I never did find a sideview of the Hyena. So, I had to (ick, ack!) paint one myself.

In that case, doubly well done! I've only seen a front-on and front-quarter view in the Armstrong Whitworth Putnam myself. The A.W. XVI is a little cracker!  :-*

Very nice, especially like the Chimera and the Sukhoi CF 189.  :)

Cheers Bladerunner. The CF-189 retouch was fun. I probably overdid the weathering on the CF-18 but wanted it to look suitably beat-up (don't want to outshine the new kid!).

Next up is an alternative-alternative take on Litvak's AltCan scenario. There's a backstory for the CX-112 but it's a bit too long for here.

Do you have more views of Panther mailplane? A 3-view would be lovely.


Alas, I ditched the original sideview (there never was a 3-view). What I had in mind for the Panther was a re-engined prototype AW.123 with the rear cockpit smoothly faired over to become a mail compartment.

That's gorgeous and it's got a great family resemblance to both the CF-100 and the C-102.

Doesn't it, though? The whole thing just screams "Avro". I love it.

Thanks. I forgot to mention that the CX-112 used the canopy from the 'Clunk'. In the backstory, Avro is responding to a GoC dictat to focus on military projects. The C.102 engines were meant to be for the prototype only with twin Orenda turbofans planned for the production model.

Big-Gun Armadillo

It turns out that I didn't dump the Armstrong Whitworth original -- just bozoed the file names ;P

So, for Greg, here's an AW.24 Armadillo with twin Vickers 40mm S guns...

Jetliner and Cosmopolitan
« Reply #28 on: January 17, 2012, 06:19:28 AM »
And here's another Avro Canada-related offering. In the backstory, the Jetliner prototype serves in the RCAF but, at the GoC's order, that airliner project is transferred to Canadair.

Canadair later evolves the C.102 airframe into a twin RR Dart transport called the Cosmopolitan.

Now we need a 1/72 C102 Jetliner to build all these beautiful birds.  :)

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.
