It's Absolutely gorgeous,

Would love to see a plan of one by Tony Nijhuis in the magazine as prefer traditional balsa/ply structure.It is however something I could see Cyril Carr doing after seeing his Avro Arrow. Do you have any details of the wingspan,weight and turbine its powered by Peter?

Many Thanks for showing us all such a wonderfully unique,good looking,rare and undermodled British aircraft.

Kind Regards

Steve laughyes

During the war Boulton Paul, made an all wood prototype fighter which could be manufactured in a rush if Spitfire and Hurricane production was overwhelmed. Don't see that modelled very often. Pointless information but somebody has got to tell it.

Didn't know that, and Google did not turn up anything on this - did it have a name?

Are you sure it was Boulton Paul and not Miles? I know that Miles produced an all wood fighter using a Merlin but with a fixed undercarriage designated M20.  However, by the time it was ready, the supply of Spitfires and Hurricanes had been resolved and the M20 was dropped.
