  1. Does anyone have good walk-around pictures of the Merlin HC.4. Air Graphics Models are looking for source materials so they can produce a conversion kit. Any help would be appreciated! Cheers, Dave

    1/48 Fleet Air Arm Figure

    PP Models did some 1/48 figures, aircrew and handling crew. I've got sets FIG 401 and FIG 402. I've also got white metal aircrew for the 1/48 Swordfish , Don't know the maker but the label says KSHG 74 (Scale 1:48). Didn't Airwaves produce some white metal figures? Dave The Swordfish figures are Hecker & Goros, listed by Parabellum.

    BAC 1-11 479 ETPS Colour question

    Thanks Dave, that explains why decal manufacturers are fighting shy of producing it. I'll just have to pretend that it has weathered!

    Thanks guys, to me it looks like a mustard yellow with a grey dropped shadow - but I stand to be corrected!

    BAC 1-11 479 ETPS Colour question

    Hi, BAC 1-11-479 (ZE432) was repainted with the ETPS logo in large letters on the forward fuselage. Does anyone have any ideas of the two colours used? It looks Gold ,with a grey shadow, but I'm certain someone must know the true colours Dave

  9. June 1944 - I'm certain something happened then! I know my father nearly got sacked for trying to join up (Reserved occupation - he was working on extracting magnesium from sea water at Hartlepool) He always said that my birth was the reason Germany gave up!

    looking for fairey gannet scale plans

    What model, AS,AEW or T. I think the Warpaint No. 23 will provide all you need. Drawings are to 1/72, so rescaling on a printer/scanner should be no problem. Dave

    The Falcon kit eventually repays the effort. Plenty of excellent examples on the web.
