Hey guys I spotted this 'wiff' over on the whatifmodelers website.
346_28_04_10_7_57_13.jpg

obviously the paint scheme is a wiff, but its the aircraft that I am interested in.

I am sure that I have seen this project before but I cant remember where. From what I can remember it bears a passing similarity to the cutlass. Its two jets are semi recessed into the leading edge of the wing roots and can be vectored to provide some vertical thrust for landing.

But I cant remember where I last saw it or find any other drawings of it! It may been that the designation has been made up as part of the wiff.

Can anyone help me locate this project and some drawings of it? Or am I going mad?

:)

Regards

BSP Jet Bombers. Its the Westland entry for the requirement that produced the Buccaneer.

Hi,

There is some info on this design project in British Secret Jet Bombers since 1949 (Tony Buttler), Pages 69-72.

Some information can be found, too, in "Buccaneer : The Last British Bomber" by Tim Laming.
