Cool! Boulton Paul had a knack for slightly gawky airplane designs with great appeal anyhow.

Looks like I've got my work cut out...lol.

I'm working on a new set of German profiles but when finished I've now got a list of profiles to do that will fill the next 12 months for me.  ;D

They are on the list....In the meantime, any refs for any of the suggestions would be a great help.

Am picturing the P100 scaled up to a jet bomber.  Perhaps two jets in back A-10 style, maybe one or two under body/wings.  Radar directed tail gun where props are now.  Gun turret on fuselage top and bottom?   :-\
