  1. Time got in my way, and a dash to complete before the end was thankfully achieved. Thanks for everyone who built in this GB, many inspiring posts (and thanks for the increased stash...) and great to see old kits given a breathe of life! Thanks all Muddyf
  2. Count me interested. Something Malta based, or a Vichy aircraft. Maybe even a carrier...
  3. TBH, life got in the way, and so this was a rush to complete on time. As such, most of the WIP was not photographed. Finished model:
  4. My submission: Frog Beaufighter mk21 OOB build.
  5. I have access to a Bolingbroke restoration, the original cockpit framing that I have seen is all in the Canadian version of grey-green.
  6. Put me down as interested. I have no helis in the stash, but it would not take much persuasion (I.e. none) to add one of the Bristol’s to the stash (Sycamore or Belvedere).
  7. Just found this build! I loved this series, late night Saturday (well Sunday morning really) watch after a night out! A great first episode with an iconic cameo from R Lee Ermey basically playing a future version of his character from Full Metal Jacket (only less foul mouthed if I remember!). A potentially great series axed far to soon, but I digress. A strangely attractive craft and I will follow this build with interest!

    Bristol Beaufort 1/48 or 1/72. One day......
  9. Looks to lump groups of bombs into rough geographical locations rather than specific ‘hits’. Missing some large raids (Yate, NE of Bristol has 4 raids listed, but misses out the raid on the Parnall factory that killed 54) The map is missing information (roads that have existed pre-WW2 etc, but includes new industrial estates) That said, it’s still very interesting and potentially useful.
  10. Thanks for the replies so far. I thought it might be a long shot! As usual with looking for reference materials from the period, there are millions of photos, just none of the thing you want
  11. My Grandfather worked for Bristol, and during the mid 1950’s onwards spent a lot of time training aircrews on the Britannia. He also spent a few years travelling to central and southern America. I understand from what he told me was that a lot of pilots would travel to Filton for training on the Britannia, and later Concorde. Unfortunately he passed away several years ago and there was so much I never asked him about his career.
  12. I have more Blenheim IV’s built than any other type, BUT, I have to say for me it’s the Mk I. The shape for a start. The fact that, if only for a very short time, could fly faster than virtually every fighter on the planet at the time.
  13. I have read in multiple places (books and this very site) that some Blenheim IV's wearing TSS but painted with night or black undersides. Now, does any photographic evidence exist of this? I have MANY photos and without getting into the whole debate of colour recognition in B&W photos, none i have show categorically the TSS and Black schemes. Does anyone know where (if they exist) any photos can be found? Thanks in advance!
  14. 92 squadron flew Blenheim until around March/April 1940 before converting to Spitfires, so if you want Battle of Britain operated Blenheim's you will have to look at other squadrons. Blenheim operating squadrons were: Fighter Command 23, 25, 29, 219, FIU, 600 & 604 Coastal Command 235, 236 & 248
  15. Count me in! Love a pair of Bristol's! The list of kits i have that would fit into this GB is extensive! Beaufighter (Multiple) Blenheim (Multiple) Buckingham Brigand Buckmaster Various paper and proposed aircraft And that's just the ones with propellers....
