  1. For anyone interested I am working on decals for this (assuming it won't come with any?), will be able to properly size and print after I get the kit as this has just been guesstimated. https://ibb.co/kSkypo Oldmodels Decals in NZ already does a set too, OMD0100 Ansett NZ B737-100-200 1/72 - http://www.oldmodelsdecals.com/B737-A320-BAe146.html

    Last bombs on Berlin

    Just reading in September's Flypast about Mosquito B.XVI PF407/A of 105 Squadron that dropped the last bombs on Berlin at 2.26am (GMT) on 21/4/45, rather than the long-credited B.XVI MM929 of 109 Squadron which dropped at 2.14am. Adding the historical significance (105 Sqn also undertook the first Mossie bombing sortie against Pont-à-Vendin on 29/8/42) to the fact that she had a Kiwi pilot and an Aussie nav means my Airfix 1/48 kit will now get a change of identity, but not that much out there on 105 Sqn in the last days of the War. HKM show this B.IX in May 45 with just the aircraft code in Dull Red with black serials, would the B.XVI's have been the same or full GB-A codes, and if so in what colour? TIA, Jamie
  3. I THINK the boxart of the Harrier GR.3 is supposed to depict HMS Hermes in the background, trouble is they've used the recent (since decommissioned) INS Viraat version of her! Boxart - Hermes 1985 - Viraat 2016 -

    Wow, thanks SO much Simon, those details are EXACTLY what I was after, to use an Aussie Term - "Yer blood is worth bottlin'!"

    Thanks rossm, suspected it wouldn't be THAT easy, less than 5 credited kills = obscurity, no matter the obstacles overcome in the process!

    Hi all, Jamie newly signed up from Australia. Anyone know any details of Flight Lieutenant Colin Hodgkinson Spits, ie codes & serials? Looks like Vb's with 131 & 611 and IX's with 501? http://www.rquirk.com/Behague/hodgkinson.html TIA, Jamie
