Move the engines out board a little more and add props for a Pucara look. Great kit bashing work!

Until I saw that pic I didn't realise quite how flat the underside of a Clunk was.  :o

And I walked underneath one many years ago too.

The engine location is reminiscent of the Clunk.


I was thinking that only yesterday!

Love the CF-100.  If only the radome were a bit pointier.

I've never seen the wing tip like that before. I assume that's where they bolted the fuel tanks/rocket pods ? Just I've never seen that detail exposed.
Decals my @r$e!

Exactly that, Chris.

When you look at the Clunk then Kit’s Gloster Lancer you’ll see why I think the Lancer best suits Canadian markings.

I'd have to take the tip tanks off................  ;)

No you won’t, Kit.  CF-100’s flew with wingtip pods.  The CF-101B Lancer (Avro Canada doing to Parliament what Grumman, Republic and others did to Congress with the Panther/Cougar and the F-84) could carry either wingtip tanks or pods.

Up north and a chance to work on the FrankenCOIN.  Wingtip tanks made from Revell Hawk T1 drop tanks, replacement aileron made from plastic card, Scrap plastic fitted to the base of the fin (will be filled then shaped to blend the fin in with the fuselage) and the front fuselage attached to the rest.

Suddenly looking as though it could be done by the deadline.

Nice! The tail surfaces look a bit small, though?

Hawker's thought the same thing when they first built the T3, and fitted a HUGE fin. But later shrunk it and shrunk it till it was just a tad larger than the single seater's.

It could be an entry against the Canadair CL-41T in an RCAF COIN competion
that started 40+ years ago and is still ongoing with no decision being reached.
