  1. Blackburn Shark 755 Sqn FAA 1939/40

    Ive read somewhere that Pavlas KI30 Ann canopy may fit?
  2. Blackburn Shark 755 Sqn FAA 1939/40

    Great stuff thanks guys. The Three bladed prop wouldnt be a problem but the greenhouse is. I heard somewhere that the Pavla Dinah may be a good match but im not paying Hannants postage for a £1.60 item!
  3. Blackburn Shark 755 Sqn FAA 1939/40

    Ah thats helpful. Ive only got the older version of the book that only shows a 755 sqn Seamew. At least that confirms a wings aviation profile ( I am always dubiousof those with a back up photo)
  4. Blackburn Shark 755 Sqn FAA 1939/40

    Hi, Im currently working on the old Frog Blackburn Shark and intend to finish it in the colours of 755 Sqn FAA at Worthy Down 1939/1940. Apart from a couple of profile drawings online there seems to be little or no info. Im torn between the pre war colours and the Temperate sea scheme. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance
  5. 4000lb bombs carried by early Halifax bombers

    So one can assume that the photo of MP-L with the cookie being loaded was done so for publicity purposes then. the Haynes manual also states that 400 of them were dropped along with one solitary 8000lb in 1942
  6. Evening all Ive just completed the Matchbox version of the Halifax I in the markings of tye aircraft flown by Christpher Cheshire ( MP-L). Now as for the bomb load , I was going for generic 500lb GP bombs. However the Haynes manual for the Halifax has a photo of the same aircraft being loaded with an early 4000lb cookie. Now I am aware that up to 2 were carried in 1942 by the early Halifax and that the bomb doors wouldnt quite shut, But Cheshires MP-L was shot down in August 41. Info I have found is conflicting as to when they were first carried. Can anyone shed any light? Thanks in advance
  7. 734 Sqn FAA Whitley VII

    Curiouser and curiouser. Thanks SeaHawk. Is there any chance of uploading a shot of the photo as I cant get hold of the book?
  8. 734 Sqn FAA Whitley VII

  9. 734 Sqn FAA Whitley VII

    Thats great Seahawk many thanks. I take it these were in the bomber command scheme and without the YAGI radar fitting.I work at Worthy Down and I am still trying imagine Whitlleys taking off from an "uphill" grass strip!
  10. 734 Sqn FAA Whitley VII

    Has anyone seen any photos of the Whitley VIIs used by 734 sqn FAA at Worthy Down in 1944?. There is apparently one knocking around somewhere . Id like to do my Airfix GRVII as one of the 16 used by 734 whilst at Worthy Down as flying classrooms. Im curious as to what colour scheme and markings they would have had. Thanks in advance
  11. Javelin FAW7 help

    Antii thats pukka gen! Just the job. I read somewhere that the 7 didnt get firestreaks till later.Just found a good pic of a 64 sqn Mk7 at Duxford and can see what you mean about the wing leading edge and missing bullet fairings. Many thanks
  12. Javelin FAW7 help

    Thanks for the vote of confidence guys. After doing a bit of digging I see that the wing leading edge is slightly different .back to doing things the old way back in the Frog/Matchbox days
  13. Javelin FAW7 help

    Ive happened accross a Mistercraft repop of the Plastyk Javelin.. Now, apart from consigning it to the bin, what would I need to do to turn it into a passable FAW7?. Does anyone have any decent MK7 photos or be able to point me in the right direction?
  14. Short Stirling wing cell bomb doors
