  1. Thanks,Graham! My perusal of photos on the web doesn’t show any filter-like structure on the cowling bottom of Griffon Spitfires that resemble the Merlin filters. I’m still leaning towards the “no filter” option. The Spiteful seems to be the first, depending on whether or not you count the post war Fireflies. Then, there’s the Seafire 47. regards, TW
  2. Hello Spitfire experts, I’m curious to know whether or not the Mark 14/18/19 Spitfires had tropical filters. If not, were filters fitted only to Seafires/Spitefuls? regards, TW
  3. Hello All, I have an old Curtiss navy hawk kit from Monogram, that is without the instructions. If there is someone out there on Britmodeller with a copy to scan, I would be forever grateful! regards, TW
  4. Hi All, I am looking for photographs of KN645 in the immediate post war period, especially any showing the nose and vertical tail. This aircraft was also used by the Military Governors of the British sector, W. Sholto Douglas, and Sir Brian Robertson. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. TW
  5. Thanks to all for the help! Turns out that the team also flew XN serialled JP3’s modified to make smoke, the tank was mounted on the right ejection seat rails. this is from an old email from my uncle , Flt. Lt. T.H. Whittingham. TW
  6. Hello All, I am looking for photos of the Central Flying School Aerobatic Team in 1961, either at the Paris Air Show, or Farnborough. My late uncle flew in the slot position that year, and I’d like to build the new Airfix kit as a tribute.They were on JP3 trainers, modified to make smoke. Does anyone have photos to share? All assistance will be greatly appreciated. TW
  7. Hello All, does anyone have, or have access to photos of the 88 squadron Bostons when at Vitry en Artois, that they would be willing to share? I’m looking for aircraft and crew photos. any help would be greatly appreciated. TW
  8. Well done! Here’s another type that needs more exposure on the modelling front. Cornells were also used by the RNoAF in Toronto and Muskoka, Ontario.
