How do all! I tend to bash pixels from existing images (and I'll try to be diligent about crediting sources).

I like prototypes, one-offs and other odd-balls -- even for whifs. So, first up is our masthead Chimera in prototype form ...

Next up is an oldie, the first Canadian Forces Sukhoi CF-189 being escorting to CFB Bagotville by a CF-18M.

Wow, great welcome. Cheers lads!

For sure EH -- including the Hyena testbed you recommended ... in your earlier incarnation  ;)

BTW, the Armstrong-Whitworth backstory was predicated upon licencing PZL designs to make use of AW's metal construction experience. Here's the operational outcomes (for P.11/24 and a P.23 evolution).

Mmmm...I really like the P.23/AW123

...I also have a 1/48 P.24G in the stash already planned to be a RAF alternate to the Gloster Gladiator...

Thanks! I'd forgotten about the Africanus. Beautiful work! Oh, & I obviously love the Hyena-equipped variants!  ;) 

May I ask where you got a side view of the Hyena from?

Thanks lads.

Greg: I wish now that I'd done a version of the Armadillo with underwing Vickers 40mm guns.

[Edit: Now I have ... http://beyondthesprues.com/Forum/index.php?topic=351.msg4596#msg4596 ]

EH: Yeah, I think I was out ona thin branch with the Africanus  ;)  I never did find a sideview of the Hyena. So, I had to (ick, ack!) paint one myself.

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