I was wondering whether Amera do, or have plans to make, the types of parachutes that were/are used to arrest jet aircraft when landing :?:
I personally would be interested in those for V-bombers and Lightnings. I don't know whether there were general types or ones specific to particular aircraft, but I'd think that there would be a good interest in this type of product from aircraft modellers :idea:

That's a great idea Ratch! They would certainly liven up a diorama.

I've often given thought to how a Vulcan 'chute could be fabricated, I was thinking of laying up thin fabric over a hemispherical former and making it rigid with white glue, but vac forming is the obvious way to go if you're geared up.
