Hi all - I hope someone can help me identify the acompanying drawing. It's drawn by Doug Rolfe and I scanned it from a 1952 Air Trails magazine. I've looked for it in my own library and on through Google. All he called it was "Handly Page Bomber - 1935". I'd like to know a bit more about it - like its name, so I can file the drawing away.
Any help would be most appreciated.
Thanks, John

Hi Tomac!

It appears to be a Handley Page H.P.47.

Design Specification G.4/31.

I can provide a three-view if you'd like.

A simple Google image search on "Handley Page H.P.47." will also provide you photos of the real thing.

Hi!

Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handley_Page_H.P.47
"The Handley Page H.P.47 was a British single-engined low-wing monoplane built to an Air Ministry specification for a general-purpose bomber and torpedo bomber aircraft. Only one was built."

"Behind the radial Bristol Pegasus IM3 engine, producing 650 hp (485 kW) and enclosed in a Townend ring, the semi-monocoque, corrugated skinned fuselage grew in diameter to the pilot's midwing cockpit then remaining constant rearwards to the gunner's position. He sat facing rearwards below the upper fuselage line and out of the slipstream, at a point where the fuselage stepped to a slim and narrowing oval boom. There was usable space inside the fuselage between the cockpits, enough to carry three passengers or two stretcher cases. All the tail surfaces moved; the fin, mounted ahead of the tailplane, moved with the horn-balanced rudder but through smaller angles, changing the camber, and the tailplane and single elevator were similarly coupled. "

Bottom picture explanation.
"The unusual tail arrangement of the H.P.47 is well shown in these photographs. As the fin and rudder are ahead of the horizontal tail surfaces they are not "blanketed" at large angles of incidence. The picture on the right gives a good idea of the view and field of fire obtained by the rear gunner. "
