Hi, Back to secondliners. De Havilland DH 90 Dragonfly. One of "missed" (not produced) injection kit in 1/72. For me it bacame so much "missed" that I decided to do her out of scratch. There are some resin but very expencieve. Old vacu is not available, I think. I reported the construction work, together with DH 84 (far from finish as yet) on WIP: http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/234971246-de-havilland-dh-84-dragon-and-dh-90-dragonfly-scratch-conv-172/ (EDIT 26 JUl 2017 - it will be re-available soon I hope) So, this is my the newest production - today, when I was making photos the matt coat was not still very dry I am sorry that I havn't done it in British markings - I was searching for interesting camo for RAF, RAAF or SAAF (preferable - I had hopes for DE/MS/Azure) and I did not found any interesting one. I found some but typical. Thus I was considering Spanish (both sides of Civil War) or Danish (silver, what can be inconvenient for scratch build model) when I found in Net photos of a Dutch one - impossed to Royal Netherland Air Forces, 1940. This particular machine was destroyed during German invasion in 1940 (photos I posted in WIP). Here she is: And two last photos with help of flesh: Thank you for watching I wish all the best for everybody on the BM in New Year 2015! Cheers Jerzy-Wojtek
Hi, Denmark was using few DH-90 Dragonfly before war. There are many photos of all silver painted in net available. However - were the camouflaged during German invasion, or they stayed silver? I suspect, that they should be camouflaged in 1939, as Hawker Nimrods or Gloster Gauntlets. Are there any photos of camouflaged Dragonflies available? It would be an interesting marking to consider for DH90 which I am doing on WIP forum. Now I am planning to do rather a Netherland's one. BTW - are there any interesting British WWII camo for DH 90?
