  1. Avro Lancaster B.II ( A08001) 1:72 Airfix The Lancaster is without doubt one of the most famous aircraft ever to fly and became the back bone of Bomber Command alongside the Halifax in the latter half of WWII. Development was born out of failure in the guise of the Avro Manchester to which history has been unkind because of the unreliable Vulture engines. Convinced that the basic Manchester airframe with an unobstructed full width bomb bay was basically sound, Roy Chadwick and his team designed the Type 683 Manchester III which used a larger wing supporting 4 Mer
  2. 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

  4. Happy Birthday Royal Air Force Today is the 102nd Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force. Two years ago - to the day - I started building this model of an Avro 504K. My intention was to mark the centenary of the Royal Air Force's formation by building an example of an important aircraft that had served in the RNAS, RFC, RAF and many of the commonwealth air arms that followed. It's just as well I remembered the commonwealth because it turns out there's a very good chance that in 1918 this particular airframe was actually in service with the AFC (Australian Flying Corps
  5. Happy Birthday Royal Air Force Today is the 100th Anniversary of the formation of the Royal Air Force. If you did not know that already you are probably on the wrong website. Some time ago I decided that I wanted to mark this occasion by starting a new project on this date and have of late spent much time thinking about what the subject should be. Naturally enough, Spitfires, Hurricanes, Lancasters and myriad of famous post-war types all came to mind, but these are well-covered subjects and so I dwelled on the matter a bit deeper... What about something that was in ser

  13. Reading in the local paper an article on a mysterious airstrip near Bognor, which it turns out was built in 1946 by the Lec Refrigeration co. for their reps, who used to fly Miles Gemini and Austers to meet clients! Those were the days... in 1957 they bought an Avro Anson for use as a flying fridge and freezer showroom. When you think about it an Anson is ideal shape for fridges, although the sloping floor might have been interesting. Now there's an obscure modelling subject!
  14. Hello fellas. Fellas. I have quick question. Finishing build of Avro Shackleton and to be honest, I do have some problems to find right colour or lets say, mix proper colour. Not using revell colours. And I just bought Tamyia XF-82 which is Ocean grey 2 (RAF). Will it be OK for that model?
  15. Yesterday, I was watching Raiders of the Lost Ark and it was quite appropriate because today I collected the Holy Grail of Bomber Command modelling, the 48 scale Paragon Manchester conversion! Before I go any further, I can't thank to Dennis (Spitfire) enough for selling it to me without needing a mortgage to afford it, so I intend to do it justice and have it done for Telford. Whilst I'm at it, I'm also doing the Paragon 1/48 Lincoln conversion with an equally big thanks to Chris (Cngaero) who sold that to me for an equally reasonable price, that's 2 Christmas's so far this year a
  16. Hello for everyone. When an idea is presented, we analyze the feasibility and design technician solution containing all basic elements of the new product and new models project. I have the pleasure to welcome all modellers, guests, participants and friends to the fourth of my WIP here on a forum and to the new one topic. I am looking at the watch, getting a bit worried because I think it is necessary to inform you today about how I intend to approach the work on for the triple AVRO 707 assembly. To tell the truth, I really like a British aircrafts and jet fighters
  17. Anyone fancy a go at this? Vulcan XL319, in 2010 with snow overload. Or the recovery 10 days later.....
  18. Hi all, With the Vulcan and X-Wing off the benches, and the Gnats driving me up the wall, it's time to start something else. So, the Lancaster is the next stop. The Revell 1/72 Dambuster to be more accurate. We have plenty of goodies for this build: A couple of sets of Master brass gun barrels, Eduard masking set for obvious reasons, Aires wheels, and Eduard seatbelts and cockpit photoetch set. I figured that a lot of detail will be seen through the green house on top of this kit, so I've gone to town. Nothing has happened to this build yet, other than washing the sprues as I seem t
  19. Good evening, first proper build post from me on the forums! Well it all started after a trip to the Midland Air Museum in Coventry where I got the fantastic chance to get inside an Avro Vulcan and see what it was like inside, and by god what an aircraft! I wish I had taken a lot more photographs but thanks to a thread that I found on the forums prior to joining, I found a nice walkaround inside of the cockpit. This was then followed by an enquiry to the Vulcan To The Sky Trust and after they gave me a few pages of the crew manual showing the details of both the front and rear cockpit, they a
  20. 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
  21. This month Airfix are releasing their long awaited Avro Shackleton AEW.2 Model Kit in 1/72 Scale. This Cold War Era variant of the MR 2 was used as an Airborne Early Warning Aircraft, and this particular kit contains decals for "Ermintrude" and "Dougal" which flew with No.8 Squadron based at RAF Lossiemouth in 1979 and 1980 respectively. "Dougal" is currently preserved in the Museum of Science & Industry in Manchester, England. Place your pre-orders soon to avoid disappointment, this is going to be a popular kit!

  24. Hello, I've been musing myself with making a vac canopy for my model (since the Pavla Vac doesn't fit the Revell 1/72nd kit). I have noticed that some frames are internal, to which the perspex is just screwed-on. Both wartime and restored example walk-arounds seem to confirm this: But then, I found some more (both wartime and restored example) photos, which depict these (and all other) as external: Some drawings clearly show them as internal: While this one shows all frames of the same depth (i.e. external)
  25. Good morning! The postman dropped off the photo-etch pieces this morning so I thought I might as well start So, the base kit will be the old Airfix 1:72 Avro Vulcan, with aftermarket bits including: -Freightdog Resin 201 Series Tailpipes -White Ensign Models (WEM) Vulcan Interior -WEM Vulcan Exterior -WEM Vulcan Bomb Bay This build will be significant for two reasons; first of all, with AS exams starting in two weeks and proceeding over the next couple of months, it will be something to keep me sane! Secondly, it will be the first build where I've already had a go at doing some build-
