This thread is dedicated to support vehicles that keep our great airplanes ready for action. You're invited to add anything with wheels (or tracks) that complements your plane models. All scales and time periods are welcome. I, for my part, focus on US vehicles which fit my areas of interest. A few of those may serve as introduction (please click pictures for more details) - And now, scroll down and find scores of wonderful vehicles and other airfield accessories. Thanks for joining, Michael
Type W Loader - The Wendy.
Zone19 posted a topic in Aircraft Cold WarLong Time no posting...Well I'm back at the bench, mainly due to the fact I have had a replacement knee and life is very slow at the moment. But I need to keep my mind active rather than binge watching shows on TV or Netflix!! Any way, some might remember, that I was asking about a Type W Loader, more commonly known to the Armament Fraternity as a 'Wendy' (See Below), and if there was anyone who could build one, as I have the plans, but alas no one could help. This was the main work horse of the Armament Branch on RAF Squadrons, and I could find no one who had ever made one. I spoke with David at Flightpath, who was very helpful, but not willing to create this, but put me onto Neil at Aircraft in Miniature(AIM), who bit my hand off and has already created the CAD design for this (Below) and will be selling the Wendy through Hannants, in 1/72nd and and 1/32nd scale, not 48 or 24. They will be available for pre-order soon, and as soon as I know I will pop it on here, so get an alert set up if you'd like one. Below are some screen shots: Cheers, Zone
