  1. The Vickers Wellesley is a striking aeroplane. Its unique appearance arrests the eye. Ungainly as its fuselage may seem, the Wellesley's great spread of wing lends its appearance the air of a sailing bird. A novel construction method which achieved great strength with light weight allowed that wide span, which enabled the Wellesley to carry a similar load of bombs to that of its twin-engined contemporary, the original Whitley with its two Tiger radials, and to do so at higher speed with a quicker rate of climb. Accounts of the Wellesley often emphasize its being predecessor to the famo
  2. Not the easiest build, instructions a bit vague in places. Represents an a/c of 223Sqn Sudan 1940. Cheers 20181229_170609 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20181229_170554 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20181229_170544 by bryn robinson, on Flickr 20181229_170524 by bryn robinson, on Flickr
  3. I will be in with this. Greg in OK
  4. Vickers Wellesley, one of those forgotten types from the unfashionable side of modelling. Here's the very first boxing that I will be using for the build: Typical Matchbox kit, basic but accurate to the eye. I'll add a few details but won't be going rivet crazy - actually theres very few rivets in the design as it is a smaller brother to it's more famous stablemate the Wellington and shares it's fabric covered geodesic structure. As befits the simple kit it's appears a simple build: Schemes are two similar green/brown birds differentiated by their engines. Option 1 is a standard short
  5. For my next trick - the rarely seen, desert exiled brother of Wellington... Anyone know of a Wellesley workaround or source of reference pix. There are plenty of generic exterior shots but not in much detail, nor is there a huge number of interior views. There are a few detailed models out there but I would like to judge a selection from the real deal, especially as I intend to so a LRDA as opposed to a standard mk1. Trust me to choose the difficult version... Actually I looked at the Matchbox decals and had doubts as they've seen better days. If they so end up u/s then the LRDA aircraft
  6. This is the build thread for my entry (as of now) in the Bomber Command group build- the Valom Vickers Wellesley I. First, the box art: There wasn't much sun when I took the pictures of the sprues below, so I played with the lighting settings on my camera and then the contrast to capture the geodesic detail on the kit. The detail is still a bit unclear: The kit comes with two fuselages, the other for the LRDU variant, perhaps? The floor windows and the lower fuselage window shown on the box art aren't provided in the kit. I'm not sure if I will add them yet. The wings. The light
