I'm back with, yes you guessed it another Canberra , This time it's Canberra. HAPR.9 WH793. The HAPR.9 was what would be called today a "proof of concept" airframe not a true PR.9 prototype. In a way it was English Electric response to the work GL Martin were doing with the RB.57D. Although it had problems with drag from the deeper cord inboard of the engines it ultimately resulted in the very successful PR.9. Apart from the pilots seat, canopy and rudder this is all Airfix. The nose comes from a B.2 kit. The increased cord inboard of the engines was made using plastic card and filler. For a WIP see HAPR.9 WIP Thanks for looking.
