  1. @John Look in your 2014 thread https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234955191-wellington-t2508-a-school-project/ at post 3 and you will see the haggis is F/Sgt H P Hever. I think your guy is W/O Graham Wilson. It would be nice to list each crew member by pictograph. "Cheese" Lemon is the flying lemon (below the cheese) in the middle.
  2. Certainly interesting but nobody would find it in a thread about Wellingtons - probably best in a new topic.
  3. @Greg Law - you will be pleased to know that my newly arrived Airfix GR.VIII has perfectly moulded retraction jacks. I was able to help out a friend who was building one by straightening his out in my press. I told him it took hours but it was about 5 minutes work!
  4. Pretty much always a feature of my builds! I went back through my WIP pictures and even cut some picture sections out in an attempt to stimulate my memory but I can't think of anything. They look as though they went together okay........ The cowlings are not permanently attached in this picture.
  5. I had no real problems with them in my build (top of this page). I agree they are a little unusual in assembly but they fitted okay. I'll do a GR.VIII next and report back in 2020!
  6. The Morse code appears on the new GR.VIII Wellington too, as you would expect. I never noticed it in the one I built but, like the rest of the invisible internal detail, I know it's there!
  7. Pretty good job on a basic kit! Nice colour scheme too. For a full take on all the available Javelin kits look here............
  8. Very nice work on this challenging kit. A pretty good job on the colour and the weathering. They generally started life as a sort of satin finish but the harsh conditions soon turned them completely matt. The rectangular object next to the diamond shaped aerial is the folded-up aerial! The SH kit is less work but it looks like you enjoy a challenge!
  9. Thanks for the nice comments from all of you. The two-tone one features in the kit decaIs of the boxing I made. Here's a model by Peter Davis of ACTSMS in that scheme K.O.P. markings - looking at the pictures with @GrzeM's articles on the Arma site it seems that the painted-out version that Techmod also gives on their sheet (Post 11 above) is much too neat.
  10. Indeed, there are no alternatives. This is really excellent work going on here, much more fun that building a new, perfectly fitting kit. (:>) [isn't it?????]
  11. Here is a potential match to the restored P.11c as it appears in photographs today although in the video it seems lighter, more milk chocolate than dark! Here's a summary of the colours I have tried so far. with a FS 30118 chip for reference only Maybe @GrzeM needs to start a "Polish Colours" thread in WW2 as the information from several people here is useful but buried.
  12. The Mairzy Doats logo should be in the kit as I emailed a large jpeg to Vaclav with an explanation it was in a language other then Czech or English. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mairzy_Doats I know a ditty nutty as a fruitcake Goofy as a goon and silly as a loon Some call it pretty, others call it crazy But they all sing this tune: Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you? Yes! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you? If the words sound queer and funny to your ear, a little bit jumbled and jivey Sing "Mares eat oats and does eat oats and little lambs eat ivy" Oh! Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you-oo? A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?
