BHC SR.N6 - 1/12 scale

I wanted to make a model at a scale of 1/12, but the frames on the full sized craft were pitched at 29", which did not scale nicely when using a rule with 1/16" graduations. I could not find a rule with 1/12" markings. I decided to scale at 2mm to the inch, or 1:12.7.

The thrust motor was mounted on beams at the end of the nacelle, directly driving the propellor. This gave good performance, but detracted from the appearance.
