Our second child was about ten days late, wouldn't that be enough ? ;DHarrier said:... and my second child being due in six days time ( ).
Do you still have any copies left?Harrier said:I still have a dozen copies if anyone wants one.
It's a Rolls Royce painting. As actual designs could not be shown at the time this allowed them to show the three post nozzles without revealing the P1216. Roy Braybrook pointed out it would need lead ballast in the tail booms to balance, and Francis K Mason even put it in the Hawker Putnam, but it was artwork, not a design. I first saw it in a BBC Money Programme in the 80s.I recently purchased this original painting, by Pat Owen dated 1980 or 1983, of what looks like a p.1216 variant. It doesn't seem be illustrated in the book although there are canard-configured variants mentioned. I'd think that the the proposal must have had some promenance if the marketing guys had a painting done of it, assuming it's not fan-art. Does anyone know anything about this proposal?

Very slow reply I signed a form with BAE Heritage and got the material security cleared back in 2009 to publish for the book. I assume you would need to repeat that. Also, copying the book pictures and republishing would breach copyright of the book.While I am waiting (grin), I have scaled the 3-view of the P.1216-41 on the back endpaper to 1:72. It's big for a Harrier derivative, compare it to the original P.1127 I have put alongside it in this photo:
By the way, if I wanted to publish that 1:72 set, whose permission would I need?
Thank you, I hope to follow it up in due course. Since the material has already been declassified, there should at least be no need to go through that again. If they have no suitable digital image I may come back and ask about licensing a copy of yours. Dare I also ask if your copy of the P.1219 (cropped wing) variant would bear enlargement?I signed a form with BAE Heritage and got the material security cleared back in 2009 to publish for the book.
