VERY smart in that scheme Fred, and great work on the re-engine programme too.  :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! :)

Thanks Kit.

Sleek! But why did it end up in just a single color on the upper surfaces? Artistic interpretation at the museum?  ;)

Thanks folks.

Dizz, it is two colours (actually the same ones as the P.1099) but I put a filter over the top which brought them a little too close together.  Especially under artificial light.
There's a demarkation on the Right wing you can see in the picture below.

Oh, ah? On the pics (and my screen) the whole affair looks like a uniform black livery from above. I already wondered where the two tone had gone? Thank you for the clarification!  :thumbsup:

Yeah, I made the filter with very thinned extra dark green with a tiny touch of black.  I probably didn't need the black in it.
