Speaking of F4s, I was at our neighbouring AirForce base who are now Typhoon operators. Previously they flew F4s and before that Starfighters and before that the Sabre D. All nice subjects for Jetex/Rapier/Tendera.
Here's a inspirational pic of their gate guardian.
Pete only drew up his designs roughly, scribbling over published 3-views so there is no 'plan'.
Above: two of Pete Smart's unique models. The SR 53 (left) and F D. 1 (right) date from 2003.
Also, I seem to remember it was very twitchy if overpowered and I only saw Pete fly it on a couple of occasions. He did find the perfect motor for it - an L-2 LT and we saw at least one wonderful flight:

Pete was (and is) a prolific maker of unique models but no longer flies jets (sensible chap)!
The F.D. 1 is a prototype definitely worth revisiting (we have stocks of Rapier L-2 LT motors). I can supply a good 3-view of the F.D. 1, but Daniel will have to design a model himself - which might slow him down a bit!
