  11. Hi No the interest is after the loss, it was sent to 5 OTU at boundary bay BC for use as an instruction airframe 10.6.44 SOC 10.11.45 So I was wondering if it was still in its delivery scheme, as it never left Canada cheers jerry
  12. Hi research for a future project anyone know if liberator III aircraft in 1942 were delivered in US colours and painted in UK to coastal scheme or left the US already in coastal scheme ex 41-1110 FK216 cheers jerry
  13. Hi Another random thought it appears to be in the same position where the AI aerial was fitted on the Havoc, looking at the 1977 plans done by Bentley Did any boston aircraft get the AI fit ? cheers jerry
  14. Hi My random thoughts are most of the aircraft appear to show 'touch up' paint of a slightly different shade of paint in different places maybe this could be covering up markings painted by the previous squadron who had the aircraft before 418 ? or not ? and just prop spray paint wear ? cheers jerry
  15. Hi thanks for posting nice photo of 'victoria' with modified fuselage roundel cheers jerry
  16. Hi don't forget some mosquito bulged bombay aircraft had four blade props i.e. 692 squadron at least an old thread i started link to photo http://aircrewremembered.com/morgan-john-perenera.html of interest ? the last aircraft in the line up might have black undersurfaces ? cheers jerry

  18. Hi Nice photo thanks for posting i have fancied doing a speculative 137 Sqn whirlwind intruder in these colours cheers jerry
  19. Hi I suppose there is always the chance that being a canadian squadron, that the different scheme was used think DK decals did the same scheme on their night intruders sheet https://www.scalemates.com/kits/dk-decals-72068-night-intruders-part-2--1184532 aviaeology link here https://www.aviaeology.com/store/p154/AviaDossier-1_Canadian-Aircraft-of-WWII.html#/ it states the aicraft came from 605 Sqn to 418, 605 had been doing camo trials cheers jerry
  20. Hi found this about the tanks In 1942 Martin designed a huge auxiliary ++ fuel tank which fit underneath the plane, allowing it to fly the South Atlantic from Brazil to West Africa via Ascencion Island. The tank was so large that it hung down within 18 inches of the runway; ferry pilots took care to land gently. https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bs-xpm-1993-10-12-1993285099-story,amp.html cheers jerry
  21. Hi i have always been curious as to what paint colours that they may have at a diy store that would match ? i know they can mix/match colours if buying bigger cans of paint but wonder if they do small sample size tins ? or have small sample tins for sale cheers jerry
  22. Hi interesting, i didn't notice those i think i have seen similar on boston/havoc/A-20 but not on a baltimore cheers jerry
