  1. Lance Wade, American in the R.A.F.

    Interesting story ... http://fly.historicwings.com/2013/01/wildcat-wade/
  2. Airfix 1/48 Junkers Ju87B-1 Stuka

    Yes, plus the PR.XVI fuselage, canopy and cockpit parts.
  3. Very nicely done - those masks worked a treat, and you've drooped the elevators. One point though, crowbars were not painted red until after the war. During the war they were usually silver (steel) or Interior Green and occasionally black.

    I assume it was one complete sprue as the following parts were missing ... 131 - upper wing 132 - upper wing 133 - nacelle half 134 - nacelle half 135 - nacelle half 136 - nacelle half 137 - nacelle top 138 - nacelle top 147 - drop tank half 148 - drop tank half 149 - drop tank half 150 - drop tank half

    I'm surprised Airfix couldn't help. I managed to mess up some of the decals on a 1/48 109 and they replaced them free of charge, and only last week they replaced a complete missing sprue from the 1/48 Mosquito PR.XVI again, free of charge.
  6. Diorama-"Return to England"

    Superb! Very clever effect.
  7. Westland whirlwind 1/48

    I like it ... Don't think the weathering is that OTT to be honest!

    Found this on the net ...

    This might help ...

    The variation in the patterns was to avoid the possibility of a regimented appearance when the aircraft were lined up next to each other. Once it was realised that aircraft should be further dispersed, even having their own individual pens, the different patterns became unnecessary, and were discontinued 26th April 1941, before Ocean Grey replaced the Dark Earth. Manufacturers were told to choose either the A or B pattern and apply that to all aircraft. Most seem to have chosen the A pattern.
