Vickers 161 [1] został zaprojektowany w odpowiedzi na specyfikację Ministerstwa Lotnictwa F.29 / 27.
Projekt myśliwca przechwytującego który w kadlubie miał posiadac działko o kalibrze 37 mm
z zapasem naboi 23szt
Brońzamonowana byla pod kątem 45 stopni lub więcej powyżej poziomu, tak, że samolot podlatywał poniżej bombowca
lub sterowca i z tej pozycji prowadził ostrzał . W czasie II wojny światowej
Luftwaffe wykorzystywała podobne podejście, o nazwie Schräge Musik. To taka ciekawostka

Kolejny modelik skończony ,tym razem dziwoląg z lat 30- tych .Model żywiczny .Niestety kratownicy nie ma w zestawie ,trzeba sobie radzić samemu ,ja zastosowałem rurki miedziane i pręty plastikowe o średnicy 1mm.całość malowana gunze C8
Model nie dla nowicjuszy. Malowanie ze względu na specyficzne umieszczenie silnika i śmigła ,należy wykonać kiedy model jest jeszcze w dwóch częściach to znaczy kadłub i kratownica osobno .Po pomalowaniu wklejamy silnik osłonę silnika i na sztyfcie
montujemy śmigło .Dopiero wtedy montujemy tyna część kadłuba z kratownicą i usterzeniem . I to tyle .teraz galeria tej "paskudy "

Beautiful build Ryszard, you have done a wonderful job once again.
Seriously that would have to be one of the strangest aircraft I've seen. Somebody actually sat down and came up with that design and put it on paper. Wow.

Cheers, D

Amazingly ugly aircraft. From the gun placement I would imagine a night fighter. But then again it is a British design from the 1930's. (when they produced some UGLY aircraft, in the earth rejection principle of flight:)

The model is beautiful; finish, rigging, look, presentation. Wonderful to behold.

Though it does look like something out of a Buck Roger's movie serial.

Beautiful model

Hi Ryszard

Excellent stuff! A great build of quite a daunting kit. I bought it to Review a good long while ago and haven't plucked up the courage to tackle it yet. ;

All the best

A wonderful model of an interesting esoteric subject. I never heard of this aircraft before. Very well presented too.
