A bit of fun. (Not too much though, as theres a limit to what one can handle on a Monday morning!) This is the progress on my current project. Topic title will be updated when someone gets it right. regards, Jason
An unusual version of the Hawker Hurricane, one of Britain's main fighters in WW2. This was an experimental project that added a top wing to the monoplane. The top wing was supposed to stabilize the aircraft for better landing performance on semi-prepared runways. Also, fuel capacity was doubled. The War Dept though did not approve of the project and it was abandoned in the summer of '41.
The Fairey Barracuda was a British carrier-borne torpedo- and dive bomber used during the Second World War, the first of its type used by the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm to be fabricated entirely from metal. It was introduced as a replacement for the Fairey Swordfish and Fairey Albacore biplanes. It is notable for its role in attacking the German battleship Tirpitz and known for its ungainly appearance on the ground.
