This drawing is from RAF Flying Review. I had the entire page at one time, but not anymore. It's not all I'm missing!. Who knows what model this is or even if it is Hawker?

That looks like an all weather development of the plane shown in the appendix of Tony Butler's book on British fighters. I'm at the office, so I don't have access to my books right now, but there is a plane in that book which is a single seat day fighter with a shock cone inlet in the nose and six cannons (three in each wing) IIRC with an almost identical wing and tail. I can check when I get home.

Thanks to all for the info. I thought it might be the P.1091 but now I know better. Matej I'll contact you. Thanks.
For the ones who likes to kwow the rest of the article:

Flying Review International Vol 20 No.1 September 1964
"The Frustrating 'Fifties " pages 67 - 69.
Hello my friends

I suggest to all visit the webpage of Flitzer, he have a gorgeous illustration of this aircraft and many others projects.

Greetings All -

I was recently given a couple of dozen tatter issues of Flying Review International that are from the early-mid '60s. In Vol. 20 No.1, there's an article called "The Frustrating 'Fifties" which covers a number of Hawker designs. Attached is P.1092 which I do not recall seeing before. Anyone have additional info ont he design and the Specification it was intended for?

Enjoy the Day! Mark
