  1. Hello everybody In full knowledge that there are plenty of these Arma 1:72 Hurricanes milling about I wanted to add my own humble contribution. Its from the Mk. 1 Expert Set in the kit scheme of Josef Frantisek of 303 Squadron. I finished it last week and am posting now because we are at the 80th Anniversary of the formal establishment of 303 Squadron and completely co-incidentally, as I was applying the last touches, the Historic Aircraft Collection were kind enough to also reveal the public certification flight of a 1:1 scale edition ;-) from Duxford. In
  2. "Certain that their target was London, Park was no longer intercepting as far forward as he used to...He would hit them hardest at the point the Germans called 'die grosse Angstkurve uber London' ('the dreaded big turn over London)...Park had given his young braves height and surprise...As his forward units engaged, Park ordered up his own reserve, his Praetorian Guard of 602 and 303..." - Stephen Bungay, The Most Dangerous Enemy My plan is to build a Polish 303 Sqn Hurricane from the new 1/72 Arma kit, and 602 Sqn Spitfire from the already venerable 1/72 Airfix kit (probably
  3. I've been wanting to do this triple build for a while now and I'm glad it's complete (my fourth Spitfire triple since December!), but it may be time to go back to single builds. All three are 1/72 Spitfire V's representing 'A', 'B' and 'C' wing versions, all belonging to 303 (Polish) Sqn. The build was part of the Spitfire Group Build dedicated to the memory of Edgar Brooks, and the build thread can be found here. First up, a Spitfire VA from the 1/72 Airfix Mk I/IIA kit reperesenting K9871, RF-P, flown by Boleslaw Gladych on 8 Dec 1941, where he, alongside Mieczyslaw Adamek, protected a d
  4. I started this AZ Spitfire IX as a way to jump start a difficult build in the P-38 STGB, and it brought the required good luck. Now it's finished and ready for inspection. I had to scrounge together decals from the kit, aftermarket, and home made in order to depict BS451, RF-M, "Joan" of 303 (Polish) Sqn. The "Joan" was written on the fuselage with a white-ink pen and betrays my poor handwriting abilities. Many profiles of this aircraft show the "Joan" as very small 'block' letters, but the only photo I could find shows it in a flourished cursive script, so that is what I attempted. He
  5. I've been busy trying to get the bench cleared up for this one, the modelling event of the year. I've become an admirer of the Polish 303 'Kosciuszko' Squadron over the past year or two, and I figure this GB is a great opportunity to honor them. I'm planning on building the new tool Airfix kit as L2099, RF-O, one of two 303 fabric winged Hurricanes I've managed to find (the other is L1696). It was used by Walery Zak, Josef Frantisek, Athol Forbes, Marian Belc and Witold Lokuciewski (and that's just the pilots I could find in various sources) to claim victories throughout September and October
  6. Here is my attempt at an AZ 1/72 Spitfire IIB. It is the first short run kit I've started, but the fourth I've finished (managed a few short run P-40's first for the Group Build). It represents the 303 Sqn aircraft of FO Miroslaw Feric (P8385, RF-A) in the summer of 1941, although four different pilots, including Feric, made claims while flying it according to Wojtek Matusiak's 303 Squadron history. The prop and spinner come from the Airfix Mk I/IIA kit, and the rear view mirror and antenna mast were scratched from plasticard. The build thread is here. My cheap camera and lack of photography
