  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. I doubt it very much James, I did send them all the correct info, but I suspect it's still the same kit, otherwise they would have had to to start from scratch, so I think it's left with the same issues as before, but they did get the B.2 wheel hub sorted in the end! So no all bad. John
  4. I doubt any changes have been made to the kit other than markings. Still waiting for a good 1/72 B.2! John
  5. Andre, the "do not use" ones should look like the ones in Ian's post in answer to my question, the T.17 was a B.2 derivative, so it would have the same paten hub as the B.2. John
  6. It should be ok Ian, Fairies no nothing about wheels Another question, do you get a choice of starter carriage fairings? If you do it's the short ones you need. John
  7. Hi Ian, I thought the HP kit didn't have the mudguards, so that's good in this case, The wheels are the later 'big' wheel which is quite diferant to the B.2 pattern wheel, but other than the very hard to find Aeroclub resin wheel there isn't really an alternative, unless the Russian outfit that do resin wheels do them, I can't remember the name of the company, sorry. The fuel vapor mast would be on the lower right hand side below the tail plain, but that was a later mod not on the one you're building so that's easy, just don't fit it! just drill a small hole on the side of the fuselage, if you can plough through all the pages my B.2 build will show you where it goes. I've attached your photo with some pointers, the two circled areas need filling on both sides of the nacelle as they are for the Avon 109 engine, I hope that makes sense?
  8. Shaping up nicely Ian, don't forget not to add the fuel vent mast and nose wheel mudguards (if included?) What are the main wheel hubs like? John
  9. @Ray_W Ray, this is the ground equipment for controlling the Canberra U.10, this was designed and built by Shorts. John
  10. I know the pitfalls of interpreting colour from B&W photos, but I had similar thoughts David. There is another photo of a line of Spits that he took but I can't find it, but I don't think it would add much more anyway. John
  11. This is probably doesn't add much but this is a photo my dad took in between flying. John
  12. Can't help with the Meteor but if you want some info on the Canberra U.10 ground and air controls let me know. John
  13. I don't think I'm going to chip in much Ian, t looks like you're on top on the curve on this build. John
  14. Looking good Ian, it's not an easy build by any means but it's still the best B.2/6 kit around. If you need/want any reference have a poke around my web site, Canberra SIG or give me a shout, I'm always happy to help if I can. John
  15. Of the three Canberra's involved two appear to have been camera shy, I only have a photo of WH660. This is a drawing of the weapon I hope it's of use/interest? John
  16. Not unsurprisingly there were also 3 Canberra's involved too, WD935, WD942 & WH660 these were involved in the UK testing and Australia. John
  17. There is a ton of phantom info on here. Try Google. John
  18. This is the early Mk.10 with the shaped head box John
  19. This is what it says in the pilots notes, to me it sounds like the set up on the Canberra, 7. Tailplane trim and indicator (a) A four-way switch, at the top of the control column, when operated fore-and-aft i.e., in line with the thumb, provides tailplane trim. Operating the switch completes the circuit to an electric actuator which resets the neutral datums of the tailplane feel simulators , thus trimming the tailplane. (b) The position of the tail plain is shown on a TAILPLANE indicator on the instrument panel. Two positions of the aircraft Controls and Instruments indicator, one marked FU and the other FD how the trimmed position for take-off with the flap up and fl aps down, respectively. (c) A DUPLICATE TRIM- NOSE UP/ NOSE DOWN switch under a flap on the port console, is provided as an alternative control for tailplane trimming if the four-way switch fails. Lifting the flap disconnect the electrical supply to the fore-and-aft circuit of the four-way switch and completes the circuits to the duplicate witch. (d) Auto-trimming The tailplane is automatically trimmed when the flaps are -operated by the normal system . John
  20. I've just read through this hoping it may shed some light but unfortunately not, other than stating the P.11 (T.4) is aerodynamically no worse than the P,1A and in some respects better. John
  21. No Sqn code just the aircraft serials. this is an example of the style and size variation, the only on I can make out is AVRO built B.2 WK115. As for availability, the Model Alliance Canberra serial sheet if you can find them, if all else fails I probable have the ones you need. John
  22. Hi Ian More photos, The Hind was only applied for Exercise Hannibal May 1955, This photo was taken during the exercise. A note for modelling, the airframes are in an early mod state so no mudguards on the nose wheel, no fuel vaper vent mast, and note the position of the pitot sighted to the left of the secondary window, I have a better photo of the Hind if you want it? John
  23. Ian, I'll see if I can find a photo, but in the meantime, it would most likely be High Speed Silver with a yellow fin flash and white tip tanks. John
