Good evening gents.

My next visualisation project is this unorthodox but business-like canard pusher proposal for a ground attack fighter. I have Tony Buttler's Fighters and Bombers 1935-50, which in itself is great and probably enough to model from. Does anyone know more? I'm in a book-buying mood if anyone has any titles which may be useful.

Thanks in advance.

Martin

Thanks for the link Bailey, I'd hoped I'd see one of Peter's splendid 3 Views somewhere.

Very interesting - especialy the jaw-like escape system, although the hinged lower 'jaw' appears to house the entire front undercarriage as well as crew compartment, at least four cannon and ammunition! I hope they had a very good safety catch in mind.

Any other info gratefully accepted.

The only other information I can find is from Boulton Paul Aircraft since 1915, Alec Brew, Putnams.
Included here for the record.

Regards Bailey.

Thanks to those that assisted and for anyone who would like to see what the upshot was I have posted a few examples of the art in the CGI forum.

Cheers.
