    Blackburn Beverley interior colours

    HI Dave pb I know this is on no help to you but I was looking for my photographs of the example in South Yorkshire that included internal pics but I cannot fine them which has really vexed me. If memory serves I do believe it was predominately green or grey but I could not remember a demarcation of both colours. I shall keep looking in the vain hope I have not lost them. Gary

    BN Defender/AEW Defender

    Evening all. I am starting another build soon and I am in need of a little info to help me on my way. I have tried to find a pic of the cockpit of a BN AEW Defender but to no avail. Also, I have seen this colour scheme before but for the life of me cannot remember where, http://www.island-images.co.uk/Aircraft/2003/BJ291349.jpg. It looks like a black and dark green. Any help on the above would be appreciated. Thanks Gary

    A boy called Sue, or Lesley or Marion or even Yvonne?

    I know three, yes three men called Tracey, all in the same town.

    Some superb fingertip work General, this sort of scale frightens the hell out of me, so many unknowns. A pleasure to behold. Pray tell, do you write for Airfix only or would I have to buy a library of mags to read your articles ?

    Manston Harrier

    I love going for days out looking at wrecks and relics, your build has captured the Harrier as you wanted, your skills are on the up sir. Super build.

    1/32 Matchbox Sea Venom

    I had this kit as a kid and I cannot even remember if I built it, however, your build is lovely and crisp and shows what can be done with old kits.

    Scampton to close.

    Well spotted Pete, is this the death Nell for shows at active RAF stations (except RIAT) ? It would be wonderful if it could retain an aviation orientated future but as we have seen many times, the housing corner usually come out winners in this fight. I live in hope.

    Alley Cat also make a resin kit, it has a few shape inaccuracies but can be built into a nice model. My attempt is in the Experimental and prototype group build if you so wish to have a peek. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/forum/589-prototypes-experimentals-world-firsts-record-breakers-gb/ I was not lucky enough to see it but I watched the One Show and it made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, superb it was.

    Decal sets suggestion open topic.

    How about Test and Development aircraft sheets, RAE, Qinetic, and some of the older airframes that wore some odd paint schemes, like the Canberra's that were used in various roles at test establishments. Following on from that, company schemes or logos on military aircraft/helicopters.

    Nice work Steve, I am always loath to throw good work to one side but I can see why you did it, the vac-form cockpit section is a superb idea...that penny must have made a loud noise when it dropped into place Jumping ahead a little, is there any fuselage framework visible inside the cockpit and if so is it wood or tubular, I am looking forward to see how you tackle it.

    Blue Meteor

    Now that is one Meteor I have not seen, love the scheme and the short story of it's demise, another to add to my 'to-do' list.
