Presume the roundels are a hint? Second trials are better, and she is a looker. To make half that in the Orkneys with no apparent help from clubs proves the guy is one incredible person! Do any of our Shetland/Orkney members know anything so we can contact him for more info. Perhaps he could teach US a thing or two!  ::)

Whoever you are sir, I salute you.
To build such a craft in isolation is a triumph.
Any more details available Chris.

Nick, The white craft is a MK 1 Osprey 5 with a smaller duct.
That craft was basically a stretched Osprey 3 which had rear shutters to close off thrust and hopefully provide a degree of reverse thrust, which it didn't!
When we did the M1 Osprey 5 version we kept the outer duct on purely for aesthetic reasons and a convenient place to put the revised brake flaps..
Sorry if your coughie has got cold.

See, it's so suggestive that the actual word has been filtered out. And that was a kids programme!
