RAF type applied in the US with water-based paints before shipping, the blue and yellow showing through
the thin, quickly worn paint-job.

Back in the early '90s Germany was investigating a cheaper version.  Here are some of the options looked at...

This could not be good! Photo taken in 2017.

Tactical aircraft maintenance specialist to Crew Chief: Have you seen my tool box?

"Notice anything different about this Global Hawk?"  USAF serials on the tail?  ;)

NDHQ has been hankering after Global Hawks since late 1999. Maybe they are hoping for a 20 Year Anniversary procurement special?

U.S. Enters WWII Early (1940) GB / Re: Martin's Export Bomber

Thanks folks!

Perhaps you're thinking of the (Boeing)Stearman X-100/XA-21?  ...

Nailed!  :-[  Yes indeed, the original nose was shamelessly stolen from the unwary X-100 prototype (although, to be fair, the XA-21 wasn't using it anymore ...).

BTW the real Martin Model 177 proposal was a twin-tail design, although it too had a nose arrangement like X-100...

Now that's just plain spooky  :o I thought that my Stearman rip-off borrow was original.  I'm intrigued too, though. Must check our Messers Buttler and Griffith's tome. Cheers Jon!

Ooo, I like that. Maybe right after a heavy rain fall. I am now beaming this concept telepathically in the direction of Mrs Lady Mog ...
