Hi Longshoar!

Here's a three-view of the Blackburn B-48, which received the unofficial name of Firecrest, and was a further development of the Firebrand.

SOURCE:

Blackburn Aircraft Since 1909
pp. 452-456 & p. 535
Author: A.J. Jackson
Original Publishers: Putnam Aeronautical Books, London, 1989
Publishers: Naval Institute Press, Annapolis MD, USA
Copyright A.J. Jackson 1968

I hope this is the info you wanted!

Chuck

In an AirEnthusiast issue about the B.48 Firecrest was a photo of a mock-up
installation of a RR Clyde turboprop engine, the aircraft designated YA.6.

All-up weight: 16,4061b (7,442kg),
Climb rate: 4,255f/min (1,297m/min)
Ceiling: 39,000 ft (11,887 meters)
