This interesting exhibit is in the Fleet Air Arm Museum. It survived service in WW1 and was then given to the Imperial War Museum - where it was damaged in WWII! Unfortunately it's in a glass case and surrounded by lots of lights which makes it rather hard to sketch.

I love the shapes of some of the machines in the Fleet Air Arm Museum - some of the best are the early helicopters. This was a quick-ish Sharpie marker sketch (colour added in Photoshop later)
Found a bit of time to sketch the fantastic work that's been done on BLOODHOUND SSC's upper chassis recently. This part will house the EJ200 jet (from a Typhoon). It's constructed with aluminium ribs and titanium stringers. The shaped titanium skins are now being drilled ready for gluing and riveting.
