  1. Late war Mosquito FBVI: advice sought

    Hi Graham 617 squadron lost a Mk.VI on Wainfleet Sands probably experimental in low level bombing and marking raids originated by Leonard Cheshire.
  2. 1/72 B-24J 15th AAF in NMF decals: do they exist?

    Kagero I think have a decal book on USAAF B-25s based on Corsica in various scales on one sheet.
  3. Late war Mosquito FBVI: advice sought

    Later builds had strengthened wings for dive bombing and external ordnance loads. From a modeling angle this will probably affect panel lines .
  4. RCAF Operations Record Books

    Great stuff thanks for posting.

  6. Going to Prague

    Kbely museum is a great place lots to see and nice dioramas on the history of Czech aviation and aircraft production. Need good camera memory card.Excellent little shop and refreshments. Metro is quick and inexpensive.
  7. Googled this September 3, 1964: C-130B T-1307 of the Indonesian Air Force and operated by 31 Squadron crashed into the Straits of Malacca whilst evading interception by a Royal Air Force Javelin FAW.9 of 60 Squadron from RAF Tengah. This was the first non-U.S. Hercules hull loss. Fabulous informative build for anybody building a Gloster Javelin kit.

  9. 608 Sqd Mosquito XVI / Barry Blunt book - info request?

    Dave My girl friend lives near Cambridge. I will make a journey soon to view the Barry Blunt book for you at the Downham Visitor Centre and get scans of any 608 Sq Mossies and hopefully a listing of aircraft and crews on the last Kiel raid. I will also contact the guy on the mossie forum to see if he can help.

  11. 608 Sqd Mosquito XVI / Barry Blunt book - info request?

    Hello Rabbit Leader . Just come across this thread. I too was after the 608 Sdqn book by Barry Blunt but out of print and hard to get. However a kind soul on the mossie.org forum sent me the books listing of Mosquito's used by the squadron. Now in the photograph of V Victor notice the camouflage extending down the cowlings and rear fuselage which was used on Percival built aircraft in the PF serial range. The only V Victor coded aircraft I have is PF483. which came from 128 squadron in 25 March 1945 and flew 15 operations . It went to 16 OTU on 01 Sept 1945. The 4,000lb Cookie bomb trolley is coded F2D from the Lancaster Squadron 635 based on the airfield for Lancaster D-Dog I suppose there was an exchange of ground equipment. You need a copy of "Strike Hard" RAF Downham Market and its Squadrons" by John B Hilling Alan Sutton Publishing 1995. There are a couple of Mosquito nose shots with dull red codes and long-range wing tanks. Hope this is of assistance to you glad too help. this may be of interest https://www.downhamweb.co.uk/ww2-raf-airman-returns-downham-market-70-years/

    K.I.S.S principle XF-62 Olive Drab uppers and XF-53 Neutral Grey for undersides. Olive drab is so variable.
