  8. Dear friends, I have been working with my father on a new project, the Boulton Paul Defiant series. Although there are a lot of information, books and photos available I have gaps of information in some particular aircrafts. These are the aircrafts already done: 1) Boulton Paul P.82 Defiant (K8310) Prototype - August 11, 1937 2) Boulton Paul P.82 Defiant K8620 Second prototype, with turret and Merlin II, flown May 18, 1939 3) Boulton Paul P.82 Defiant (K8310) Fighter Prototype 4) The Defiant first prototype, K8310 with a single 20mm Hispano cannon 5) Boulton Paul Defiant Mk I N3328 DZ/Z - 151 Sqdn as night fighter. 6) Boulton Paul Defiant Mk I N3340 DY/D 255 Sqdn based on RAF Kirton in Lindsey Lincolnshine UK, early 1941 7) Boulton Paul Defiant Mk I V1110 RA/H of 410 Sqdn based at RAF Drem, UK, Autum 1941 8) Boulton Paul Defiant Mk II AA370 England 1941 9) Defiant Mk I L6950 with bomb racks, for trials at Aircraft Experimental Establishment 1939. 10) Defiant Mk I T3997 AQ on Air Sea Rescue duties with N 276 A.S.R. Squadrons 1942. And these are the candidates. We only have 24 kits available. 11 Defiant Mk II N1550 First prototype Mk II 1940 12 Defiant Mk II N1550 First prototype Mk II 1942 13 Defiant TT III DS121 1945 14 Defiant TT I AA581 June 1944 15 Defiant NF Mk II AA583 ZJ/ M Flown by Squadron Leader R.C.

This aircraft features small blue and white SEAC markings. The only references I have for this aircraft are drawings mentioned in: - Scale_Aircraft_Modelling_-_Vol_16_No_04 page 179 - Review of the Classic Airframes 1/48 Boulton Paul Defiant TT.Mk.I / III Target Tug Does any of you could confirm that this scheme is correct?. There should be a a photo of this aircraft somewhere. Many thanks in advance Kind regards Santiago PD: I posted the photos of the models done on the Ready for inspection section.

  10. Hi guys Here are the final photos of the Consolidated PB2Y Coronado JX501. I hope you like it. Many thanks for your help Cheers Santiago
  11. HI Many thanks.. I realized the few photos of this type in RAF markings. Here are two photos showing the progress on the model. Cheers Santiago PD: I am in the middle of the process of defining the final number of Defiant for our next proyect. The series will probably include 21 models which 10 of them are already done. I will ask same question on this matter.
  12. Hi guys, Many many thanks for all your comments and the great color photo!!!. This information was most usefull for us. I will post the photos showing the progress on the models as son as possible. Cheers Santiago
  13. Hi to all, I wonder if any of you could help us with photos and/or scheme color camouflage of the Consolidated PB2Y Coronado in British markings. Any reference or comments will be much appreciate.

  14. Hi guys, I used to post the photos of our models in other section of this site (Aicraft Modelling/Military Aircraft Modelling Discussion/WWII) Fortunately our friend Luis could finished for us some decals which allowed my father finished these two models done some years ago. 1) Armstrong Whitworth A.W. 27 Ensing GADSU "Euterpe" October 1942 in Withchurch used on the Cairo Calculta sector of the route to Australia. This model was done from scratch in balsa wood. (1/72 scale) Some photos with the HP42 already done some time ago With the DH Albatross in the display cabinet And the full view of one out of four display cabinet 2) De Havilland D.H.91 Abatross . GA FDK at Whitchurch Airport 1941 . (1/72 scale) And both DH Albatross DH 91 together. The De Havilland D.H.91 Abatross in BOAC marking was done by my father in scratch (balsa wood). The second one was done using a Vacum form kit. My father is doing five Blackburn Firebrand by this moment. Cheers Santiago
