Default Peregrine Interceptor

I wasn't sure whether this should have gone in the UFO page or here, but i guess because of its link to the Falcon (Goshawk) and Hawk this works.
Another non canon design based on the idea that the jump from the SHADO Interceptor to the Hawk is a bit of a big one without something in between (Hurricane to Gloster meteor?)
So i present the mid period Peregrine Interceptor, longer range than the original SHADO fighter but not as long range, or as heavily armed, as the Hawk which is a main reason why it was superseded by that loveliest of creations.
Opinions both good and bad welcome.

It's really nice but we are going to run out of ornithology at this rate.

By September I predict we will all be looking at tits.

Very interesting - you've managed to incorporate key elements from both without it looking 'patched together'. I'm liking the chunky look too, like a prototype built using easily fabricated shapes.

The skid struts are perhaps a little heavy?

Presenting the Great Red Tit Attack ship..ok, maybe not *L

Thanks for the comments. i agree about the landing skids being a bit thick, but on the scale it is (just under 2 inches as opposed to the Goshawks 5.5 inches) they have to be thicker to print, they should look more proportionate as a model for some reason things usually do
