The 318 Merlin looks like an excellent design. A pity it never made it into production.

Nice drawings, I do wonder if Supermarine were pushing the limits of what they were capable of with the bomber programme? Still it was a nice looking design, but probably not the workhorse Avro managed to create via the troubled Manchester.

A replacement for one of many images wiped out by the Photobucket plague and something new.

[ img ]
Hawker P.1062

A Hawker P.1062 in RAF use with 92 Squadron at RAF Linton-on-Ouse, 1954. The serial and colour-scheme come from a batch of Mutual Aid F-86 Sabres.

The Hawker P.1062 was a 1947 study for a swept-wing P.1040 (Sea Hawk), with a T-tail and a 6,200lb thrust Rolls-Royce Tay (later also with afterburning) and armed with four 20mm cannon. Max speed would have been 690mph. It was the beginning of the studies that led to the P.1081 swept-wing prototype flown in 1950 and this design is arguably the Hawker Hunter's granddad.

Hawker Siddeley HS.802

Hawker Siddeley HS.802 XV228 at RAF Lyneham circa 1980. Note that in the real world the C-130 Hercules fleet was centrally serviced and the aircraft carried no squadron markings. Probably the same would apply to the HS.802 fleet too.

The HS.802 was Hawker Siddeley's attempt to keep the HS.681 design alive to fulfill OR.351 by the simple expedient of fitting the wings and engines of the HS.801 Nimrod onto the fuselage to save R&D and manufacturing costs. Its estimated performance still bettered the C-130 Hercules for the intended role but it was too late and like its HS.681 forebear, development fell victim to the Labour government cancellations of 1964.

SARO P.192 Queen
[ img ]
Probably the largest aircraft to almost be constructed. SARO got far in the design and even design of support facilities, before the project was cancelled. The design customer was P&O Cruises, looking for a 1000 passenger flying liner. Painted in a tentative 1960's P&O airline scheme as the "Ad Astra", although it would certainly have lent itself to some exciting colour schemes if it had been constructed and continued operating into the 90's.
