Okay, before I buggered off to Vanuatu for a holiday I was drawing the Martin-Baker MB2 Fighter (real design, one prototype, monoplane with fixed landing gear -a version with retractable landing gear was planned but never built- powered by a 1000hp Napier Dagger) and started wondering what if Martin-Baker decided to play to the aircraft's selling point (simple construction allowing use of semi-skilled labour and non-aviation engineering firms, something of an emergency fighter in other words) but moved onto an engine which wasn't so horribly complex and right at the end of it's development spiral...

Doubt it'd have the developmental potential of the Spit or Hurricane, but as an emergency design for home use and a simple enough airframe to farm out to be produced in the dominions, well, could be useful.

Edit: Currently too lazy to bung marking on it... besides, I think details of the wings are a bit out of whack, so revision will be needed.

A very interesting idea and certainly one that could have taken off had it been around when the need was the greatest for fighters. Even so that shortage was probably too short lived to warrant setting up lines for a new fighter. Looks pretty neat though, although the fin on the early Bakers always look too small to me.

I could potentially see the RAAF going for a design like this, certainly a more capable creature than their Wirraway. The problem there, of course, is engine production. I think the Wasp (forget the exact version) was the only engine on hand at the time for production, which I think vastly influenced things. Certainly if the ball had gotten rolling earlier, I can see the RAAF adopting it.

Bronies are like the Forsworn. Everyone agrees that they are a problem but nobody wants to expend the energy rooting them out.

A modernization of the ZSU-57-2 I did for Neustaat. To keep costs down, it uses as many ZSU-23-4 components as possible.
