The last minutes of He 111 P-2 ,5./Kampfgeschwader 4 " General Wever " before it force lands as a result of an attack by a Skua Mk2 of 800 sq FAA ,HMS Ark Royal ,Norway 1940 I think that the last and only dogfight Double i have attempted was over 40 years ago so about time i do another one . The inpiration comes from the box art of the newish Airfix P-2 kit . I do not build many 1/72 kits and have some 1/48th and a 1/32 kit in the stash ,but i didnt want to bite off more than i can chew for this G/B as i have done before ,resulting in lack of postings of my progress as i concentrate tomuch on deadline times . I feel very chiled with this choise even though the Skua is so far out of my normal build choise . I have absolutly no FAA colours or refrances and it looks a wee bit fidly ,however it will broaden my horizons . Before i ramble on her is the box art i aim to recreate . a06014-size-60_1 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr I hope to add battle damage ,flames, smoke and terified crew . At this point i would like to pay respect to flight engineer Willi Stock who was killed during the attack . Here are some of my typical poor quality photos of the kit parts etc . sh72140 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr This is the Airfix Dogfight double stand P1030388 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr I have become addicted to canopy masking sets ,result of getting older and not as careful with the cash . P1030389 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr I have even splashed out on a mask set for the splinters . Two crew needed for the Skua . Absolutly nothing FAA or RAF in the spares box in 1/72 P1030390 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1030391 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1030392 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr P1030392 by Alistair Pearce, on Flickr I have to sort out some prop blurs of some type .
