A P.1101 tandem trainer conversion, I think this will go very nicely with the P.1109B conversion in my stash and the recently re-released P.1083 wings I've ordered.

Hmm! even though I have the AMT RC-135V boxing, I might have to get one of those conversions.

Hold Up!  correction Carl, yesterday I saw your pics in your first post, and then you posted the pics from BritModeler. Well I've just noticed that all I can see this morning is what Greg shows in his post. Sorry about the confusion ----

I've just realized what the problem is, the link goes to the SPF site, you can't see any pictures if you're not logged in, probably why I could see it at first, I was logged in over there at the time.

Sneak preview of a Freightdog project that is under preparation for release in November, the Hawker Siddeley HS.125 Naval Courier brochure proposal from 1965. This will be a simple resin conversion for the re-issued Airfix Dominie in 1/72 scale, allowing you to made a COD version. The Naval Courier concept didn't get any further than a brochure but makes a fascinating What-If.

If you can find one, might be good to use on a Matchbox HS125-600 or a Sword U-125A for a stretch.

Yeah, but, IIRC, the Matchbox kit is of the TFE331-powered version.  I have a Dominie kit in the stash and likely will by more, but I do consider other options for extended whiffs.

Yep, you are correct.  The TFE331 was the civil designation for the engine that went in the T-46, a turbofan built on the same core as the TPE331.
