    The White tailed is of 767 NAS, DLCO training unit 195 at VL, so not sure if that qualifies? Aeronaval, is 54.SEscadrille 1950 that should be ok, The last one is of 802 on Vengeance which i was ironically looking at along with the frenchie. Do Malta based and RCAF machines qualify? Training units dont that correct?

  6. Ill be joining with a couple of late mark Seafires, not sure which ones yet as i need to dive into the stash but they will be a combo of XV, XVII, 45, 46, 47 from AZ, Special hobby and Sword.
  7. I think Tam Model have been putting hit on the back burner probaly due to some potential wind that another main stream manufactuer was going to do one. Ive been waiting for the 1/72 buc from them for ages andit also appeaers that they moved it up a scale to 1/48. The 1/72 seems to have dissapeared.

    Firstly Wow has it been that long since i posted an update. Well progress has been very good so here is an update up to decalling, Tail was assembled with no issues. DSC_0079 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Tail was then cemented to the main fuselage. fit wasnt 100% but got there in the end. DSC_0080 by stuart wellard, on Flickr The next step i chose was to fit the PE for the exhaust areas. These re a massive improvement over decals. DSC_0081 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Wings mated to the fuselage, dont recall any issues. DSC_0082 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Some prep and painting of the cowls and engines. DSC_0083 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Sitting already for primer. DSC_0085 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Glazing fitted with PVA DSC_0109 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Then masking all those windows aided via the eduard masking set. Much Needed! DSC_0110 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Internal primers airbrushed. DSC_0111 by stuart wellard, on Flickr After priming i gave her a coat of dark OD. This was then faded with a lightened faded bottle from Vallejo MA DSC_0112 by stuart wellard, on Flickr DSC_0113 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Close up of the faded contrast DSC_0114 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Now the bombs and the weight!! Note there is no mention in the instructions and there is no where to put some during fuselage construction and she will need a lot. I decided to use the bomb bay and not affix all the bombs instead using the gap to fill with lead and then use the bombs to cover it up. DSC_0115 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Lead weight location DSC_0118 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Rear compartment DSC_0119 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Neutral grey applied to the cowls. these were left off as i thought lead in the rear sections would be enough, it wasnt. tyres were also painted. DSC_0116 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Added some lumps and bumps DSC_0120 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Props painted with yellow tips and decals to be painted/applied. DSC_0121 by stuart wellard, on Flickr Ready for decals sitting on her wheels. DSC_0117 by stuart wellard, on Flickr
