Great stuff!

Beside just being sooo Bristol, your Pudding heavy bomber is like something straight out of Bruce McCall's Major Howdy Bixby's album of forgotten warbirds - and that's high praise! I especially like your second dorsal turret tucked in behind the cockpit canopy. Brilliant  :smiley:

Your Consolidated-SNCASE SE.121 is completely bonkers! I love it ... SE.100 meets B-24 meets Klingon Bird-of-Prey. The barbettes on the u/c outriggers really take the cake  ;D

The SNCASE SE.121 looks very... French, with the tail pods.

Love your SuperLancaster ... kind of Avro's take on the Ju 488  ;)

And anything that gives the Stirling more wing is a good thing  :smiley:

All due apologies. Still, ya gotta love Bruce McCall's stuff.

It would be impossible to pick a favourite from that Bixby series. But, the least convincing was his Avions Septum NC 2501.2 high-altitude bomber. Real French bombers of the time were waaay uglier and much less plausible than McCall's spoof!
