Westland Whirlwind – Reverse engineering project

We are pleased to be playing a small part in the re-creation of this superb World War II twin-engined fighter bomber.

Essentially our role is 3D scanning two models that were used by Westland for aerodynamic testing. The subsequent data has been post-processed so the CAD crew the project team already has on board can create the body surface in conjunction with the plans that already exist.

We wish the Whirlwind Fighter project team well and should you wish to know anything further or make a donation then please check out their superb website here.
