  1. Are you considering producing reproducing the Fighter wind tunnel models for the incurable enthusiast? If so, approximately how much?

    1. We can let you know a likely price for a Fighter wind tunnel model when our first one is ready. Work is well underway, and we’ll see progress on it at the prop-makers’ next week.

      1. Thank you, Richard, might you have (or could obtain) body blueprints of significant Bristols from an aerodynamic perspective such as the Fighter, 450 and 403/401, suitable for framing. I am asking because a wind tunnel model might be rather dear.

      2. At present we don’t yet have these (and when we do, digitisation and zooming down will be quite a costly challenge, as the blueprints are A0 size.) We are determined to acquire all the factory blueprints from the liquidators. This is held up for some legal shenanigans.
        But the future lies in digitisation- and that’s our plan.
