Wow that's fast work! You've made my day and I totally agree with the elegance of the original BOAC livery. The BEA scheme is an added bonus.

Amazing well done (and I like the top one most, but that just probably shows my age or lack of it)

BOAC and 'Landor' livery are the best imho.

Great work with liveries!

Actually I was thinking of 757, but I have already too much to do, so feel free to do it. I'll be happy to see it done by You. :)
Btw. if You would like doing 787-9 (longer version), then I wouldn't have anything against it too (especially if it would come together with two real-life liveries, to be paired with two real-life 787-8 liveries already in the archive ;) ).

Some minor updates to the Ishtar family including a shiny new two-seater. Some specifications have also changed upon further reflection. I might get around to doing some whiffs eventually!

McMillan P.1100 Ishtar
The Ishtar is the first fifth generation combat aircraft designed wholly in Tol Galen to fly. Its origins can be traced back to the beginning of the JSF program which it was a competitor in. The proof of concept / technology demonstrator (P.1099) first flew in August 2001 and made numerous test flights to gather data to refine the design. By 2008 there were four prototype airframes flying (2X-MMZA, ZB, ZC and ZD) around about this time AAe got involved as a development partner rather than a contractor resulting in the construction of 2X-AAZZ to further develop the design. In 2009 2X-MMZC was performing high alpha tests when the pilot reported a dual flame-out, despite efforts to recover into controlled flight the aircraft entered a flat spin at around 12,000ft and crashed into a forest resulting in the death of the test pilot. Despite the loss of one of the most experienced test pilots in Tol Galen and the loss of an airframe, development continued until in 2012 McMillan declared that the aircraft was ready for full scale production.
By 2014 improvements to the BW-130s cemented the ability for the Ishtar to maintain supercruise under certain conditions indefinitely, throughout 2014 a raft of improvements were floated out including Conformal tanks and weapon pods culminating in flight testing of the two-seat Ishtar and Sea Ishtar prototypes.

The Ishtar is a twin engined, trapezoidal winged aircraft incorporating low-observability design features.
The Ishtar like the Redcap makes use of the now fully developed engine produced by Babcock-Weisz known as the Enfield. The engine is a development of their earlier Hippogriff.
Whilst no orders have yet been penned McMillan remain confident that the future will bring orders due to the fact that currently the only real competition it has is the F-22 with the F-35 still having problems.
