  1. This will be my little entry (probably the first of a few) for the GB. May follow this up with a Beaufort and possibly start my long in planning Superfreighter. Always liked the look of this beauty, but never made one, even as a kid. Picked this up whilst perusing a model shop for something different . This model will be my mojo restorer as i havent built anything since a paint disaster on a Halifax (still on my shelf) at the start of January! Obligatory shots: Box Sprues in bag Just waiting for the kick off.
  2. Morning/afternnon/eveing all! I've just ordered an Airfix 1/72 Bristol Bulldog and intend to build it as an RAAF machine from the late 1930s but have a couple of questions about this aircraft in Australian service. First question regards the use of a tailwheel in place of a tailskid. I remember seeing a photograph of an RAAF Bulldog with a tailwheel, but can't remember if the caption mentioned it as an experiment or as standard. Could someone enlighten me on this or show that age plays tricks with memory? Second question is in regard to the roundel colours. I remember a discussion on BM about the blue in RAAF roundels being different from that used in the RAF. Was this the wartime roundel colour or prewar as well? TIA! DennisTheBear
  3. Hello everyone... Id like to present my Airfix 1/72 Bristol Bulldog. It was built in the Nordic group build and wears Finnish markings. It represents on of two IIa Bulldogs donated by Sweden to Finland for defense in the 1939-40 winter war. They were used as trainers in the Finnish Air force. Here is a link to the build. https://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235066999-bulldog/ I did attempt to rig this but there was a minor disaster during the attempt. I think I was lucky just to rescue the build itself. Questions, comments, and or thoughts ? Dennis
  4. Hello everyone. I've been sorting out old kits to record them for my website before they fall apart. I unearthed these two, built about ten years ago for a series of Silver Wing models I completed. They're in pretty good shape, the TM two seater a simple conversion by tilting back the wings, cutting and detailing a second cockpit, adding new panels from thin sheets of plasticard and a new tail. I can't remember what paints I used, probably a combination of Halfords BMW Silver spray and Alclad. The decals for the TM came from the kit and spares box, whilst the 29 Sqn markings for the single seater were off a very nice RAFDec sheet. Rigged with fishing line darkened with a sharpie. Probably one of my favourite Airfix kits of all time, it still makes into a great model. Haris
  5. Apparently the U.S. tested two Bristol Bulldogs, this represents the first which crashed after an aileron failure. The Airfix 1/72 kit rigged with stainless steel wire.
  6. Hi, I would like to show next old English bird from Silver Wings Era (like Shark, Wallace and Wapiti) but involved in a war - the Bristol Bulldog from Airfix. This is also an old kit (coming from beginning of 1970s, as I remember - am I wrong?). I made this model about 10 years ago - and in this time my eyes were sharp without any glasses...- what makes difference at least for me. This is in Spanish Republican Markings - now I realized that perhaps I should put this in "between wars forum". However, I hope that WWII forum is still a proper forum for airplanes from Spanish Civil War, since it was a prelludium to WWII. So, please enjoy the photos... Any comments welcomed!
