Random idea which may already have been covered:  operational CF-105 carrying AIR-2 Genie

Or a later model with the AIM-68:

Wow! Did not know about the Big Q!  Does Big Q exist in styrene?  Could not find one via Google? Maybe a 3D print opportunity?

Not totally germane to this topic, but that does suggest a F-106 armed with one AIM-68 and four AIM-26 missiles.  Of course, that F-106 could be in Canadian markings.

That AIM-68 is quite a big missile in 1/72 scale, about 1 1/2" long (38mm). I was thinking of using a Bullpup as a base but I don't think they're that long.

My thoughts would be to use an AIM-47 or AIM-54 as a base.

Right now there is an amazing display in the window of Wheels & Wings Hobbies (Toronto, Canada) on the history of the Avro Arrow in celebration of the 60th anniversary of its first flight on March 25, 1958, a true marvel of the Canadian aviation industry!

Check it out at 1880 Danforth Ave! — at Wheels & Wings Hobbies.

From Facebook.

From the poster:  Thought you'd like to see a photo of my dad, Chris Pike's log book showing him flying a CF-100 doing an Avro Arrow chase. Dates are January 11 and February 1.

And:  "Arrow Chase" on Jan 11 1959 was as chase to Arrow RL205? aka the only time RL205 flew?

It's in the "Arrowhead" Arrow edition I have Greg --- page 158 plus quite a long paragraph about the proposal on pages 159 & 160. Quite a few diagrams too.

And, of course, there's Arrow II - the scale-o-rama replica with Learjet engines  ;)

Edit: Hmmm, first image went peculiar on me ... here's another. Anyhoo, the Arrow II is/will be a 60% scale replica, with GE CJ610-6 turbojets from a Learjet 24D.

Edit/Edit: Okay, images don't wanna play for some reason. Here's a link: https://www.avromuseum.com/arrow-ii-project.html

Being done by the guys that run Action Hobby in Calgary.  I got to see the beginnings of that when I was still in Calgary quite a few years ago.  These people also did the 1/8th RC model that was flown in the Avro movie featuring Dan Aykroyd.

Which book is that mate - not aware of it.  Can you post a picture of the cover or simply its ISBN?

Ta - I actually do have that one but must have forgotten those pages.  Mind you, I was thrown by the name - I was looking for a book titled Arrowheads.

Sorry, the 'word' Arrowheads is on the third page when you open it, which I believe are actually the authors, but I've always heard it referred to that way. The front of the book just says Avro Aircraft Arrow. The front also says 'Revised Edition'.
