  1. So here's something new: Douglas Bader's 242 squadron Hurricane in 1/48 scale! OK it's been done before, but not by me, so here goes Why Douglas Bader? Actually why indeed? I don't think I would have liked him, he was iconic, and driven, and crashed lots of planes. On a serious note I see there is quite a lot of Bader-bashing going on, particularly amongst non-Brits - I ask this simple question: Would you rather he be on our side or the opponents? Exactly - I think that's why he merits the admiration and respect of recreating his aircraft The kit will be Air
  2. My next project is the new mould Airfix Hurricane Mk.I, the subject of a number of builds here already. I'll be building mine with Xtradecals markings for Douglas Bader's 242SQN mount out of Duxford during the Battle of Britain. It'll be pretty much out of the box (if I can restrain myself...) The seat and floor are done. Slight weathering of the floor and I've cut the locating lugs off the seat armour so I can fit the seat to the fuselage first, as reviews suggest that's an easier way to go. I've also elected to clamp the spars in place on the lower wing now and will
  3. Hi guys, I'd notice that Hasegawa just released an old tool early spitfire into a brand new box, dedicated to Douglas Bader. Having already Tamiya's Mk.IX, Mk.VIII I was wondering about adding an early mark to my stash. If I'm not surprised or impressed by raised panel lines, wrong or bad shapes and dimensions is much more a problem to me, so can anyone tell me about this, and the overall kit's qualities? I did a quick search, the result being this review, and Cybermodeller in general is way above what I'm looking for. Still good
  4. Great Airfix kit with "Xtradecal" and "Maketar" masks for RAF insignias for Hurricanes. Every opinion,especialy about colors is wellcome.Vallejo color were used. Here are some pictures:
  5. For the build, see http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234997262-tamiya-148-supermarine-spitfire-mkii-douglas-bader/
  6. Group Captain Sir Douglas Robert Steuart Bader CBE, DSO & Bar, DFC & Bar, FRAeS, DL.. That's quite the title... Distinguished Service Order and Bar Distinguished Flying Cross and Bar Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire Knight Bachelor Croix-de Guerre etc.. His history is most probably well known, so I'll just put in some pictures.. in Spitfire MkII P.7966.. Prisoner of war/ special guest at Galland's (l).. Bader in the cockpit of one of Galland's Bf-109's!! new artificial legs were air dropped after a personal request from Galland.. after the war
  7. As the title suggests.. I plan to build in the near future a 1/48 Spitfire as the personal plane of Douglas Bader, W3185. I understand this was an early Mk.Va (probably converted from Mk.I ) Bader's history is probably very well known here, so I won't elaborate. I would like to use 1/48 Tamiya's Spitfire Mk.I, kit 61032 as a basis since I believe this wing is usable for the 8 gun mk.Va wing. I also want to know more about any particulars of this specific plane. I have the Aero Detail book no.8 for the Early Spitfires. 1) Engine: a- can I use the DH three-bladed propeller and spinner as is
  8. Have just started the Airfix 1/48 Spitfire V a as flown by Douglas Bader and have a question regardibg the oil cooler fitted to this aircraft. The instructions show a version with a "D" shaped opening but my reference show a different version with a round hole at the front. The kit does contain another oil cooler and this has a round hole but is the wrong shape in plan. In fact when I think about both types included in the kit box seem wrong. Can anyone throw some light on this subject please? Cheers, Don
