  1. the Airfix Heron has a small wheeled boarding steps,and the kit has Jersey Airline livery. For period vehicles Oxford die cast are excellent.
  2. Try this site http://www.polishsquadronsremembered.com/ . There was an excellent booklet on the Miles Magister published some years ago by Graham ...... had lots of the various camouflage schemes.
  3. Such a nice change lovely markings . There are other worthy aircraft than Spitfires !!
  4. Hello Fritag Hope you are ok ? just let us know as I and many others enjoy your modelwork.
  5. Heads Up. The Works are selling the Westland Wessex Haynes Manual for £4 !
  6. The dark patches on the tailplane are oil and exhaust stains as the points on the tailplane are behind the engines. Most of the wartime Mossies were worked hard and did not look like factory fresh examples .
  7. I have Robert Kirbys excellent book on the Avro Manchester. Had a thorough look through and on page 156 a picture taken from the rear of the aircraft L7289. It has the dorsal fin and smaller outer fins . The codes and serial are definitely grey as they stand out as opposed to red. The undersides and fuselage look to be in a very dark sooty black finish ala night fighter Beaufighters.
  8. The May issue of "Aeroplane" magazine has an excellent article on Neil Armstrong's visit to RAE Bedford where he flew the HP.115 and Shuttleworth where he flew the Avro 504 K . there is a nice picture of the 504 with Neil in the cockpit.
  9. Secured a UK copy postage free for £4 thanks again.
  10. Thanks they want £8.50 postage !
  11. Thanks noelh it all helps.
  12. Would be grateful for any help in obtaining plans of this 4 seat DH Tiger Moth conversion in 1957 any scale please ? Thinking of converting the Airfix Tiger Moth kits 1/72 and 1/48 scale. The Jackaroo had a widened fuselage and undercarriage. Some were built for crop -sprayers but one was used by Sheila Scott G-APAM the famous lady aviator.
