Is that an over-under tail gun arrangement?  If so then is that another sticking out of the back of the engine housing???!!!

4 20mm guns in remote-controlled barbettes in rear of outer engine nacelles, see:

Initially they were trialed at the rear of the inner nacelles on a Lancaster, but that's the first time I've seen a pic of the Warwick with them.

Maybe your Windsor needs a couple of these too --- also with 20mm's

 Hmm. That almost makes building the ancient Pavla Ki-102 I have in the stash a moral imperative.

  It is a beautiful profile...I just so love the smooth contours of the original Windsor that its
 a bit of a shock seeing it like this.

.....and a whale too?!!!

Gloster's N.21/45 submission became the Grampus NF.1 in Royal Navy service. Powered by twin Rolls-Royce Crecys, it proved to be a valuable asset in the Soviet War.
