  1. Just a placeholder for now but once I've progressed my builds in another two GBs a bit further I'm going to start on this - the Handley Page Dart Herald. I have a Novo boxing of this kit with BIA decals, which I won't be using. This will (probably) be Air UK, using decals intended for an F-27 (if they fit ok - if not I have BIA decals as a back-up). This is a bit of nostalgia for me as I remember a couple of flights in Air UK Heralds 38 or 39 years ago. When I was growing up we used to fly from Manchester to the Isle of Man two or three times a year to see my grandparents - until about 1980 th
  2. Don't really know how to start the thread, got lucky and got this kit for Christmas. I've finished the cockpit and I'm really quite proud, interested in what your opinions will be. @Adam Poultney, here's your tag. Rear console Martin baker Mk.3 seats finished Cockpit finished

  5. Victor K.2/SR.2 Update Sets (for Airfix A12009) 1:72 Eduard Released after the original B.2 kit, the K.2/SR.2 edition gives the modeller easy access to build the later tankers, and the strategic reconnaissance variant in addition. Eduard's new range of sets are here to improve on the kit detail in the usual modular manner. Get what you want for the areas you want to be more of a focal point. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that a
  6. I have bought the 1/72 Valom kit of the Handley Page Harrow MkII. It includes decals for a Harrow MkII of 37 Squadron, K7006, in early 1939 and a Harrow MkII of 24 Maintenance Unit, K7028 in 1940. The aircraft from 37 Squadron, K7006, appears to be in standard bomber camouflage - dark green, dark earth uppersurface and black undersurface. However the aircraft from 24 Maintenance Unit appears in drak green and dark earth uppersurface and all yellow undersurface (with the yellow running up to a quite high line on the fuselage). Its K7028 that intrigues me. The yellow wo
  7. Victor B.Mk.2(BS) Air Brakes (72644 for Airfix) 1:72 Eduard Airfix pleased a lot of modellers when they released their new tooling of this awesome Cold War warrior, and we reviewed the majority of the sets from Eduard here. We missed the Air Brakes when a few items got mislaid, so here they are now. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions that are sandwiched between. Supplied on a single brass sheet, this set provi

  11. An extensive review of the new Airfix HP Victior B.2(BS) has been published on the IPMS Nederland website. Check out our English language report at: http://www.ipms.nl/artikelen/recensies/vliegtuigen-militair/2474-airfix-hp-victor-engels.html We have also made a comparison with that good old Matchbox kit.

  12. Victor B.2 Upgrade Sets 1:72 Eduard Since its announcement this kit was the source of much excitement, and now it is on general release it seems to be popular, with supplies selling out quickly. A good kit can always been improved however, which is where Eduard excel. They have released five new sets for the kit, and as always you can pick and choose which ones you want, or your budget dictates. As usual with Eduard's Photo-Etch (PE) and Mask sets, they arrive in a flat resealable package, with a white backing card protecting the contents and the instructions th

  14. Does anyone know the fuselage diameters for the Herald and the Andover/HS748? I just had one of those ideas for taking the rear fuselage off the Welsh Models Andover and putting it on the Welsh Models Herald, with no doubt some other modifications to the tail feathers. I know the Herald had a wider fuselage than the Friendship, and I suspect that the HS748's was also narrower, but would that be sufficient to be seen (or to make x-kitting unworkable) in 1/144? After all, the Herald was the favoured choice for the job on technical/operational grounds, but (as always) other features
  15. Just before Valom release their Sparrow I have finally completed my vacform Contrail version. For anyone interested or who missed the WIP it is here To say it was a little stressful from time to time would be an understatement due largely to the incorrect nose and tail, both of which were ceremoniously removed and replaced..and the canopy is wrong too... etc. I am indebted to John Aero for replacement engines, props and nacelles. The prototype is the one below, but a few months earlier when it had full D Day stripes, look carefully and you can see they have been painted

  21. Handley Page Victor K. Mk.2 Revell (ex Matchbox) 1:72 The Victor was probably most famous for it's introduction in to the RAF as part of the V Force in the strategic bomber role or more specifically to operate as a nuclear deterrent, however it's career as an in-flight refuelling aircraft is where it cemented it's place in RAF history with around 30 years service in this role. First flown at the end of 1952, the B.1 entered operational service with 10 & 15 squadrons in 1958. Whilst the B.1 was designed to operate at high level, the improved B.2 was primarily designed to deliver st

  23. Handley Page HP.52 Hampden. P5436 restored and now at The Canadian Museum of Flight at Langley, British Columbia, Canada. P5436 ditched on a training flight in 1942 and was recovered in 1989. Parts from other recovered Canadian Hampdens were used in its restoration. Pics thanks to Stephen Mills.
  24. Halifax MKIV, pics thanks to Steve N. This is the Halifax MKIV in the National Air Force Museum of Canada. NA337 was dropping supplies to resistance fighters in Norway in April 1945 when she was hit by German flak. The plane ditched in a lake, with only one of the five crew surviving. The wreck was located in 1991, and recovered in 1995. It was remarkably preserved, and nearly complete. The tail section had separated during the crash, and a section of the aft fuselage was missing. The exact chunk of fuselage needed was found in Scotland, where it was being used as a chicken coop. The museum
