Cheers to that, eh!
´I'm BAAAAACK! That being said, I might have to disappear again for an extended time in a month or two, but for the moment I'm at your disposal.
Canada is a nation that has the moral and civic duty to aid those in need with all that of our wealth and might that can be brought to bear towards this great and noble undertaking upon which we are engaged, for we are more than a nation, for we are the Great Arsenal of Democracy.”
Why on earth someone had decided that this was the right unit to be given an aircraft that was at least a generation behind what they'd had previously was beyond him also but it was none of his concern. He was here for...some reason and until he was told to return to Canada he would sit here and observe how his latest product fared in the tropics.
“Well, from the sound of it they managed to assemble the engine and the fuel feed system properly at least.”
 For a short time I was tempted to ret-con the Mustang in as a Carrier plane. The tests the American did test the Mustang for their Carriers were successful but between safety concerns (apparently the Mustang is rather temperamental when you fly in a Carrier approach profile) and the availability of strips on Iwo Jima and elsewhere killed the project.
Great! As someone who suffers from terminal bone-idleness I definitely need a cheap cleaner. When can you start? - That should teach him to make hostages to fortune like that.
Seriously good to hear you're active on the TL again. Hopefully everything OK?
In this case probably very true. Britain will have a larger industrial base but is limited by supplies, blackout and being in the front line. Canada is far enough from the front and rich enough in terms of manpower, resources and space to produce a hell of a lot of material. I suspect a nearby state which is probably producing more military goods might feel a bit unhappy it is implicitly being called undemocratic, which will sting even more because its true.
Presuming its far enough away from any actually combat that they can do tests on the a/c performance in warmer conditions without any run in with enemy forces. Also gives the convicts some experience at operating and supporting the plane in a less tension situation that combat.
The advantage of non-verbal communications. This could come across as either a jokey aside on the race between the two hanger teams or a snide jibe at their abilities. I'm presuming the former however since he didn't get a 4p one.
Think you're right here. Like the Spit its a bit too fragile to be a good carrier a/c and too likely to waste a lot of resources and reduce its main advantages in trying to square the circle. Getting a TTL version of something like the Corsair, purposely designed for carrier operation is much better.
