Avro Cannock F.A.W mk2
« on: February 13, 2021, 01:46:48 pm »
What if competitor to  the Gloster Javelin  in service  circa  1960. Originally designed to  carry 2 Red Hebe or red Dean missiles  on the wing tips, but the missiles were cancelled.  Avionics are  carried in the pods on the wing tips  instead  of the missile pylons.  Four firestreak missiles  can be carried  on the mk2 or 2 missiles and 2 long range  tanks. Two 30 mm cannons  can be added  onto the fuselage  in a streamlined  gondola, behind  the front  landing gear .

Not too far off the real world CF-103 (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Avro_Canada_CF-103).

The Cf-103 did inspire  this build  when I was looking for things to do with the  Canuck.

VERY smart Chris!  :thumbsup:

Where did the wings come from?
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! :)

VERY smart Chris!  :thumbsup:

Where did the wings come from?
They are  1/48th scale  F-16 wings kit and the tail wings are  plastic card.  Cheers.

That's lovely Chris.  Great work.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

I am  telling fibs, I have just realised that the  wings are  kitech  mig-25 wings in1/72nd scale, not the F-16 wings.  Those are still in the bits box  :-X
Oops

Oh, and thankyou fellas :thumbsup:

Now we're talkin' ! That looks great Chris !  Can you take more pics of it with a better background ? Like a solid colour ? I'd like to edit it, but it will be hard with all of the clutter.

Cheers !
