Rapier-powered Hawker P.1121 by Steve Bage
Yet another fine design from the pen (or should that be mouse?) of Steve Bage. The full size aircraft would have been capable of Mach 2 had it been finished, but it was axed in the 1950's defence cuts
when the prototype was about 85% complete. Still, at least you can now get a model of it into the air!
The duck egg green colour scheme is based on that carried by the full size mock up, which you can
The prototype came out at 25.1 grams, and has flown successfully on Rapier L2 power. Try to save weight at the rear because the model proved to need a fair amount of noseweight.
Also, you might want to consider adding a little dihedral, as the model is a bit marginal as regards lateral stability.

Steve drew the original plan on A3 sheets, and if your printer can cope with the larger
paper size, this would be the recommended route. He has also managed to split up the plan to fit on A4 sheets for those of us can only use small paper sizes.
The plan should print off full size if you set your printer settings to A4 paper, even if it has got different
sized paper in the printer. If in doubt, check against the 100 mm scales on the plan sheets.
