  1. Does anyone know what squadron codes Spitfire N3040 wore at the time it crashed in Horsmonden on 18th August 1940, piloted by Robert Stanford Tuck? Will
  2. I am doing a liberator for the daughter of the pilot of this aircraft who is sending me information about her dad and the actual aircraft. I was wondering if anybody has come accross the aircraft decals for teddy bear for the 1/48 scale Monogram kit The aircraft crashed in 1944 killing all on board after returning from an anti sub mission over the atlantic at Porlock weir somerset (just below porlock hill). Details I have are The words, REDDY TEDDY are red and outlined in black The bear is brown and tan. His hat and coat are black. His bowtie is red. His hatband looks like it is medium blue with a white highlight. His cane is black with a brown head. His gloves, collar, cuffs and spats are white. His eyes, claws and nose are black. His tongue is red I dont know what shades the colours are??? If there are no decals available then I would pay for someone to do a drawing that would be the right size for me to print out on inkjet paper eg saved as a word doc so all I have to do is print on an A4 sheet. This is the man who piloted the Liberator that crashed. William Jonreau Williams II I need to have ot finished by remembrance day 2015 as the daughter is coming from the states to Dunster to the service and I am not sure if it is going home with her or staying at the school Many thanks in advance Rodders
  3. Tamiya Rover 7 finished as an RAF Crash Rescue Ambulance.
  4. I have decided to join this GB with one of my 1/48th scale Airfix Lynx kits. I will finish it as Danish Lynx Mk. 90B S-249 as it was shortly before crashing off the coast/harbour in Greenland in 2011. Luckily - and perhaps due to the RN exchange pilot's skills - the crew escaped the crash without serious injuries. Apart from the Airfix kit I will use decals from the Belcher Bits resin Lynx and some details from the Eduard sets. This is S-249 as it looked in 2004: I have just opened the Airfix kit and started cleaning some of the larger parts. Jens
  5. Hi all An Embraer 120, 5N-BJY, of Associated Aviation has crashed on take off from Lagos Airport. 27 People were on board the plane. It appears to have had an engine failure on take off and crashed within the airport perimeters. At least 15 confirmed dead. RIP Bradley EDIT: Spelling
  6. 30 September 1944 a De Havilland Mosquito of Royal Canadian Airforce crashed in the danish forest Gribskov about 10km from my home. This build is meant as a tribute to the brave pilots that gave their lifes for freedom. In the afternoon of 30 September 1944 the Royal Canadian Air Force 418 Squadron had 4 Day Ranger missions to Germany, Austria and Denmark. The mission to Denmark, carried out by 2 Mosquitos, had fatal consequences for one of the planes and its crew. The 2 planes were TH-W, NS906 with Flight Lieutenant (Pilot) R. H. Thomas and Flying Officer (Navigator) G. J. Allin and TH-S, HJ821 with Flight Lieutenant (Pilot) H. E. Miller and Sergeant (Navigator) W. Hooper. These Mosquitos took off from RAF Coltishall at 15.25 hours danish time. Their mission was to shoot down and/or destroy as many German planes as possible at the airfield at Grove (Fliegerhorst Grove - Karup), the airfields at Aalborg (Aalborg West, Rødslet, now Aalborg Airport - and Aalborg East) and Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup. At Aalborg the 2 planes engaged a German Bf109 fighter which was shot down. Another Bf109 was approached but escaped. From here they flew over Sjællands Odde to close to Hvalsø in the central part of Sjælland (Zealand), where they attacked the locomotive of a passenger train. Then the planes flew in a crescent over the Køge Bugt (Bay) and over Copenhagen Airport. When they came over the Sound they were exposed to flak from flak-batteries in Flakfortet and Middelgrundsfortet. At full speed the planes flew to the north following the Sound till they passed the coast of North Zealand at about Espergærde. The two pilots had radio contact when they flew over Esrum Sø (Esrum Lake). They had not been hit by flak. One minute later the Mosquito with Thomas and Allin hit two tall trees near Gribskovlejren. The left tailplane was torn off and the plane crashed. The plane hit the ground in a narrow angle and ploughed a 300 meter long track in the ground. The plane stopped about 800 meters from where it hit the trees. As this point the two crew members where more than likely both dead. The cockpit was completely burned out, apparently because the incendiary ammunition had made a huge shooting flame into the cockpit. Shortly after Miller and Hooper noted that they had lost radio and visual contact with NS906. They took a course that would bring them back to their base in England as fast as possible. When they passed between Skovby and Holse, app. 8 km south west of Bogense in Fyn (Funen), they attacked what they believed was a black German staff car. Actually it was a taxi from Bogense. The passenger was killed and the driver was injured. Miller and Hooper left Denmark north of Rømø at 19.00 hours. They landed after a flight of nearly 2,000 km in Coltishall Airfield to a debriefing at 20.50 hours. The entire mission had lasted 5½ hours and cost the lives of half of the aircrew. For 68 years one of the big questions has been where the bodies of the two airmen are. Apparently the Germans removed them in spite of serious attempts from the local vicar to have them handed over, so they could have a decent burial. However, the Germans refused that. The local citizens raised a memorial stone at the crash site. Translated to english the inscription says something like this: "For the freedom of Denmark we thank God On this place fell two messengers They came from England to the coast of Denmark And brought arms to the fight of the country They bought us freedom with their deaths God give them piece in the womb of Denmark" Short about the model: This is the Tamiya Mosquito 1/48 kit. It fell together without problems. I used an Eduard PE set for interior and exterior, resin wheels and mud guards and turned brass barrels. Paint was xtracrylix, which I have become quite fond of. The roundels and codes are painted, only serial numbers and stencils are decals. The model was weathered using Flory Models dark wash, thin layers of oil paints for streaks and airbrushed alcohol tinted with Tamiya paints. Thanks for watching!
