Two articles by Tony Buttler - Supermarine Successors & Roll-Royce Fighter. Two interesting little side stories.
The Gotha article is by Andreas Metzmacher with Neil Mathews and has beautiful renders by Ronnie Osthoorn.
French Jet Fighter Seaplanes by Jean-Christophe Carbonel.

Thanks!! :)

The cover has a vertical image, while the centre-spread has a horizontal poster. This was possible as the full image is square. Please see attached.

Note the partially deployed drag rudders... most other artwork of this plane has them fully deployed on both wings, undoubtedly because they look a bit like winglets on the original drawings! I'm not even sure if that would've been possible, but I guess it could act as an air brake in that case. Thanks to Justo Mirando's Reichdreams on Gotha 'Bats' I was aware of this feature.
