  1. I'm not doing anything fancy to this one, a nice somewhat simple kit. I started this about a week ago and well, i'm already at the painting stage (almost) so a bit of a catch up is needed. Cockpit Its fairly empty in here but i couldn't be bothered to do anything. I used Milliput to block up the holes in the side for the wing fitting. I used interior green mixed with a little bit of RAF dark green to darken it up a little bit, i also used a sponge and silver to imitate chipping. As i didn't have any blue, i had to use green (can't remember what type) for the crew
  2. I can only see it on ADSBExchange and Flightaware. Looks like a positioning flight from Shawbury to Coventry. Rick.
  3. The night before the humiliations of a previous war were symbolically exorcised in a railway carriage at Compi├Ęgne, an Avro Anson took off from RAF Wyton and headed north. The crew of two consisted of a pilot, Flight Lt. (as he then was) H. E. Bufton, and a radio operator Cpl. Dennis Mackie - neither of whom had been briefed as to the true nature of their mission. What these two men achieved in the night sky on June 21st, 1940 (itself a culmination of intelligence efforts on the part of many unheralded individuals) was as critical to the war effort as the mission report was dry and undemonstra
  4. I am starting to work on the interior now of the 1/48 Anson using the Classic Airframes boxing of it. I really dislike the amount of resin used in these kits as they use it for many parts that don't need it eg the framing is poorly cast and chunks of it are going to be replaced with plastic rod. The interior green needs some more work and I have yet to paint some of the detail areas. At this stage I am tossing up between A4-6 of 22 SQN circa 1939 or No 1 Comms Flight circa 1941. Both are in overall aluminum and have their gun turrets. I have put in a bit more of the interior and plan to
  5. Avro Anson I 206 Squadron, Coastal Command, 1939 This is the Classic Airframes kit of the early version of the Anson with the longer sloping windscreen. The kit is a pretty straightforward build with no vices. The model was painted with a combination of Mr Paint, Mr Color and Tamiya paints then finished with a layer of Testor's Dullcote. The national markings were applied using Montex masks but the codes and serials came from the kit decals. More
  6. Some of you may remember this Anson. It was submitted for the "Training Types" GB around 2 years ago, but not proceeded with. Well, I am back and on to it now, and I have found out some more about it! L9164 was the last British casualty of 18th August 1940. Those who know about the Battle of Britain, and readers of the book "The Hardest Day" by Dr. Alfred Price will be aware that this was the day of the greatest loss, by both sides, during the Battle of Britain. Anson L9164 was involved in night flying over RAF Windrush on the evening of 18th August 1940. It was attacked by an He1
  7. I would like to make my SEAC collection something more than standard set of Hurricane, Thunderbolt, Spitfire, Mohawk, Vengeance, Blenheim, Beaufighter, Mosquito, Auster, Sentinel, Lysander, Harvard, Expeditor, Dakota, Swordfish, Catalina, Sunderland, Walrus, Warwick, Wellington, Mitchell and Liberator. So I'm looking for pictures of other SEAC aircraft wearing "India White" roundels. Among "suspected" types there are: Anson, Oxford, Hudson, Tiger Moth, Proctor and (maybe) Master and Magister. All other RAF & FAA types used in this theatre (Audax, Hart, Hind, Wapiti, Valentia, Vildebeest,

    Hi all, Well, to be honest, I've been on bit of a break from modelling due to revising for my exams I'm on revision timetable so I finally have some time free to chat here! Anyway, I want to build an Avro Anson in ATA service. I'm going to get myself the Airfix kit but I'm not going to get any PE, I'm going to make the necessary cockpit framework myself. I was just wondering if there are any resin/metal/plastic engines, engine cowls, wheels for an Anson. I'd also be very grateful if anyone could post pictures/info on the ATA Ansons, Argus' and other ferry aircaft Cheers, Ben.
  10. Well it's been a long old build but here she is! This Annie depicts a late war Air Transport Auxiliary bird that flew ferry missions throughout the war and eventually flew to the continent, picking up a lot of wear and tear during its career. It is based on Anson N5334 which (I think) was at White Waltham. Ansons used by the ATA were worked extremely hard and never really got any lime light for their efforts. They ferried ATA pilots all over the UK, without radio or instrument flying capability. Following D-Day many Ansons were stripped out and used to fly medicine, newspapers, ferry pilots a
  11. Hi all, Finally got my mits on the SH Anson so I'll do a WIP for it over the next week. I'm actually at a family meeting type thing this weekend, so I wont start building till sunday evening. However, I do have shots of the kit; Unfortunately this resin engine cowl is outta shape :/ Some lovely PE Nicely printed Crisp, clean and clear Cheers, Ben.
  12. Hi all, as some of you have seen in the WIP pages, I have been building an Avro Anson Mk.1 in memory of my grandfather, as well as in honour of all of the unsung heroes of training command during WW2. they worked just as hard to train the air crews of the UK and Commonwealth to fly, navigate, bomb and stay alive. My grandfather was stationed at RAF Wigtown initially, followed by a spell at RAF Bishops Court in NI, as a radio engineer on the Ansons. So here it is- the premise being that when the aircrews got home, their day was done, but the groundcrews would work long into the night to get th
