    Alright, this is going to be a little harder than the FAA request, me thinks. I want a list of the British prototypes that were either TINY in service or didn't see service at all. BUT - there must have been a model built...no paper THOUGHTS...aircraft that really existed but never saw service..basically.

    Thank yah, in advance.

    We can start with the Bristol Brigand.

    There were a few of those built though, weren't there?

    And thank you for the reply! I don't need a massive list all at once. Anyone with just some freakin' British prototypes they know of would be nice.

    All I have at the moment is the Gloster F.5/34 and Miles 39B.

    Hmmm...well, I'll change it. It couldn't have seen service to be in this list. And there has to be at least ONE picture of the plane in question.

    Thank you. After this I'll be going after the RAF (I've already done the FAA). I know that's not ALL that served in the FAA but I need at least four pictures when it's in service (one only need for prototypes)...and most of 'em will be shown in the RAF folder anyway.

    I am basically doing the same thing. I did this already with the Luftwaffe and then I want to do the RAF next.

    Westland Welkin probably fits your bill. Built as a prototype but didn't enter service. Looked like a Whirlwind on steroids.
    Blackburn Firbrand may fit your bill. Only 12 were built but they were issued to a squadron.

    Cool, the Bristol 133 sure looks meaty. The Bristol Brigand reminds me of the Beech UC-45.

    Nice pics Wildcat! The Spiteful and the Welkin look cool and the Firebrand looks like a bit of a beast.

    another underrated aircraft: The Miles. This was made of spare parts lieing around the constructing facility, and it still out performed the early Spitfires and Hurricanes.

    if you mean the M.20, she didn't have allot of development potential, she was developed soley to fight off the threat of the BoB, the battle was all but over by the time she was ready...........
