FS2004 SUPERMARINE 224 FS 2004 (1)

SUPERMARINE 224 FS 2004. MODEL FSDS DRAWING AND TEXTURE by JRLUCARINY Supermarine 224 Issue of Specification F. 7 30 in 1930 for a single-seat fighter led Supermarine to build its first aircraft intended for this role. Designed under the direction of Reginald J Mitchell as Type (or Drawing) 224, Supermarines proposal was one of three to gain Air Ministry backing for prototype construction (along with Westland and Blackburn), an order for one aircraft being placed in 1932. Based on experience gained with the Supermarine float seaplanes designed for participation in the Schneider Trophy contests, the Type 224 was of all-metal construction with fabric covering of the wing aft of the mainspar and of the tail surfaces. Its 600hp Rolls-Royce Goshawk II engine had an evaporative cooling system, w

First flown on 19 February 1934, the Type 224 failed to achieve its performance estimates, and, after a prolonged sojourn at the RAE Farnborough, went to the A&AEE and eventually ended its days as a gunnery target.

After their success with the the high speed S Series of monoplane racers, Mitchells team thought that designing a fighter to Air Ministry specification F. 7 30 would be a relatively simple affair. The design was also hampered by the evaporative cooling design of the 660 horse power Rolls Royce Goshawk engine. The fighter contract was eventually awarded to the Gloster SS 37 (Gladiator) biplane because of its climb rate advantage over the monoplane designs. In 1934 the Supermarine 224 design was subsequently cleaned up and succesive specifications sought from the air ministry to cover the refinements, eventually leading to the superb Type 300 that followed. http: www. k5054. com #type224 Supermarine 224 DRAWINGS http: www. aviastar. org pictures england supermarine224. gif More airplanes in: http: www. jrlucariny. com Mai 2010 Show less...
