A prototype but one that saw significant service.

Sorry, a one-off prototype that saw significant service.

Cockpit view

Looks a bit like a Beaufighter but perhaps too large so maybe a Brigand?

I say again. A one-off. There only ever was one of these.
And you're all way out on the timeline.

Come on Sycamore, you have got to up the stakes a bit.

Sycamore, you're asbolutely right about the SRN1 cockpit having two pilots seats, but it isn't the answer.

I deduce that SLB has it by "upping" the stakes...

Here's SRN1 looking vety 'experimental'.

If SLB is going to hang back perhaps Sycamore will look at this again...

I will hover around a bit more. Sycamore did the hard work so he may take it.

dixi has it - the SRN2.
I thought the wipers on the side screens would give its nature away instantly, and there aren't many to choose from!
So close sycamore, just rather too many engines!

Thanks for the help with the SRN2.
This picture is from a book I was given when I was about 6 or 7 and made me want to be a Flight Engineer. I made it when I was 37 and had 20 years in the middle seat.
