Of note- in the case of K4, the name is written 'Blue Bird'.

The trouble with K4 is you'd be stuck with using a Meteor engine again, as per K3. Plenty of them about, though.

Could always see if R-R heritage would give us the drawings so we could resurrect the engine too. That would be fun.

isn't that many Meteor's around these days Mike, not good running ones anyway.

thing with Crusader was.......it was a shockingly poor design, so much so it killed its pilot at a (relative) slow speed

Bugger that! Dangerous bloody great big thing. Nooo thank you!

Rich, there's more Meteors than 'R' engines, at least!
