    1/72 Verlinden resin base question

    Hi Brian, I'm in New Westminster, and bought the Verlinden set from Burnaby Hobbies, about 4-5 years ago. I haven't seen it around for awhile, so I don't know whether it's still available. Regards, Tom By the way, I just noticed that we joined Britmodeller on the same day.

    RAF WW2 Bomb racks

    I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but Belcher Bits does a Type H trolley in resin for Tallboy/Grand Slam (BL7), small bomb containers (BL-05), Flightpath has a Type D trolley in PE and metal w/4000lb resin cookie, although I think it may be 8000lb. Matador also does a set with various trolleys I believe. Hope This Helps, Tom

    1/72 Verlinden resin base question

    Most of the equipment is cast as part of the base (fuel tanks, drums, tool kits, buckets etc.), with the exception of 4 drums and several boxes which are separate parts. The surface is Marsden matting, and the whole thing is quite nicely cast. Hope This Helps, Tom

    What colour are Dauntless dive brakes?

    My references indicate Insignia Red on the flap interior, and I've not seen anything to indicate that there was any difference between Atlantic or Pacific Hope This Helps, Tom

    Sunderland in 72nd

    You may want to check out a softcover book called "Advanced Techniques Volume Four-Short Sunderland Mk.IIIA" by Andrea Vignocchi, published by Auriga Publishing International in 2008,no ISBN. Almost entirely dedicated to the building of Airfix's Sunderland. Lots of good techniques and colour photos. It does not have any photos of a real Sunderland, so it's not a reference work per se, but it's a beautiful book I recommend heartily. Hope This Helps, Tom
