again. Genies and red tops are in primer, and a decision on where to mount the pylons. I am hoping the canopy is going to be ok, so as soon as I get some new cyanoacrylate glue, I will crack on.
