Finally calmed down. I've been working all my SB off a USB flash drive, and managed to drop my laptop with the drive installed ... and physically broke the drive.

Great job BB1987. Are you going to complete the turbine Elations and military variants as well?

As an idea of it's massive size for the 1920's, it's wingspan of 48 metres was almost 5 metres g...

Saro P.192 Queen

Planned 1000 passenger giant flying boat for P&O, so really she what better place for her than a nautical forum.
I originally made this in FD scale, but she would have been so enormous I had to see how she'd have looked in standard shipbucket scale.

SARO P.192 Queen https://i.imgur.com/ZJDzOH6.png 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 t...

What more could you want in an aircraft? Like a Constellation on floats!

There are still another couple of Avro designs that I couldn't illustrate, because after nearly 75 years there doesn't appear to be enough information to work out decent schematics, the superbombers just boggle the imagination. Avro 686 - high altitude Lancaster replacement - separate from the high ...

Avro 716 Shackleton Mk.3 https://i.imgur.com/5XvVjpl.png The initial design for the Shackleton Mk.3 was for an aircraft fitted with the Napier Nomad engine. As Napier dropped development of the very complex Nomad 1 and embarked on the less radical but still extremely efficient Nomad 2, this engine ...

Avro 696 Shackleton https://i.imgur.com/F9xH6vT.png The Lincoln ASR.III eventually morphed into a new design as the Shackleto...
