Two pics of wind tunnel models found at Manchester Museum of Science and Industry

HS Kingston P.1201 for AST.403. Featured in BSP Fighters, with a butterfly tail. This is an alternative version - sorry, no dash number.

Also what I think was one version of (there were a lot!) the Hawker Siddeley Advanced Projects Group APG 1019. Wrote down what the label says and then lost it, so could be wrong. Any more info on this?

According to some notes I have dug out first pic is P.1201-1. The butterfly tail was on P.1201-2 and subsequent dash numbers.

Just found been told second pic is of HS APD 1034S. It will feature in BSP 4. Thanks!

No, just visited in the summer.

I saw another model of a 'Concorde' like APG project, but the picture did not come out as it is very gloomy and the model is black. But irt was not VG. Perhaps they have more models and circulate them.

Edit: Eh, I just realised that you already wrote that it really is HS 1034S. So here is additional info:

Yep, that's it! Where did this come from?

Edit (after seeing more than first pic): Ah, from the brochure!

Very interesting stuff! Where does the brochure come from? Archive? Ebay?

The spiral bound pages in question have been kicking around the internet for a year or two. I really don't know what to make of this project. Perhaps the new book will clarify the matter.

Wow, a Mach 4.0 VG interceptor??

The description mentions a Rolls-Royce "Type O" engine. What engine would that be referring to?

Models have a rough time when Museums or companies close. Countless models have ended up in skips over the years because they are written off as assets against tax.
The worst is yet to come. A number of private collections in the UK and US will be auctioned in the next few years as their owners leave us. Sadly they are likely to be dispersed into homes all over the world rather than go on display in South Kensington or the Smithsonian.

Given that the majority of the main items on display at the Museum were on loan the possibility that these will return to their original owners or find new homes is high... I've dropped them a line, will report back on any news.

Zeb
Is there a paper archive there or just the display items?

Not directly relevant to this thread but I do have concerns at the way in which key information is scattered around multiple archives and collections with only the scantest of cataloguing. The initiative at


is a good first step to draw everything together but does not appear to be making much progress, not least because, as professional archivists, they are overly focussed on how a catalogue should be constructed and less so on locating material held in small archives. I hope anything from MOSI that may need to be moved is adequately protected from the 'bin-it' brigade.

So apparently the Shackleton is moving to the AVRO heritage centre in Stockport, and I'm wondering if the Avro 707 will join it. I reckon somewhere like Cosford or even Duxford will take the EE P.1A, or rather I'm hoping so, as it deserves high quality regular maintenance in an indoor space.

I believe the Boscombe Down Heritage collection are having the 707 and P1A.

Unsubstantiated rumour has it that the Avro Heritage folks are going to be getting the former BAe/CAE simulator building next to the museum for the Shackleton (aka 'Dougal')... Boscombe Down Collection have confirmed they are getting the 707 and P1A, Belvedere is going to the International Helicopter Museum. the aircraft on loan from The Aircraft Collection (Rapide, Avian, Roe 1 replica and Benson) going back to Hooton Park, and the Yokosuka MXY-7 Ohka heading to Pima...
