  16. Hi I was planning a scratchbuild of the cannons link to a nice photo reference page https://www.destinationsjourney.com/historical-military-photographs/westland-whirlwind/ thread drift On the performance issue the theory at the time in 1940/1 ...... the R-R reports show that poor installation at westlands was an issue they modified one at R-R to give more power, but the solution arrived to late for the whirlwind in 1941 and the aircraft was restored to standard fit in the photos it shows minor external changes cheers jerry
