Supermarine Stingray S1
« on: March 05, 2020, 09:06:49 am »
Working on this beast for the navy GB.....just can't think of a name and type....so please send me your suggestions,

That's a 1/72 Cl 415 lower fuselage half under the 1/48 Stealth fighters fuselage. outriggers are also from the CL 415 (not installed yet)

The canopy was made by transparent epoxy in a mould from an Vulcan canopy.....came out perfectly, if a little malleable, probably needs some time curing.
Thanks for your suggestions!

Cheers,

This is the aircraft that Supermarine designed as an eventual follow-on to the Scimitar, I think.    If so , Supermarine were contemplating  other "S" names ......Sword ,  Sgian Dhu, Sabre , Stiletto, Switchblade and Seax. 

On the other hand, I could well be totally wrnog  wrong, and it is either  a Blackburn Brigand, Bludgeon or  Bandit as a Buccaneer  replacement

It  means that you read  the instruction sheet

Skate?
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! :)

Thanks gentlemen! :thumbsup:

A Supermarine is an interesting Idea. Also like the name Stingray as it resembles the real thing, kinda-sorta....So, Supermarine Stingray it is!

Thank you!

I was going to suggest Manta on similar lines.  I've got the theme tune in my head now.....

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.

Thanks for sharing Mossie!

I'm amazed this was produced in 1964/65....That old and yet so very imaginative and inspiring!

Great stuff!

This is looking very good and sexy. Why does it whisper "Batboat" to me all the time...?

Yes, it does look a little batboat like...It was next to the batplane for some weeks, maybe that helped?  :mellow: :unsure:
