  2. Hi everyone, I started to assemble this Airfix kit: by Rodolfo Masti, on Flickr to make this aircraft: Source: 3 Squadron - Australian Flying Corps / Royal Australian Air Force A brief history: In early April 1945 'Dusty' Lane claimed one of No 3 Sqn RAAF's few victories on the Mustang III/IV when he shot down an Fi 156 over Yugoslavia. He flew KH676 regularly throughout the latter part of the month, including twice on the 25th in attacks on canal lock gates. The following day Lane attacked a ferry crossing in it, despite being opposed by heavy flak. The Mustang 111/IVs of No 3 Sqn RAAF proclaimed their Australian ownership by having their fins painted blue,onto which the unit applied the stars of the Southern Cross.

  13. Hi everyone, I'm starting to assemble this Ebbro Kit: by Rodolfo Masti, on Flickr to make this car: Lotus 49 Jim Clark Became the pole sitter of 1967 Italian Grand Prix Source:Carthrottle.com "The 1967 Grand Prix of Italy at Monza is considered by many to be one of the best Formula One races in history. It was also Scotsman Jim Clark’s best drive of his career. The irony is that Clark didn’t even win the race, merely coming back from a post-pit stop deficit of nearly a lap to overtake the entire field before yielding to a fuel shortage. In the 1967 Italian Grand Prix at Monza after starting from pole, Clark was leading in his Lotus 49 (chassis R2), when a tyre punctured. He lost an entire lap while having the wheel changed in the pits. Rejoining sixteenth, Clark ripped back through the field, progressively lowering the lap record and eventually equalling his pole time of 1m 28.5s, to regain the lost lap and the lead. He was narrowly ahead of Brabham and Surtees starting the last lap, but his car had not been filled with enough fuel for such a performance: it faltered, and finally coasted across the finish line in third place."

  17. Hi all, I'm starting to assemble this HobbyBoss kit: by Rodolfo Masti, on Flickr The first-of-class of the Type 039 submarine No320 was launched 1994 at Wuchang Shipyard, and started sea trials in August 1995. However, the submarine was not fully operational until 1999 due to serious design flaws, including unsatisfactory underwater performance and noise level.

  21. Hi everyone, I'm starting to assemble this Hasegawa kit: by Rodolfo Masti, on Flickr to make this aircraft: VO-5 USS New York (BB-34) Source: Naval History and Heritage Command The Curtiss SOC Seagull was a biplane scout-observation aircraft that operated from US battleships and cruisers throughout the Second World War and was designed as a replacement for the Vought 02U. Each battleship carried three SOC's for the primary purpose of spotting long range of its 14-inch guns. All cruiser carried four planes units and these were primarily for scouting. All models of the SOC were convertible from floatplanes to landsplanes and operated on wheels from naval air stations ashore when their parent ship was in port. The Seagull was used to support several shore bombardments, including Operation Torch, the invasion of Sicily and the Salerno landings. During these operations it proved to be very vulnerable to enemy fighter aircraft. The Seagull was in use on US cruisers during the battle of the Coral Sea (4-8 May 1942), at the battle of Midway of June 1942, and on the fleet that supported the invasion of Gaudalcanal and Tulagi in August 1942. At Midway twenty-eight Seagulls equipped Cruiser Scouting Squadrons 4, 5 and 6 (VCS-4, VCS-5 and VCS-6). During the Guadalcanal campaign Seagulls were used to try and find the Japanese ships ferrying reinforcements to the island at night (the Tokyo Express), with at least one being shot down.
