  1. Fairey Fulmar I or II?

    I am new to this site and wonder if anyone can help with a definitive answer to my query. Many references seem to imply that the defining element of the Fairey Fulmar II are the additional side air inlets, yet evidence from pilots logs and Serial Number Lists show that many of the aircraft delivered and flown as Fulmar IIs did not have the addtional air inlets. I would love to know for certain as I am trying to complete versions of models of Fulmars N4074 and X8812 both of which were flown by my father and both of which were delivered and flown as Fulmar IIs. Special Hobby / Eduard / MPM versions show images of these aircraft but refer to N4074 as a Fulmar I, which it isn't, and this leads me to be uncertain that the appearance of their version of X8812 with the side air inlets is actually correct. Is there a photo reference of X8812 somewhere to settle this, or can anyone confirm for certain that the serial number X8812 did in fact have the side air inlets?
  2. At Moson Model Show 2017, Special Hobby will propose its stock of 1/72nd Fairey Fulmar kits: SH72143 Fulmar Mk.I (link) & SH72196 prototype (link) - see box art herebelow. New variants Fulmar Mk.II and NF.Mk.II will be release in June 2017. Source: http://www.modelforum.cz/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=95825&start=2805 V.P.

  4. Hello I am searching infos about the Fulmar mk. I (N4004) of 800X Squadron, shot down by Italian anti-aircraft fire, off Siracusa (Sicily) on the night of October, 8, 1941. The wreck lies on a sandy bottom at about 15 meters depth. I would like to build this aircraft in 1/72 and I need info mainly regarding camouflage pattern and individual code. Thank you for your help Domenico
  5. Hello, I wonder if anyone could give me information on what seems to be the second Fairey Battle or P4/34 prototype K7555. Wiki isn't too helpful. I have a postcard of K7555 left to me by my grandfather. It states Fairey "Battle" Bomber..."Britain Prepared". I would love to model this aircraft, just as it is in the postcard with the canopy open and the pilot looking towards the photographer in mid flight. From the black and white postcard, I may be crazy but it seems the aircraft may be painted overall yellow. Yes, I seem to be able to see yellow in black and white . I may be very wrong.. I have an MPM Battle, but I feel this prototype on the postcard may be closer to the old Airfix/Bilek/SK model than the MPM? Wikipedia does give some information on shape characteristics, but no plans Any information would be really appreciated Best regards and happy modelling Tony
  6. Good Morning all from a particularly soggy Nova Scotia, I have been erring on doing this as a WIP for ages. I initially intended to do this as a quick build along with my Skua and therefore didn't bother with a WIP and didn't take any phots of the initial build. But then whilst I was whittling the wings a touch they just shattered in my hand, fortunately they seemed to shatter along certain convenient panel lines so what could I do with this lay out I wonder? : Jiggle the parts around a bit and hey presto! A WIP is reborn! I am going to skirt around the airframe build and just show what has been done so far, the main crux if the WIP will be the wing fold. First up pics of the cockpit. I have used the Eduard self adhesive etch as an extra. Kit detail is ok in this scale but the etch does add more to it although after a couple of years in the stash they aren't quite self adhesive anymore - apart from when they interact with human tissue of course!: And now the Observers station (see I have been paying attention to other posts!). I also added some wiring looms between some of the instruments. Not highly visible but I know they are there! Not too sure about the oxygen bottles in the back. The moulding was very clunky and the parts weren't cast very square (or round) so after whittling they aren't too great. I may pop them out later and redoo. It depends on what they look like under the canopy. The Obs seat is yet to be fitted. I also opened up the cannons on the wing and inserted some brass tube, not quite the right calibre but it will do! And in situ: And also the wheel wells Next up I shall start detailing the wing fold build up More coming very soon! Cheers now Bob
  7. Fairey Fulmar Wingfold

    Good day everyone! I am currently doing the MPM 1:48 Fulmar and for some reason I have decided to chop the wings up and fold them I have quite a few good reference shots but was wondering if anyone had any others. The area I am most interested in is the main wing fold hinges and also the locking mechanism. Would anyone have any close ups of this area or if anyone is going to the FAA museum can they get some shots of this area? I have the 4+ and Warpaint series as well as walkarounds here and on Prime Portal, but am just lacking clear detail of that area. Any help would be much appreciated. Hopefully the pics below will give you an idea of what I need. Pic credit to the Britmodeller walkaround Many thanks Bob
  8. Over the holidays, I was tidying my stash, and discovered a Merlin 1/72 Fulmar purchased in 1991, for £6.95. A product of the early garage-industry limited run injection process, it is molded in a waxy white plastic, with semi-opaque parts that represent the canopies. All surrounded by so much flash that carving the parts to shape is the first thing required, after sawing the parts from the huge sprues. There are decals, but the less said, the better. A good three-view is provided, and it is absolutely necessary if one is to believe this could represent a Fulmar. Easy to understand why it was never started, once the Pegasus version, and then the Vista/Airfix/Smer/Revell appeared. Obviously, this should be one for the bin, but I am possessed occasionally by excited delerium, and in this state of mind I decided to see if anything resembling a model aircraft could be produced. The two fuselage halves do not exactly line up, and the solid wings have a slight bend. The canopies would be useless, except that they are so thick, that inside their form can be discerned something of the original shape. The wings, after hot water treatment and much sanding, were straightened. The fuselage halves were roughly aligned, mating surfaces sanded flat, then glued together. The canopies were sanded extensively to fit their apertures, and lightly glued in place. They were then sanded to match the airframe contours, removed from the model and polished to give a semblance of clarity. Turning to the wings, having decided to try to represent a folded wing Fulmar, each wing was cut into three pieces. The stub wings were pinned with brass rod, and glued in place, as were the horizontal tail and vertical pieces. And that is where we are today. Next up, some scratch built cockpit invention/detail and paint, then re-attachment of the canopies. More to come.........
