  1. Westland Seaking Mk.43 as used by the Royal Norwegian Air Force, pictures thanks to Mark (Tiger331)
  2. Spitfire Mk. IXe | 1/72 | Eduard flown by W/Cdr Rolf Arne Berg, CO of No. 132 Wing, Twente AB, the Netherlands, winter 1944 – 1945 I finished this on October 20, 2019. It is the Spitfire Mk. IXe from Eduard's "The longest day" dual combo with decals from Eduard's royal boxing of the Mk. IX kindly provided by @Procopius. Since I am roughly half Norwegian, I've wanted to make a collection of all the fighters the Royal Norwegian Air Force has flown. While Rolf Berg was a Norwegian in the RAF, I figured it was a good one to start my collection with because of the prom
  3. Hi all, I'm just about to start building a Kinetic Harrier T4 for the Hawker Siddeley GB and want to build it as an aircraft deployed to Norway with the corresponding winter camo. I have found some pictures of 4 Sqn birds with partial winter camo but would really like to an a/c with the full wrap around where the green is replaced by white. I know that some were painted in that way as I have found pictures online which show single seaters nice and clearly and teasingly show just the extended tail portions of a 2 seater, typical! So if any of you can help with pictures or even
  4. Hi, No 3 finished this year: Norwegian Fokker CVD with Armstrong Siddeley Panther engine, winter camo from April 1940. This is a LF Models short run injection kit which is nice to build, with some weak point of course as for short run one can expact. For examle the resin nose is of different witdth than fuelage and one have to trim it a bit to fit. I based camo on photos presented in this book, which I've got as a gift from my friends some years ago (Magda and Andrzej - many thanks again! ) : Fokker CVD is a unique biplane - no riging only control cables. The whi
  5. Hi, Norwegian recce and light bomber hydroplane, Høver MF 11. After German attack on 9th April 1940 Norwegian airplanes, which survived, were all camouflaged. There are some photos showing those schemes like here: On left there is also He-115. The machine which stands behind it, with partially overpainted number (only "8" left) was subject of my model. I know two kits of MF 11, I did it from vacu kit by Broplan (second is resin one by Choroszy Modelbau) Here she is: This was my third build wi
  6. Hi, I started it last July, finished yesterday. This is Frog mould of He 115 C produced now by Revell, I converted it into He 115 N of Norway. The conversion (WIP thread) was presented here:http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/235006240-norwegian-he-115-in-172/. The photo of this machine, which inspired me to construct it is that one: There is also a thread in WWII part on caputred in England ex-Norwegian He-115s http://www.britmodeller.com/forums/index.php?/topic/63595-captured-heinkel-115/&page=4 where Mr. Kjetil Akra wa
  7. I have an old Humbrol issue of the Heller 1/72 Gladiator Mk1/II. The box art features N5908 FoHE with blue spinner, cowling and rudder. I suspect the wheel covers when fitted would have been blue too. A trawl through Google has only thrown up photos of the restored N5641 GoHE in a museum in Norway with those markings. (Including an interesting on this forum from a while ago.) My question is did these aircraft, so hurriedly deployed to Norway, actually have the blue applied to their various bits? The 2 or 3 books on Gladdies that I have offer no clues. I'd like to do this
  8. Hi, it's been announced that Norway's newly restored CF-104D will be at the Sola/Stavanger Airshow this June and I'm really itching to go there. Has anyone been to the show and has done it as a weekend trip with flights and hotel? I'm thinking about arriving Friday and leaving again either Saturday or Sunday, staying in a hotel near/next to the airport. Can everything be reached on foot? If leaving Sunday afternoon, could I still watch some of Sunday's show, either from the showground itself, or from the hotel or airport terminal? How does this work anyway with havin
  9. This is my first and exceedingly delayed entry in the group build, an Airfix Hurricane IIb from the Operation Torch set. This will be a purely out-of-the-box build as FN-D of 331 (Norwegian) Squadron, based in Skeabrae in the autumn of 1941. I bought this kit from Mikemx and it came in a Tamiya Zero box, so here are the sprues sans box shot: The IIb wing unique to the Airfix Club boxings of the Hurricane IIc: The Vingtor decals set: The instructions call for Medium Sea Grey/Dark Green/ a very dark 'mixed grey', which they say could be as dark as Extra Dark Sea Grey. I should have the
  10. I thought I'd move beyond my regular "plane at rest on a 6x6 tile" and see if I could expand to a "plane in flight on a 6x6 tile". I've always had an affinity for the Harrier, particularly the GR3 and GR7/9 and remember getting the GR3 as my second kit at the age of about 9 so this will be my subject of this build. Details: Airfix GR3. Eduard PE detailing. Freightdog fin replacement. Trees and base details yet to be sourced. I've done a few sketches of what I'd like this to look like but I don't think my drawing skills are up to much so I'm reluctant to share them here! I want to
  11. Hi gents, I've just finished this - the Airfix Gloster Gladiator in the markings of an aircraft of the Norwegian Jagevingen (Fighter Flight) at Fornebu, Oslo in April 1940 - decals from the DP Casper 'Forgotten Operations - Weserübung' decal sheet DPC72015: This aircraft, flown by Sergeant Kristian Fredrik Schye of the Royal Norwegian Air Force, was engaged in combat with the Luftwaffe on 09 April 1940. Sgt Schye brought down a Bf110C of 1./ZG76 (the M8+FH flown by Unteroffizier Helmut Mütschele and gunner Gefreiter Karl Lorey) but minutes later was himself shot down by Leutnant H
  12. Hi, This is my latest build, a RNoAF F-16 MLU. I used the Eduard NATO Falcons kit, i.e. Kinetic, together with decals from Vingtor and a PJ pilot in the office. As Eduard is adding resin and PE to the Kinetic kit the build is more or less OOB, just some wiring added. I have added a decent amount of weapons from the kit and Hasegawas Weapons set to make it look like pictures that I found on the web taken at Souda Bay, Crete, during the Libya Air War. I always wanted to make a Norwegian F-16, but it is rather difficult to get all over one tone grey schemes to come alive but I gave
