I was in the Manchester Museum of Science and Technology. Whilst returning from the 1800 Warehouse, I spotted a Wind Tunnel model, dumped in a new widow are under construction, I was catching up with granddaughter and other half..

I was in a hurry, though I took a few minutes to study the model through the window. As I was catching up with granddaughter and other half.

What was very unusual it was a delta, with a very large by proportion jet or Ram jet engine mounted in the fin . Very futuristic, in a Thunderbird way.

It had a label attached HS1201 or maybe 2101, lable was awkwardly sited and I was in a rush.

Does any one know anything about the project/study.

Good to see you back Eric.

It seems others have seen it, plus a butterfly tail version.

I guess the model I have seen gets the engine out of the body, simplifies the entry duct to the minimium, Assuming it was a supersonic plane (massive engine relative to the plane), enough to slow the air down.

No one seems to fit it into a project, other than apd 1034s project. I wonder what it was?
