1/144 DH Sea Vixen FAW.2 (Preview) - Miniwings

1/144 DH Sea Vixen FAW.2 (Preview) - Miniwings
Not that I am biased, but it's good to see a great british aircraft from the 1950-60s.

The aircraft was designated the DH.110 by de Havilland; a twin-engined all-weather fighter, development of which started in 1946 following discussions with the Admiralty of its requirements for jet all-weather fighters.[1] De Havilland's design shared the twin-boom layout of the de Havilland Vampire, had an all-metal structure and featured swept wings. It was to be powered by two Rolls-Royce Avon engines, each capable of 7,500 lbf (33 kN) of thrust, which would allow the aircraft to be supersonic in a shallow dive.[1] The DH 110 was the first British two seat combat aircraft to achieve supersonic speed.[2] Armament was to be four 30 mm ADEN cannons.

I would be great to see a Venom or Vampire too...
