  1. Where was Lemon Yellow used in the RAF?

    I'm a firm believer in knowing what should be there, then interpreting it your own way. In a lot of cases, I'm simply fascinated by the colour and markings used, and it has little to do with actual modelling
  2. Where was Lemon Yellow used in the RAF?

    Looking up my references, I may be mistaken - it seems the colour used (On some aircraft at least) was BS381C 315 Grapefruit
  3. HMS Invincible Air-Group 1982

    I never managed to get round to joining 9although I have a few books), so this will be fascinating
  4. HMS Invincible Air-Group 1982

    Didn't realise they were still around!
  5. Where was Lemon Yellow used in the RAF?

    This was the 1990s low biz air defence greys scheme
  6. Where was Lemon Yellow used in the RAF?

    I think it was used for yellow warning markings on other low viz schemes too (e.g Phantoms) and I've seen reference to it in other Defence Standards
  7. RAF Dishforth 1948/9

    This one caught my eye - appears to be a camouflaged Dakota in post war markings
  8. Malta 1949

    Thanks - I'd seen some of them but not all! very interesting stuff!
  9. 11 Sqn Brisfit Markings Sep-Nov 1918?

    Don't have a copy, but this would be my first place to look. I do have the specials and can look later. https://www.windsockdatafilespecials.co.uk/115-bristol-fighter-226-p.asp
  10. Malta 1949

    The G was a C/D with the gun nose. This one was converted back to glass nose
  11. Malta 1949

    Just catching up with this one - the RAF had two other B-25Gs, FR208 (also at AAEE) and 42-65094, which was used in the Middle east as a transport
  12. Airfix B-25 C/D 1/72 expected November 2017

    Sprue shots revealed: https://www.airfix.com/uk-en/news/workbench/new-b-25-mitchell-prepares-for-take-off Interestingly, very specifically a C/D - no obvious provision for a G or a PJB-1. The side windows are interesting as they may enable a later version with bulged side windows, but also make masking easier! (Thinks - did late C/Ds have the gun turret moved forward and the tail gun fitted, or was that just PBJ-1D?))

  14. Airfix Messerschmitt Me 262 A-1a Schwalbe 1/72 Released

    The problem with some of the Airfix kits is they tried to be innovative in design and not ale what went before. So for example they put tooling joins along mating surfaces, presuming modellers would prepare these before assembly
