Flitzer (Peter Allen) has sent us another great set of profiles of British postwar designs. Pure gold for "what if..." fans - just imagine some of these in the Suez Crisis!...

Great thanks go to Merlin for publishing Vol 3.
In spite of a very heavy work schedule he still found the time to make it happen.

Cheers

Great job. Really interesting reading and viewing.

I especially like the P1061. It is ungly in a very special way. Would love to see that one as a kit.

Thanks for sharing

Excellent work as always Peter.

I cant help thinking that the Vickers Supermarine 553 looks like the MiG 21 Fishbed. Is this just coincidence or is there an interesting story here ?

Sorry for the delay in replying...

Hi and many thanks for your comments.

Dave...
you are right the Type 553 does sort of look MiG-esque.

Whether or not there was some info leak we'll never know...


Many thanks again
Peter

Hopefully with Pro Resin doing some Boulton & Avro prototypes we might see some of these coming out.
We can all dream.
