Nimrods's Genesis has the story of the P.104 and the R.2/48 boats.

But just remember it's an aircraft book.

The P 104. Thank you Barrington Bond for a superb general arrangement of a beautiful aircraft design.

Thanks, but they all seem to be downloaded from this topic, from what I can see.

Yes, a few of them are posted here in this topic in lower resolution.

However I looked through the whole topic before making the above posts. Were the guppy, land based princess and nuclear mock-up moved to other topics? Because none of those images appear in this thread now.

Well, I checked three, and all three are the exact same image already posted here in this topic, same scan and image size. I admit I didn't check every image. Going by the other images in the Photobucket it's a collection of interesting images found on the internet by someone who probably is a member here.

Never mind though.

Would Saro have been able to produce a Pegasus powered version of the P.104 designs for its R.2/33 spec rather than the OTL A.33 design?

Obviously without the radar, torpedoes etc but having the same basic design.

Sorry? You want to know whether an aircraft designed to spec. R.2/48 in 1948 could have been re-engined and sent back in time to compete to spec. R.2/33 in 1933?
Basically, no. There is an additional 15 years of flying boat development involved.

What puzzles me here is the fact that Arthur Ord-Hume used a years old
what iff P.192 as illustration in his otherwise good book.

According to Richard Payne in an Aeroplane article past year , several variants
were planned of the P.192 but in the book ,none was mentioned in the pages about ...
