Silly Week 2019



I guess you're all familiar with the Bristol Blenheim. But how would it look if the Bristol designers enjoyed a beer with Dr Richard Vogt, designer of the asymmetric Blohm und Voss BV 141? I mean both designs date back to about the same age. Roles of the BV141 and Blenheim only differ slightly. So how about a modified design of the Bristol Type 142 into an asymetric Blenheim Mk1? The Bristol Type 142M-2.

This is actually a reworked new tool Airfix Blenheim Mk1. In the process I used a Noratlas boom, SM 79 wing (right one only), nose cone and turret from an Amiot 143 and some styrene sheet for the tailplane.

Enjoy the photos.
