Very nice Clave!
Excellent!!! Beautiful plane.
Absolutely! Very nice profile Clave. Lovely aeroplane and very "identifiable"
Just some tweaking on colours and added a drop tank...
OK, I am happier with the fin now, and I added the shadow on the drop tank - so it's time to hunt down some more of these to do...
Oh, and can some kind mod change the title to Westland instead of Westlan..
827 NAS, with a red spinner and dragon mark on the nose:
Excellent Clave...still trying to decide whether it is a weird looking aircraft or not......
Trust me, its weird.
New one on me...Looks fast...
Looks a hell of a lot faster than it actually was.
Yep, the intended engine (the Clyde) was stopped in development by Rolls-Royce, and the Armstrong Siddeley Python was used instead - In some ways it was a dead-end as everyone was developing jet aircraft, but it was good for the 'learning curve' on later turboprops...
It did see combat - in the Suez Crisis of 1956...
More here: Westland Wyvern
OK, here's my last couple of versions:
The first one is the full-blown Suez Crisis one with invasion stripes and a full 16 rocket load, circa 1956.
The second one has a torpedo... circa 1954.
Yep....weird aircraft! but still great profiles,Well done Clave.
