  1. @dambuster I've found something better. John
  2. The only thing I have is this, I know the out riggers are in the 'wrong' place but the maim wheels will be the same. It's funny there is nothing in my Harrier AP's or the AV.8A T.O. that have the same information, strange! John
  3. @gingerbob Some control column drawings if they help? Also if you fancy doing one with the engine exposed, it looks like a fun job if you're up for a bit of plumbing! John
  4. She looks very nice Ian, well done! He'll be well chuffed I bet. John
  5. Glad to help Ian, she looks grand! I'm sure your friend will be made up with her. If you hadn't been putting her on a base you'd have been justified in fitting the tail prop, not at all unusual for the Canberra. Let us know when she goes to RFI. John
  6. Hi Mike I did indeed, rather splendid don't you think? I've been helping John Fisher a bit with things, and the Australian TT.18. It's a shame we can't have the same in her country of birth! I live in hope, but seeing as the only prospect is WK163 I'm not hopeful. What I'd like to see is someone get a B.57B/E back in the sky. I hope you have a good and happy Christmas and all the best for 2022. John
  7. I don't know if the pod was the same on the Vampire and the Venom, but if so this may help? If not, well it's a nice drawing regardless. John
  8. Bloody Navigator, leaving his scarf in the nose! The fix sounds like a good plan. All in all looking good Ian, are you going to paint the Nav lights on the wing tips? John
  9. Looking good Ian, I'm sure he'll be knocked out by it! she'll look better when she's all dressed up, they always do! John
  10. The photo is of NZ898 in final assembly at Samlesbury, the page is from the Halifax III AP, book one. John
  11. Can you a direct comparison with the FROG wing and the new version please? If they are the same or very close that will be good news. John
  12. Are you trying on a phone? If so you need to try a PC or Apple laptop, for some reason the server doesn't get on with mobile devices. There is a work round but it's beyond my skill set. If all else fails email me at canberra.sig@googlemail.com John
  13. If they did a B.2 and a B.6 kit they could use everything in the two kits to do a PR.3 and PR.7 with the addition of new fuselages. Job done! John
  14. The way I do it Jason involves 3 kits. I always base my PR.3 and PR.7's on the old Airfix B.57 kit. When they changed the mold they some how managed to get the fuselage length wrong, making it too long, but right for a PR. Canberra! The next part is the hardest, ideally you need the last version of the Aeroclub replacement nose, if not that any off the other B.2 style nose replacements. The last thing in the mix are a set of wings from the FROG B.(I)8 or any of it's reincarnations, or the newer Airfix B.(I)8 then you have the makings of a good PR.7. Aeroclub did a vac form fuselage if you can find one, you could use that with an Airfix 8. John
  15. You would definitely need two fuselages for the RB.57A and B.57B/C a modification to rear end of the B would cover the E. You could do the wings with a drop in panel on the upper and underside, so yes it can be done. There are some other details but nothing big. I still think the British Canberra would need two kits, at least. John
  16. No, it would need new wings too. The fuselage is diferant between the A and the B too, not just the nose. John
  17. Nice, I did send them the info so it looks like they used what I sent, though I didn't get a response at the time. John
  18. The Martin Canberra would definitely be two kits minimum, I still think at least 2 for the British Canberra too. John
  19. So did they do new wings for the T.17? Have you got one of the old kits to compare it with? John
  20. I can't remember if I have it on my site IPMS UK Canberra SIG. If not let me know and I'll dig it out. But given the inaccuracy of the wing in the kit you will probably need to start from scratch. John
  21. The only problem with that Piotr is the difference between Mk.'s you can't do an accurate generic Canberra, you could just about do a B.2 family and a separate kit for the B.6 family but there are difference between all of them in the skin details. John
