Small brown dog:
Well this is a wonderful place full of types that would not shy away from a radial Spitfire, a trimotor Mosquito and perhaps the odd flying Jagdpanther. Its not short of a great deal of drool inducement in both polystyrene and pixel form either. I have no idea how I have missed this place before but it is a welcome find.

Not sure if anyone has been to Duxford lately but there is a new engine exhibit in the Airspace building:



The Kestrel ELectric XXX was the Hawker (Hunting) Hound MK4b power unit coupled with the  legendary Aero Electric SBD-146/58 field coil spool.

I found a couple of old period adverts too:




If you go looking for this engine at Duxford you will need to hunt for it as itís a bit like trying to locate platform 9 3/4. Duxford is also home to one of the currently airworthy Hound Mk4b's



I can give a full history of the Hound and a background history of Aero Electrical flight if anyone is interested though it might be a bit sleep inducing as I'm just a small brown dog with too much time on its paws, mucking about and re writing aviation history one aircraft at a time from a location slightly south of lost.

I work in 3D and composite in Photoshop which is just a fancy way of saying I photo bash my own 3D creations.
