  1. CAC CA-19 Boomerang 'Jungle Scouts' 1:72 Special Hobby (72426) The Boomerang was a WWII fighter designed and made in Australia by the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC). The design stemmed from the CAC Wirraway, this was a licence built North American NA-16 (more commonly known as the Harvard). Australia had realised in the 1930s that Japan had expansionist ideas and would need its own aircraft industry. this is one reason North American were approached to licence build the Wirraway. After WWII broke out and with the traditional supply of aircraft from the U
  2. Second one for the year. The fuselage, cockpit tub and intake fit are a bit of a challenge but once together it makes for a very nice example of this variant of the venerable Sabre. This one is depicted as A94-946 or the Royal Australian Air Force Aircraft Research and Development Unit / ARDU. This aircraft albeit in an updated scheme was used for the Sidewinder trials. Finished in Tamiya's AS12 rattle can silver decanted into my airbrush. The dayglo red was a home brew based on period photos and video. De
  3. Hi all, Another from the paint shop. I'm not so proud of this one as I had a few issues along the way, particularly with the Humbrol red ;). She is a Fujimi F-86F converted to a CAC Sabre using a Tasman set. However, I wanted to retain more detail than the Tasman set offers and also feature open speed brakes. So I set about blending the two, essentially inserting the Tasman lower nose in to the Fujimi and then inserting the NACA vents from the Tasman also. It isn't entirely accurate but I got to the stage that I just wanted her done. The biggest disaster was when I used
  4. Building Brick’s Sabre in 1/32 Scale KLP Publishing Online publishing is now starting to find its way into the modelling community with a few new & existing publishers. KLP Publishing is one of the new online publishers, specialising in eBooks for the scale aircraft modelling community. Their debut title is, Building Brick’s Sabre in 1/32 Scale: A Scale Tribute to K.J. "Brick" Bricknell. Written by master modeller Eric Galliers, this 104-page digital book shows you how he built his award-winning 1/32 scale model of K.J. “Brick” Bricknell’s CAC Sabre. There is c
  5. CAC CA-9 Wirraway 1:48 Special Hobby The CAC Wirraway was a trainer aircraft developed by the Australian Commonwealth Aircraft Company. It was based on the North American NA-16, a design which was itself developed into the T-6 Texan. CAC altered the basic design of the NA-16 by adding a second forward firing machine gun and strengthening the wings to enable the aircraft to perform dive bombing missions. A total of 755 Wirraways were built by the time production ended and the design also served as the basis for the Boomerang emergency fighter. Aside from fulfilling
  6. CAC Boomerang A-46-228 1/72 & 1/48 Red Roo Models A46-228, BF-M "Miss Albany" had a fairly short life with the RAAF. Through the factory via depots it arrived at 5 Sqn RAAF on 11th May 1945. It was then scheduled in November that year for limited spares removal, which became final with a full authorisation in January 1946. The aircraft was finished in overall Foliage Green with white tail surfaces, and leading edges. Conclusion This is a great little sheet for decals of a specific Boomerang in late war RAAF colours. Recommended.
  7. Hi all, Is there anyone out there who can confirm with certainty whether this aircraft flew with dayglo red or dayglo orange panels? The decal references say to use Humbrol 205 but I'm not convinced... yet. Any thoughts, help, guidance really welcomed!!! Thanks. Martin
  8. Hi Britmodeller Mates, Another model started while waiting for the bits for the Vampire to arrive. Some parts painted. It is now ready for the fuselage halves to be joined. Closeup of cockpit. It looks pretty good considering I have had the instrument panel in and out many times the control column is now not sitting in the right place and the seat is too high. The instructions are not Airfix, I am pleased with it so far. Thanks for looking. Stephen
  9. The CAC Boomerang, a Detailed Guide Valiant Wings Airframe Album The CAC (Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation) Boomerang has the distinction of being the first combat aircraft designed and manufactured in Australia. Historically at the Start of WWII Australia relied on British manufactured Aircraft, and to a lesser degree some USAAF supplied aircraft. CAC examined the possibility of designing and manufacturing their own fighter, this was a fairly big challenge as only two aircraft were in production at the time locally, the Bristol Beaufort and the CAC Wirraway which was based on the No
  10. Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) Wirraway. Pics thanks to Daniel Cox. Daniel would like to point out that since this aircraft is a flying "warbird" not all of its details are prototypical to how it was when manufactured during the Second World War.
