My rough jet C-130:



Not that far off from a vstol C-130 proposal Lockheed showed in drawing form on their stand at the 1972 Turin airshow, it had four Pegasus engines like that.

As best I can remember (we are talking about 40 years ago, this coming summer) it was like the AW.681 and Do.31 with four nozzles each.

Now this is very coincidental, look what appeared on 'the other forum'   -- under the title 'Jet C-130'

I'm not sure who built it but it appeared on the table at the Perth show (I'm assuming that's the one in the UK too -----  ;D )

It was at the Scottish Nationals in Perth but I don't think (might be wrong) it was on the S.I.G. table.

I can enquire if people want to know

It was on one of the SIG tables if following the notes people left on the thread.  I've left a message on the thread to see if anyone knows, but I was told Martin H is the one who would know.

Martin H says it was done by Dugald Emens, who is a member of the Dundee IPMS
