  1. The photo in the 2nd link has nothing to do with the crash of KK194 apart from illustrating a post war Dakota in a much later Transport Command scheme, 1960s probably.
  2. Lovely kits but not an RAF aircraft of course. It was operated by the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm.
  3. Thanks, I try to post weekly but normal life gets in the way sometimes. Off to Wales for a family break so won’t be in tomorrow or next Friday but I will be posting as I’ve been sent some photos to post.
  4. The Cobb is just out of shot on the left. The double gable end building is The Cobb Arms.
  5. Your contract was with the vendor so just take it back and request a refund or replacement as the goods are not fit for purpose.
  6. South Korea has bought some.
  7. Nice model but the tail rotor of an AH1 turns in the opposite direction (anti-clockwise when viewed from the left) to an AH7 (clockwise) and has different blades. I believe you’ve retained the AH7 tail rotor and blades.
  8. The standard size for both was 4".
  9. You’re correct, light will always play tricks. They were painted polyurethane matt NATO green to BS381C-285 from 1980 until 2016, the same as the Wessex HU5. DAP101C-0404-6A Chap 07-80-00 pg 703-3 refers.
  10. Sea King HC4s we painted in the same shade of green throughout their lives.
  11. Bought my copy from The Book Depository via Amazon, £33.33. Should arrive tomorrow hopefully. No.27 in the series.
  12. Referred to unofficially as an HAR5, the official designation was HU5.
  13. Just noticed that a new volume in the Classic Publications Luftwaffe series will be published next year, Dornier Do 215 - Luftwaffe and other Operators 1938-1945, by Mikael Olrog to be published on 15 June 2017. ISBN 1906537526, currently listed on Amazon at £63.38 for pre-order. No idea what number in the series this will be but there is a gap in the numbering for the volumes in the series published so far.
