I'm really looking forward to all the versions :)

Great drawing Hood! Fantastic depiction of what was a fantastic aircraft :)

Here is the Australian Sentinel tank from World War 2 that was discontinued after 65 were built. The first - AC1 - was designed as a cruiser tank with a 2pdr main gun. When this was proving to be increasingly ineffective as an anti-tank weapon, a 25pdr gun was installed in a slightly larger turret to create the better armed and armoured AC3 'Thunderbolt'. The final version didn't go past prototype stage but was designed to mount the 17pdr anti-tank gun in a much larger turret (a concept tested by mounting two 25pdr guns side by side in the turret and firing them simultaneously) - I couldn't find any pictures of what it might have looked like aside from the prototype so I used some artistic license and based it on the AC3 hull with a larger turret.
None of the tanks saw action and the program was terminated in 1943.

Of course, the other great lost design; and the dermise of both signalled the end of independent design in both countries :cry:

Yes I was at Cosford on Monday last week. An awesome beast and so sad to thing of what could have been.

Anyhow here is one of the pre-production machines and one of the first batch of production TSRs in squadron service in the early low-level camo scheme devised by BAC in 1964.
