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?
