    Are there any Lancaster VI decals in 1/72?

    Hi I second eye witness accounts, what bowyer & other spotters saw, they may not have had the exact name for the paint colour, (as we now know), but recorded what they saw sometimes old letters to the editor in airfix magazine held 'gems' as well cheers jerry

    Question about RAF Bostons - 3 crew or 4?

    Hi So a change over date, presumably when they had enough trained aircrew end of 1943 or start of 1944 ? Always something to learn in this hobby cheers jerry

    Question about RAF Bostons - 3 crew or 4?

    Hi quite possible some squadrons flew with four crew but to confirm the crew size on a particular squadron, in this thread the tag is 88sqn it is best to view the squadron summary of events for accuracy i.e. http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D8455193 which shows the squadron was flying missions with a three man crew in november 1942 cheers jerry

    Question about RAF Bostons - 3 crew or 4?

    Hi Best bet is to check 88Sqn records at the NA, for the aircraft or date/s you want this should give a crew list for the mission preview is low def but free i.e. preview shows http://discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D8455193 shows three crew in november 1942 cheers jerry

    Turbinlite Havoc: when and where please?

    Hi My personal theory is that those walking by are from 307Sqn and that the turbinlite belongs to the GRU both of which were based at exeter But as always will gladly be corrected if others know more cheers jerry
