  1. My first completion of 2021. Revel 1/72 Sopwith Triplane (mainly) OOB. Rigged with EZline.. Really enjoyed this little kit as a departure from my main theme of Royal Navy Aces (ooops)... Sopwith Triplane N5493 8 Squadron Royal Naval Air Service Saint Eloi, Nord Pas De Calais July 1917 Flight Lieutenant Robert A Little Thanks for looking in
  2. Model T RNAS Armoured Car (35669) 1:35 ICM via Hannants WWI was the first war to feature mechanisation with truck and tanks new to the battlefield. It would not be long before the Model T was pressed into use, and one into an armoured car. In 1915, Commander Oliver Stillingfleet Locker Lampson took an expeditionary force to fight on the Eastern Front through Russia and Persia. Joining him were at least 10 specially modified 'Model X Ford' Armoured Cars. The RNAS developed armoured cars for recon and to rescue downed pilots. The Model T version would follow the mor
  3. Evening all Just thought I'd introduce myself - I was going to say I'm new around here, but actually it turns out I registered on this forum back in 2015 . . . just haven't been a very active poster I'm coming back to modelling after a very long break (35+ years to be precise, although I did half complete a few things along the way) , you know how it is, girls, motorbikes, children, jobs, houses, etc. all get in the way (and not necessarily in that order) My passion is RNAS/FAA aircraft, and preferably in the larger scales, eg 1:48 or 1:32 I
  4. I have a small diorama on the go and I want to build a model of the Airframe Repair Shop (ARS) at Yeoviliton Naval Air Station as a background. This building is the one that has five raised roof sections, it can be viewed on Google Earth. Does anyone have any images of this building, from ground level, perhaps taken during Air Days etc? I would be grateful if any views could be posted here, oor sent to me by pm. Thanks. Mike
  5. Here is my bash at the Airfix BE2c. Straight OOB. Went together really well and looks a nice little machine. The boxing has two options that flown by William Leefe Robinson of 39 Squadron RFC, in which he shot down a Zeppelin. I chose the RNAS option which doesn't identify the squadron but is the Royal Naval Air Squadron East Fortune, East Lothian, December 1916. I chose this one due to my FAA/RNAS interests, the option for the rockets on the struts and the fact I had worked a little at East Fortune Hospital, which is on the same basic site, back in the '80's. The WIP can be found http://w
  6. I've finished my Seafire in the Spitfire GB and before finishing the Draagonfly in the Helicopter GB (I have lost my MoJo on it a little) so rather than do the sensible thing I've decide to embark on this. I'm going to do the RNAS option, partly as it fits into my Royal Navy aircraft collection but more for the fact it's an East Fortune based aircraft and I worked on and off at the old East Fortune hospital a few years back. And the rockets on the outer struts look great.
  7. Does anyone know if 'The Royal Naval Air Service At War' by Philip Jarrett & Jack Meadows was ever published? It was going to be published by Flight Recorder Publications Ltd in 2007, but it seems that although retailers like Amazon and Waterstones generated pages for customers to order it (e.g. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Royal-Naval-Air-Service-War/dp/0955426804), the book never reached the shelves. Has another publisher picked up the rights? Regards Simon
  8. Thrill a minute stuff, this modelling caper, innit? I did eventually get my EE Lightning GB Hasegawa F Mk.6 completed, albeit somewhat ex post facto. There's a couple of thingies on the bench at the moment that are almost complete (a Hasegawa Vanship from the anime 'Last Exile' and a Revell RifRaf and his Spitsfire), along with a couple of others (OK, a couple of couples, plus a few) that are further away from completion, including my entries in both the Lesser Built AF GB and the French Fancy GB... As a result, the 2 almost complete ones will take building precedence, the rest will go to the
  9. Evening all, Seeing as my RIAT retrospective proved quite popular, I thought I'd share another bunch of shots from my second busiest show of the year. Yeovilton is essentially my local airfield, and I try to spend as much time as I can up there, especially during the show week, and with no clash with Flying Legends, I was able to spend a full four days up there from the Friday to the Monday to see pretty much everything arrive, display and depart the show. So then, Friday, which was spent outside the airfield, largely on the fence at the 09 end of the runway, which is a superb location for t
  10. As the Nieuport 17 is coming along well, I thought I might try and build a third kit for this GB, the HR Model Nieuport 10, in the "France and Early RNAS" boxing. The name of the boxing is something of a misnomer, as it includes only one RNAS option amid a sea of French (and one American) markings. The RNAS 'plane, 3964, is distinguished by its retention of the French wing roundels, with British-style ones on the fuselage only. The aircraft I'll be building earned a measure of fame (and a DSO for the pilot, Flight Commander Lt. Reginald Bone) on March 19, 1916, when it forced down a Friedrich
  11. To celebrate 100 years since the formation of the Royal Naval Air Service on 1 July 1914: Flight Sub Lieutenant Raymond Collishaw's 1 1/2 Strutter from the Western Front in 1916. I believe his gunner in this aircraft was R S Portsmouth for the famous French/Royal Navy bombing raid on the Obendorf Mauser works. This is the Eastern Express issue of the old Toko kit. A nice build, well moulded and relatively easy (in biplane terms) to build. FLY NAVY FredT
