  1. I've just finished this in the FROG GB and thought it might be of interest to a wider audience: The aircraft is well-photographed example from 60 squadron, based in the North-West Frontier (present-day Khyber Pakhtunkhwa), some time before 1930 (leading blue stripe on rudder). I picked up the kit for four quid from a vendor at SMW in 2018, and the conversion was inspired by an article in the May 1966 edition of Meccano Magazine by Doug McHard. A few notes: The engine is an accident. I expected to have to source one from elsewhere and I just started messing around with the kit one and some scraps for fun. It ended up looking too good for me to throw away (but unfortunately not much like a Jupiter) so it stayed... The bombs are left over from a Airfix DH4 kit. They look longer than the 112lb bombs in the photos (don't know whether they are a different earlier type or simply not accurate) and as a result I've put them side by side instead of in tandem on a single rail. There is such a lot of extra detail that could be added to these inter war general purpose machines (bomb rails for instance); it's sometimes hard to know when to stop when you find yourself in a rabbit hole. I don't have any figures appropriate to the period or location to pose alongside. Shorts and solar topees were the order of the day. I need to build a DH4 to go with this, my DH9 (Airfix conversion) and 9A (KP) so I can pose them for a family group photo. Apart from giving the tyres a sandy dusting, I didn't do any explicit weathering. The model got handled and touched up so much when I was rigging and adding all the detail that it ended up looking pretty well used without any extra help! Another inspiration for this build was @hendie's magnificent 1/48 CAD design and 3D print scratch build of a 28 Squadron Wapiti here on BM. It was interesting to me to see how different the three builds were to each other, driven by the different modelling eras, techniques and starting points. The WIP for my build is here if you are interested, and the Doug McHard article can be found here. Thanks for looking, Adrian

  5. So, before the CMR Wapiti was released the only way to build the Wapiti, The Indian Air forces first mount was to modify the Frog/Novo Wallace or the merlin models plastic and White metal Wapiti. The less said about both the better!! I used the Merlin fuselage and undercarriage, Wallace wings and empennage, Aeroclub white metal Jupiter engine, a paper clip for the Lewis mount and a small brass Russian cottage lewis gun. Vallejo paints and sprue rigging with spare decals. A basic no-nonsense build with no bells and whistles that ill keep for the CMR kit!! The aircraft is from the IAF's No 1 Sqn the Tigers at Miranshah when operating against Afridi tribesmen on the NWFP circa 1933. . .
  6. Hi, I am doing models for about 45 years now. At present they are only 1/72 military airplanes from 1935-45, so mostly WWII but also Spanish Civil War and Sino-Japanese war(s). I would like to show photos of some of my models on this forum. Whole collection is now a little bigger than 300 items. So it will take me a while to show some of them. I am doing a lot of conversions and upgrades (I belive no downgrades...), so I hope it will be not too boring. I would like to start with two models made from old Frog kit of Westland Wallace prototype. One is Wapiti from IAF, begining 1942, the second one is Wallace II TT from likely 1943, RAF. The code letters in case of Wallace II are likely but not sure - the original photo (in the background) left some doubts... Please enjoy them Jerzy-Wojtek Wallace II: Wapiti: EDIT, 29 July 2015 I posted those two models about year ago. Meanwhile I added depth charges on Wapiti (since she was used in winter 1941/42 for coastal patrol in India) and tried to change letter codes on Wallace II from II-H to L1-H as was suggested in one of latest posts. Some more photos then: Wapiti: Wallace Mk II:
