    Seafire Mystery

    I came across this (rather bad) image of Seafires on a carrier deck in the Mediterranean Can anybody identify the light coloured objects on the noses of the two planes. Is it simply light reflecting off the exhaust stubs or could it be pale coloured paint?
  13. Bruce, here is a Parhe newsreel film on Ansons from Youngsfield, Cape Town during the war. https://www.britishpathe.com/video/south-african-coastal-patrol-1/query/Cape+TOWN
  14. Troy, that image originates from the now defunct WW2color.com site of the late Jeffrey Ethell.
  15. Hi there Chris. Better late than never.......... Troy alerted me to your post (regarding the obscured serials)......... so I went back to that Danish site and found this enclosed photo of SF-V with serial SW 426...........hope it helps.
  16. Here is a 1944 colour screengrab.
  17. Great buid and a VERY realistic finish.. Top class photography as well.
  18. Thanks chaps.....I found an old AeroMaster decal sheet on ebay that contains the correct '4 M'.......... so.......... problem solved
  19. Help please............... Does anybody know what font was used on this Avenger with reference to the "M"
  20. Thanks for these comments chaps.....really appreciated. WHOFAN, about the B/W photo -- just check my opening comments..... Etienne.
  21. Here is my Special Hobby Oxford representing the ambulance version in 1940. The build involved constructing a new tilt-up door, moving some windows and detailing the visible inside. This took some time and for the first time I took a snap of my labours (to prove that it is there) as most of it cannot be seen after closure of the fuselage halves. Otherwise it was a straight forward build that was finished with Tamiya paints and decals from the spares box and a few custom made ones from my friend at MAV decals. Finally here's a note on the B/W image; Girl Guides from all parts of the British Empire contributed donations towards the purchase of two air ambulances and a motor lifeboat in 1940. This photo shows one of the air ambulances and with Guides and Brownies on the day of its presentation. As usual comments (especially on bo-boos) are welcome. Cheers, Etienne. .
  22. Have a look here Mark Inside...............purple...........who's going to know Cheers........
  23. Here is my 1/48 Airfix Hurricane Mk I representing a 30 or 213 Sqn. machine that operated in a night fighter role for the air defence of Alexandria, Egypt in 1941. This was my first build of the ‘new generation’ Airfix kits and must confess , I was most impressed. Apart from adding a curvature on the upper wings it was a out of the box effort and very enjoyable at that. Cheers....
  24. Captured by the SAAF .
