Here is an alternate design for the Supermarine Seagull that was rejected by the Royal Navy. It featured a butterfly tail (V-tail).

Sure. This appeared in My Apprenticeship at Supermarine 1949-1954, a talk/presentation given by John Thompson at the Southampton Model Aeroplane Club (SMAC) meeting on 30th January 2013.
