    Default Vickers Type559

    An update on an old one. The Vickers type559 was an interesting design. Two jet motors located vertically one on top of the other and a small rocket motor on each side of the fuselage. Was to fly Mach 2.5 but was never built. Also an interesting location for the missiles.

    Wow! You really captured the metal brilliantly. It's shiny without looking like chrome.

    Odd if you ask me but then no one did so no comment. Beautiful work my friend, I like the metal work very much, sometimes i find myself thinking I would like to see some color on the landscape below, but since this is an old one that may explan that.
