  1. I'm using the Kitty Hawk T-6 in 1/32nd scale to build a Harvard IIa as flown at 20 SFTS S Rhodesia in 1944. There are subtle distinctions between the American T-6 and the RAF Harvard, most noticeably the canopy but also the IPs and other cockpit fitments, the position and design of wing navigation lights etc. There are inherent issues with the KH kit, mainly the spacing of the landing gear legs, the wheels supplied which are far too thin and the prop blades which are too long. I'm going to overcome these shortcoming with this model by having the aircraft wheels up and using prop blur "blades" but my first KH Harvard, also of 20 SFTS addressed all of these issues: Max
  2. I'm building the KH Texan as a Harvard IIa as based at 20 SFTS, Cranborne, S Rhodesia in 1943/4. She will be finished as EX490 - there's a very good colour picture of her for reference purposes: and my father flew her during his training phase on a QGH controlled descent through cloud exercise: I'm using the AlleyCat resin canopy set for the corrected canopy, Eduard seat belts, AMS resin's 9' corrected props, Airscale's instrument dials for the corrected instrument panels that I'll be making and SAC's whitemetal undercarriage legs: I'm also having Dad sitting waiting patiently for some essential maintenance to be done: I'm opening up the nose area to show the engine, hydraulic lines, oil tank etc which is otherwise completely wasted in this kit. More soon. Max
  3. It was my original intention to model one of these Tiger Moths, T-7938 since my father flew her a month beforehand, but in the meantime I've picked up a couple of the venerable Revell 1/32nd scale Tiger Moths, so "in for a penny, in for a pound" I've decided to do a dio of the crash! Madness??? Yes, probably.....challenging definitely but I think it'll be fun. It gives me licence to model the extent of the damage as much, or as little as I think. I'll probably start off before cutting plastic by doing a few sketches from different angles so that I have a plan of attack, as it were. I'm also doing a little research on the cadet pilot killed in the 14 May 43 crash, Sergeant Ernest Thomas Rees from Llanelli. He's an interesting character because he was 27 years old (most like Dad were 18 or 19), married and had been mentioned in despatches! So far I've found out that his MiD was during the Battle of Britain where he was commended for "gallant and distinguished service", presumably as ground crew. I've got a small feature asking for info from any family members being published in next week's Llanelli Star newspaper, keeping my fingers crossed. Max
  4. Well it's been a while, I see that I started her in May of last year, but my Harvard of the Rhodesian Air Training Group circa 1943 is finally complete, though not quite in her diorama that I have planned. The final stage was some weathering using Phil Flory's Dark Dirt - judiciously applied it's highlighted all the lovely rivet detail on the KH kit. Max
