i suppose thats enough groveling airtac i forgive you. now back to the original question its a Hawker but what? i still think its along the lines of a Fury/Tempest/Typhoon/TT
No, none of those. It is Hawker though, and you're on the right track. I knew this would be a toughy! ;D ;D

Alrighty Airtac. But I have a question: You get the beer ::drinking:: ::drinking::, but why break with tradition and no strippers :-[ :-[? And why is there a fiddler on the roof? Doesn't he know he could fall down, and break his fiddle? ::thinking:: Remember the strippers are as much for you, as for us.

Franz, I think it looks somewhat like F-29(?) Retaliator, main character of popular PC game...

No, it's not a Grumman prototype, but a Lockheed . . .
