  1. Hi all, I've been super excited about this group build for a while, and even more excited when I saw that the rules were going to allow Bomber Command aircraft on anti-invasion operations! So, inspired by Larry Donnelly's excellent book "The Other Few", my plan for my first entry in this group build is to build an Airfix Blenheim as one from the many Blenheim squadrons that made nightly raids on the "invasion ports" - the ports on the French coast in which large numbers of barges were building as the Germans prepared for Operation Sealion, the invasion of Britain. Her
  2. I'm about to dive into my1/48 Classic Airframes Blenheim Mk IV, and I'm wondering, has anyone come up with a good way to add the teardrop blisters on the canopy side windows that are missing in the kit (other than vacuforming new side windows)? Other than that issue, and the missing triangular window on the windscreen, are there any other issues that may arise with that kit? Thanks, Colin
  3. I've scratchbuilt the twin Browning .303 installation for my Classic Airframes Blenheim IV.f. The guns are cut down .303's from an ICM Spitfire (cut down because the barrels should be 24", and overall length should be 40" and ICM's are way to long), the shells are Aber photo etch, the rest is scratched from plasticard and strip, scrap brass sheet and wire. hope you like ...
  4. I have read in multiple places (books and this very site) that some Blenheim IV's wearing TSS but painted with night or black undersides. Now, does any photographic evidence exist of this? I have MANY photos and without getting into the whole debate of colour recognition in B&W photos, none i have show categorically the TSS and Black schemes. Does anyone know where (if they exist) any photos can be found? Thanks in advance!
  5. I finished this last night; the new-tool Airfix Blenheim IV representing V6028 GBoD which was the aircraft flown by Acting Wing Commander Hughie Idwal Edwards on 04 July 1941 in the low-level raid on Bremen for which he was awarded the Victoria Cross. The kit is a nicely complex but pleasantly easy build so long as you go carefully and do plenty of test-fitting before you commit to glue. The join of the forward fuselage/cockpit to the rear fuselage and wings did not present any problems; I may just have been lucky but it worked first time and gave no hint that it could be troubles
  6. I think I must have Attention Deficit Disorder or something, because I was thinking I would take a break from modelling for a couple of weeks until the start of the French Fancies GB; however less than a week later I find that I am bored (and I used to work in Insurance so believe me I know bored when I see it)... So I thought I'd make a start on something I had been meaning to do for a while, and combine the decals from the Airfix VC Winners set with the new-tool Airfix Blenheim IV to represent the aircraft flown by Acting Wing Commander Hughie Edwards on the Bremen Raid on 4 July 1941 for w
